If you feign surprise when you hear that a Friday the 13th Part 2 is in the works, you're officially insane. This year's F13 remake is based on a series that spans no less than 12 chapters, so it's pretty much assumed that the remake will earn its own sequel relatively soon. (But the Platinum Dunes guys are knee-deep in their Freddy remake, and remakes take priority over ... sequels. I guess.)

Anyway, the ridiculously large man who now plays Jason Voorhees is also a ridiculously nice guy, and he recently chatted with FEARnet about the inevitable sequel: "I don't know what they are planning on doing for the sequel, honestly, but in my opinion, I think less is more. If you just touch on aspects of his past, it's like the monster outside of the box theory; it's scarier when you don't know. I myself wouldn't want to see what he was like when he was younger. I would like to touch on it, but then move on." I think that's Mears (subtly) smacking the Halloween remake, and if that's the case, then Yay Derek says I.
