In news that excites and arouses me way more than it should, director Adam Green has confirmed that the latest installment in the gore-spewing slasher series Hatchet is officially filming.
Zach Galligan, otherwise known as Billy from the Gremlin series (another personal favorite), is set to star in the film, alongside horror icon Derek Mears, best known for playing Jason f*cking Voorhees. Also set to star in the film is Danielle Harris, who played the niece of Michael Myers in the later half of the Halloween series.
Mears will be playing the chief of a SWAT team assigned to go into the swamps and contain the horrors that have happened there. In other words, it's the original Jason Voorhees vs the new Jason Voorhees. And the fandom rejoiced.
According to director BJ McDonnell,
“The story finds Harris hunting down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Crowley’s ghost terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.”
There is no known release date at the time, but until then I will have to keep changing my pants from the horrgasm.
