Friday the 13th is a retelling of the original cult horror movie of the same name (1980) that spawned into a successful movie series. This remake of Friday the 13th, produced by Michael Bay, is directed by Marcus Nispel and written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. The film will take elements from the first three movies.

A bootleg version of the trailer of Friday the 13th shown at the last Comic Con has leaked online, here it is:
Friday the 13th
"A group of young adults discover a boarded up Camp Crystal Lake, where they soon encounter Jason Voorhees (Derek Mears) and his deadly intentions." (Source: IMDb)
The role of Jason Voorhees is played by Derek Mears (who played in The Hills Have Eyes 2 and Cursed among other horror films).
I guess Derek Mears' physique is fitting to the evil and twisted character of Jason Voorhees.
This trailer of Friday of the 13th gives some hope that it will remain faithful to the source material, but nevertheless adds some interesting input to the famous franchise.
