Producer denies 'Friday the 13th' rumours
He assured fans that the Platinum Dunes remake will retain the gruesome elements of the 1980 horror classic.
He told Bloody Disgusting: “How do you remake a rated R horror movie and take the guts out literally and figuratively? What is F13 without sex, drugs and a really, really long sharp machete?
"And why would we, horror fans ourselves, produce a movie devoid of the things that made the title so appealing in the first place? So let me say for the record, that the F13 that we start shooting this Thursday is a full bodied, rated R film."
The movie stars Danielle Panabaker, Jared Padalecki, Jonathan Sadowski, Travis van Winkle, Aaron Yoo and Derek Mears.
