Friday the 13th back from the dead
Produced by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, the movie will still be set at Camp Crystal Lake, where characters met a grisly end in the 1980 original.
However, it will feature a different killer this time around - but the camp counsellors will still be stalked one by one by the unseen slasher.
The original starred Kevin Bacon, who has gone on to be a major Hollywood actor in Oscar-winning fare such as Mystic River and Apollo 13.
He also counts the cult thriller Wild Things on his CV, in which he played a corrupt cop who teams up with Matt Dillon to con a rich socialite.
