It looks like Jason Voorhees will be donning a "sack" before finding his hockey mask in New Line's new take of Friday the 13th. Some photos of the iconic killer wearing his original mask have appeared online courtesy of Ryan Rotten over at Shock Til you Drop while producer Brad Fuller explains that they debated on whether to have Jason wearing it and how it was taken in & out of various scripts for the film until Damian Shannon and Mark Swift penned a perfect scene.

The film stars Amanda Righetti, Jared Padalecki, Jonathan Sadowski, Aaron Yoo and Travis Van Winkle. Director Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) led production, based on a screenplay by Shannon and Swift.
Plot Summary: Searching for his missing sister, Clay heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins that lie in wait behind moss-covered trees. And that's not the only thing hiding under the brush. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has with the help of a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they've entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history - the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake armed with a razor-sharp machete... Jason Voorhees.
Friday the 13th will strike theaters February 13, 2009.
