Now that Michael Bay has secured rights to remake every scary film, let the casting news begin. There is a good chance that Jared Padalecki, most recently of Supernatural fame, but known to Gilmore Girls fans as Dean, will star in the remake of Friday the 13th. According to Hollywood Reporter, this remake will "focus on the serial killer [Jason], who will wear his now-iconic hockey mask. Padalecki will play the lead, who investigates what happened up at Crystal Lake." Friday the 13th will open on Friday, Feb. 13, 2009.
Dean Jared will make for a pretty young detective but no matter. I'll certainly be rooting for his triumph over evil. Padelecki will also be seen in the upcoming Home for Christmas with heavyweights Marcia Gay Harden (love her) and Peter O'Toole. This guy's hot. Go Dean!
