Marcus Nispel, director of the upcoming Friday the 13th remake, has found his Jason.

According to Ain’t It Cool News and Bloody-Disgusting, the man behind the hockey mask in the new Friday will be none other than Derek Mears. A glimpse of Mears in The Hills Have Eyes 2 offers proof of his qualifications for the role:

AICN‘s Moriarty, who worked with Mears on an episode of Masters of Horror, refers to him as “dead right for the part,” saying he’s “one of us… a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE geek who really loves the monsters he plays.”

The remake, written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, is scheduled for a February 13, 2009 release. Mears will join a cast that already includes Jared Padalecki.
