Platinum Dune’s ‘Friday the 13th’ not a remake?

Jason-Remake-SwordOkay, I know we have been posting news about the new ‘Friday the 13th’ movie more than Perez Hilton pokes fun at Britney Spears on his site, but it’s news, so I gotta put it up. According to a close source to the project, the new Platinum Dunes ‘Friday the 13th’ movie is apparently NOT a remake.

Our good friends at ShockTillYouDrop gives us this:

“It’s not a remake,” says our insider. Don’t even expect an origin tale – as some production listings around Hollywood are pegging it as. Imagine if there was a story to be told somewhere between parts two and four, just add water (from Camp Crystal Lake, duh), insert a leaner, meaner, faster Jason Voorhees, set to “blend” and you’ve got the recipe for what Dunes, writers Damian Shannon and Mark Swift and director Marcus Nispel got cookin’.

Give me a f*cking break! This is exactly what happened when Rob Zombie called his Halloween film, a “re-imagining.” It’s a remake! Just call as it is! If this film is going to have Jason Vorhees in it, take place at the infamous Camp Crystal Lake, and it’s not a SEQUEL to the franchise, then it’s a REMAKE. You can call it whatever you want ‘Platinum Dunes.’ You can say it’s a “re-vamp,” a “re-tread,” or “re-telling,” it’s still a REMAKE!!

If it looks like a duck and walks like duck….oh you get the point!

Expect to see the ‘Friday the 13th’ “re-vamp”/”re-imagining”/”re-tread” sometime next year.

What are your thoughts?
