KANE HODDER UPDATE

Dread Central reports:

Since he was given the shaft from the 2003 summer blockbuster Freddy vs. Jason you might think actor/stunt man Kane Hodder would be one bitter dog with some serious anger to throw around. (Just keep that machete away from him, by all means!) But Hodder is the antithesis of that. He's a working actor (a privilege in and of itself) who digs his fans and is more than honest when talking about the biz and those in it (ahem, Steven Seagal). The proof of this was in the bloody pudding last weekend at Rue Morgue's Festival of Fear (coverage day one, day two) when an opportunity to see him on stage became a standing room only event.

The hot topic on the table, still, was his absence from New Line's royal horror rumble in which Ken Kirzinger donned the hockey mask for a face-off with Freddy Krueger. Although anything that Hodder has to say about the whole situation has already been said countless times (the man's rightfully ticked about the 'snubbing') there's now talks of a sequel on the horizon. One that would throw Bruce Campbell's reluctant hero, Ash, into the fray. 'Jason meets Ass, I mean, Ash. I guess they can try it,' says the former Voorhees. 'I haven't decided if I think that'd be a good idea or not. Just like I never was sure if Jason in space was a good idea. I don't know, [Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash] would be interesting on a certain level. Ash is more human, so I don't know how the battle would go.'

Hodder adds that he is aware of a rumor going around that New Line, based on F vs. J's success, has decided to extend the Friday the 13th franchise with another Jason film and television series. 'Sean Cunningham has talked about a television version of Friday the 13th and it would just have Jason here and there which is probably a good idea because I don't know if people would want to see the same thing every week. If it was just sporadic that Jason would show up, I think that'd be kind of cool and certainly better than the other Friday the 13th series that had no Jason.' Until that show comes to pass, however, the man's going to keep busy with doing what he does best...killin' people on screen.

Two projects that will help him do just that are awaiting some solid funding while a third is in development at Dimension. Hodder says that The Last Horror Picture Show, which will also star Gunnar Hansen and Robert Englund, is not having the best of luck scoring the bread it needs to roll cameras while another indie project, Hatchet, is in slightly better shape, but he hasn't heard a recent status report. In that film, directed by Adam Green, Hodder would play a bayou killer. Recent reports claim that film is gearing up for principal photography this fall. You can check out a teaser trailer, that features the FX work of John Carl Buechler, here. Then there's Backwater, another bayou-set film. The rights for this one were picked up by Dimension in early 2003. It's supposedly based on a video game of the same name in which the player is on the run from a killer who calls himself Mr. Jangle. Hodder also revealed that he's pushing to slip into the jumpsuit of Michael Meyers for the ninth Halloween film.

The actor recently wrapped the premiere episode that kicks off the fourth season of Alias as well as Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects. On the sequel to House of 1000 Corpses he acted as the film's stunt coordinator, but did he get a little time in front of the camera as well? 'I do appear in The Devil's Rejects, but it's going to be a very valuable piece of trivia at some point because you're not really going to know where I am. I have a character name and everything, but [my role is] not really obvious.' And what does he enjoy more: the acting or the stunt biz? 'By far the acting is better,' Hodder reveals. 'I love designing stunts and things like that, but it's even more rewarding when I can design stuff I'm gonna participate in. That's why every acting thing I get has some kind of stunt involved. That's why it was good to do Monster [with Charlize Theron] because there was no action, just dialogue. But I always like doing the stunts myself.'
