It seems that the filmmakers behind the upcoming rehash of the Friday the 13th series have found just what they were looking for in youngster Caleb Guss.
According to WorstPreviews, Guss has been cast in the role of iconic mass murderer Jason Voorhees, in the film’s flashbacks of Voorhees as a child. As we all know, the legendary masked killer was himself first killed in an accident at the summer camp Crystal Lake, and then reincarnated as the six-and-a-half-foot dude that we’ve all come to know and love.
In other news, producer Brad Fuller revealed the movie will carry an R rating (previous reports indicated that it would be PG-13). The film is set for release on February 13, 2009.
