    Chat with the producers

    BD: Can you guys set the record straight on the sequel or remake question? Some people seem to think it’s taking place around the time of the first few movies

    Form: Well it’s definitely not a sequel. It’s what we call a reboot of the Friday the 13th franchise. So it would lean more toward a remake but it’s not a remake of Friday the 13th, because we all know Jason is only in the last scene of that movie. He’s definitely the killer in this film.

    BD: So it’s more like Casino Royale or Batman Begins...

    Fuller: Exactly.

    BD: You guys have mentioned parts 2-4 as an influence, can you go into a little more detail on that? Are we talking like, those types of kills, the types of characters, the locations [later films sort of went outside the usual summer camp/lake area]?

    Form: (to Fuller) Those were your bible...

    Fuller: Right. What we did was take the story points that were presented in 1-4, and that was our bible. That is what we went for, and then came up with the story for this movie. We got rid of everything that came after the fourth one. We wanted it to be set on Crystal Lake, we wanted the scares to be horrifying, we wanted kids to be having sex and drinking and smoking and having fun. So that’s why we kept it within those first four movies.

    BD: Let’s talk about that money shot in the teaser [the last shot, which features a very fast moving Jason scrambling toward and then swinging a machete at a girl on the ground]. What’s going on there, besides obviously killing someone?

    Form: Well... [he’s worried about spoilers]

    Fuller: (shrugs) He is! (laughs)

    Form: We wanted to show the audience that Jason moves in this film, he does not walk-

    BD: Or teleport.

    Form: He does not teleport! When he moves he moves quickly, and when he strikes he strikes fast. And that was why we used that shot to close the trailer, just to show everyone that this IS a different Jason.

    Fuller: We also wanted to show that the sack was in there, from part 2.

    Form: Right, the sack, and then obviously the mask from part 3.

    BD: One thing about 3, when they made it, no one was expecting Jason to be the most prolific movie slasher of all time, or that the mask would be this iconic image that would last for the rest of the series. And so when he first appears with it [in 3] it’s kind of matter-of-fact; he just sort of has it on all of a sudden. So one reason why I am excited for your movie is that I assume you will be correcting that?

    Form: Yes. We talked about it with the writers... that IS the iconic moment of the movie, when he takes the sack off and puts the hockey mask on, you KNOW Jason is born!

    Fuller: And it’s a hard scene. We want it to feel as iconic as it can. We shot it in half a day, it was quick, and I don’t think we realized how important it WAS when we shot it. So we’re working very hard to make that scene perfect.

    BD: One thing I didn’t see much of in the trailer was daytime. When I think about the older ones, particularly 2 and 3, I think of a lot of daytime scenes, the more suspense type stuff. How much daytime will be in the film, if any?

    Form: A lot of the movie takes place during the day. That was just a conscious choice with this piece [the Comic Con teaser]. When we go back and release a full trailer I think you’ll see more of the daytime. But you know, yeah, these kids are on the lake, having fun, doing things, and he does stalk during the day. A lot of stuff happens during the day. I’d say 65% night and 35% day.

    BD: At the panel you guys mentioned that you’re still not definitely doing Nightmare on Elm St... what’s the holdup?

    Form: We would like nothing more than to work on that movie. And we’ve expressed our interest to the studio-

    Fuller: And to a room of three thousand people!

    Form: Yeah. And we’re just waiting to see, waiting to hear from them.

    Interview with Jason!

    BD: So when you got the role, did you go back to Kane Hodder or some of the other Jasons to kind of get a sense of what to do and what NOT to do, or did you just sort of start from scratch?

    Derek Mears: I did... I’m familiar with the entire series, I’m a fan. I knew a lot of the movies. My favorites were always 2, 3, and 4. My ultimate favorite is 4. So I went back and watched those and tried to pick apart what I liked about them, and it was that they were all based in reality. I didn’t really go on from there.

    BD: For the most part that’s probably a good idea...

    Derek Mears: (laughs) Yeah...

    BD: Though I do like 6 a lot.

