Friday the 13th Redux Scouting Scout?

Scout Taylor-Compton in talks for Friday the 13th?It’s not huge news but since it’s post-Oscar time in Hollywood there’s not a whole helluva lot going on this morning, so why not make mention of it? If nothing else I can make fun of Rob Zombie’s Halloween one more time…

Fearnet talked to Halloween remake star Scout Taylor-Compton at the recent Texas Frightmare Weekend, who reported that she’s been approached by Platinum Dunes to star in their upcoming Friday the 13th reboot. I don’t even have a snarky remark about the casting, because in all honesty I can barely remember if I liked Scout in Halloween or not. I tried to block as much of it out of my memory as possible.

Along with Wicked Little Things and An American Crime, Scout can also be seen in the upcoming DTV remake of April Fool’s Day. She’s becoming a bit of a scream queen, no? Friday the 13th, if she accepts it, will definitely put her over the edge. Personally I’m more interested in who’s going to play Jason when the remake gets rolling, news we’ll be hearing any day now.

Filming is set to start on the Friday the 13th reboot on April 21st so expect more casting announcements to roll in soon!

    Actually…someone’s gonna shoot me for this…how about…

    Kane…I mean, if we have to go with a pro wrestler…why not? Hell…he already somewhat looks like a mongoloid! Heh…God I miss Kane Hodder. He’s my one true Jason Voorhees.

    “No no no, it has to be either Alex Wright or Disco Inferno.”

    Err – who? I’m sorry I’m showing my age, and the fact that I never had cable TV in the UK (nor do I have it over here), so did not really see much of the pro-wrestling when it was on in the 90s.

    How about the Ultimate Warrior though?

    Gee golly, Scout Compton, the “actress” who couldn’t even salvage Zombie’s torturous remake. Goody!

    No no no, it has to be either Alex Wright or Disco Inferno.

  • PelusaMG

    No doubt some ex-pro wrestler will be up for playing Jason… How about Hulk Hogan, or maybe even The Undertaker?
