Producer Brad Fuller has let out the first shot of the upcoming Friday the 13th flick. Sort of. It’s really just a behind the scenes photo that shows us a Crystal Lake police cruiser along with Fuller and his producing partner, Andrew Form.
Along with the photo, Fuller talks about his visit to the set with director Marcus Nispel and he seems excited – though he has to be. He describes loosely one of the shots they were setting up, calling it “iconic,” and drawing up an image, in my mind, of a towering Jason Voorhees with a machete held high overhead. Fuller also states that the police cruiser is from a “before” shot with the after having a considerable amount of blood and broken glass. Nice.
While there is not much we can tell from this image, I’m pretty excited for a new, violent Jason film. The cruiser looks good, the location looks sufficiently menacing, and at least the still photographer is pretty good. Heh. But really, most of the Friday the 13th movies have sucked, so hopefully Nispel, who rocked out on the reimagined The Texas Chainsaw Massacre can really bring home the bloody bacon on this bad boy. Also, Michael Bay (AWESOME) is Executive Producing.
Are you excited for a new Jason Voorhees slaughterfest?
