Some final casting bits found their way online today for the upcoming Friday the 13th sequel, which starts rolling very soon over in Austin, TX under the direction of Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake helmer Marcus Nispel.
The Hollywood Reporter got word that Danielle Panabaker (Mr. Brooks) has grabbed the lead female spot for the reinvention of the Jason Voorhees mythology, playing the adventurous and athletic girlfriend of what the trade describes as an “alpha male”, who will be played by Travis van Winkle (Transformers).
Jonathan Sadowski (Live Free or Die Hard) and Aaron Yoo (Disturbia) have also joined the cast, playing a techie with way too much knowledge of Camp Crystal Lake and a quirky guy who likes pretty girls, respectively.
We’re in the 11th hour now, folks; this remake really is happening. Kind of hard to believe, after all these years, isn’t it?