    Derek Mears: Oh totally. CJ Graham in 6 is great. But I really wanted to do my own thing, do what the script was telling me and let that be my blueprint for the character. But then at the very end, sort of like icing on the cake, after a couple of takes I would do things that were like little homages to some of the other actors, as a tribute to them, because they were all great, and I am honored to be among them. So little things here and there; I go through a window like in 2, and there’s a part where I do a little cock of the head like Ted White did [in 4]. And it was great, because other guys in the crew were big fans of the films, so after one of those little nods I’d go and ask “did you get that?” and they’d be like “Yeah! That was totally from the one...” you know, whatever movie.

    BD: Most of the movies, if not all, I can’t quite recall for sure, find a way to get the mask off so we can see Jason’s face. Are we going to get that in this one? They dump you in latex?

    Derek Mears: We did shoot one, I don’t know if they are going to use it or not. But it was shot. Scott Stoddard did the makeup of the character in general, and also did the reveal underneath. He’s also a huge fan, probably bigger than I am, so he was like “This is a mixture of 2 and 3...” or this and that. But it’s a hard thing to do, to take a mixture of something old and create something new out of it. And try hard to move forward, because you want the series to move forward and give the fans something new. And he’s great, I am a firm believer that I’m only 50% of the equation; the other 50% is Scott and his team. I like to say that I’m the lucky guy who gets to fly the jet fighter, but I have no idea how to make one, or the physics of what is happening. So they make the machine, and I just fly it!

    BD: How long is the process? You arrive on set as Derek, how long until you are Jason?

    Derek Mears: The makeup takes about an hour and a half, with the hockey mask. The sack was even quicker. The full makeup, if we end up using it, was about four hours, three or four hours. It’s funny, Danielle Panabaker took two hours to get her makeup on, and I was like “OK I’m playing Jason with all these prosthetics, and yet it takes me a half hour less to get all made up?” She’s a great girl.

    BD: What kind of stunts and acrobatics do you get to do in this one? Jason never really moved fast, but we see in the trailer that you’re lunging and running around...

    Derek Mears: My background is stunts, my profession is a balance between acting and stunts. I have a passion for fighting, as a hobby. For fun, I don’t want to hurt anyone! It’s a sport. It helps out a lot for the character because it’s really extremely physical, and you’re seeing Jason do things he’s never done before, which makes it exciting and really intense. The fights and.... well I don’t want to give anything away, spoil any surprises.

    BD: Oh I’m used to that... one of the girls wouldn’t even tell me whether or not Jason kills people in the movie.

    Derek Mears: (laughs) That is great! It’s so hard to keep a secret. It’s something you really like, and you’re proud of it, and people ask about it but you can’t tell them anything. It’s like “I can’t tell you yet, just hold on! Wait, wait, wait!” It’s tough, it’s really tough.

    BD: Well this is the first REAL Friday the 13th movie to be made since all of these horror sites have been around.... a lot of us started these sites because we loved the horror movies that were coming out when we were growing up, which were primarily Friday the 13th sequels. So it’s like a unique level of interest on our part; as fans, we are using our access to you guys not just for news but to sate our personal appetites as well, you know, “There’s a new Jason movie!!!”

    Derek Mears: Yeah, I understand. I cruise all of the sites too, as a fan. And I feel such a responsibility to the fans. I feel like I got picked out of the fans, and they said “You’re the guy who has to represent”, and then it’s like I am leaving the other fans behind as I go off to battle. “See you guys, hope I can win this one for us!” Big responsibility. But fun though, it’s an honor.

    BD: So what’s next for you?

    Derek Mears: I got a couple offers but nothing’s signed yet. The actor’s strike is kind of stalling a lot of projects. And I don’t want to jinx anything.

    BD: Horror stuff though, right? Our type of stuff?

    Derek Mears: (laughs) Possibly!

    That's a good teaser. Is his mother appearing in this movie at all, or are they skipping over her character?

    Matt, they filmed scenes with her and young Jason but they've been cut from the film. (I don't really mind. LOL.)
