Marcus Nispel to Direct Friday the 13th Reboot?

No statute of limitations on the law of diminishing returns.

You can’t keep a good man down. Nor, apparently, can you keep an undead, hockey mask-wearing lunatic off the big screen.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Marcus Nispel “is in final negotiations” to take over the long-discussed resuscitation of the Friday the 13th film franchise, which is being shepherded back to theaters via an unholy union between New Line, Paramount/MTV, and Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes imprint. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have written the reboot’s script, which will apparently vacuum out the few crumbs of character development that existed in the original series:

While Jason made only a brief appearance in the final frames of the first movie in 1980 and didn’t even don his famous mask until the third movie, the new movie will focus on Jason — who will wear the mask and kill — and keep the famous setting of Crystal Lake.

Directing Friday will provide a Platinum Dunes homecoming for Nispel, who previously helmed the shingle’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake.
