RONNY YU ON FvsJ
The Diabolical Dominion posted this following transcript from RUE MORGUE Magazine issue #32......
'The man that is giving us what is perhaps the most anticipated movie in horror history, Freddy Vs. Jason sat down to do an interview with Rue Morgue, and one of our regular board members Misfitz managed to snag the good stuff! Finally...we get tons of details from the man behind the camera, but are you ready for them?
There are spoilers here -
This entire interview will be in issue #32 of Rue Morgue, or check out the website here. Here's a quick lowdown of the good stuff and thanks to Misfitz again for putting us on to it. ......
Q. What do you hope to bring to Freddy vs Jason?
A. ... I think New Line was looking for someone completely different. When I told them I hadn't seen the other films they said, 'Great, that's perfect. We want a director who's never seen an Elm Street or Friday film.'
Q. How would you describe the relationship between Freddy and Jason in the movie?
A. ...Freddy's scared of fire and Jason's scared of water, which is as elemental as it gets. There's also a great theme of revenge and not messing with someone's mother, because Jason goes crazy when Freddy messes with his mother...They each have strengths and weaknesses and advatages over each other.
Q. The story begins at Camp Crystal Lake and moves to Springwood.. and back to the lake for the finale...
A. Yes, basically.
Q. Does Freddy have a new look?
A. Yes, Freddy has a new demon face, so to speak, which i don't want to talk about. Robert and I filmed that scene up at a water tank ... basically Freddy's head explodes and you see past faces of his victims...
Q. Can we assume since Jason is emotionless, that Freddy dominates the dramatic parts...
A. You could say that. Freddy's a lot more sick in this film and really torments Jason, so much so that i hope people feel sorry for Jason. i think of the film more about Freddy than jason.
Q. How is FvsJ Hitchcockian?
A. We filmed a rave scene ... Jason jumps out and starts killing ALL OF THEM. he's killing cuz his mother told him to. He thinks he'll bring her back to life by killing enough victims. But,of course, it's Freddy all along. The more teens die, the more powerful Freddy becomes.....We also have a great TRIPLE ENDING in the film which i think people will be talking about a lot.
Q. Do you definately expect a sequel?
A. Oh yeah. See, I think of this as the first film in a series, not the 20th. We're kind of forgetting everything that's happened before and starting from scratch while at the same time showing flash backs... like a refresher. Everyone knows who Freddy and Jason are so WE WANNA MAKE A FILM FOR THE MASSES, NOT REALLY THE HARDCORE FANS WHO MIGHT REMEMBER SOME DETAIL FROM A SEQUEL 10 YEARS AGO. There's no mention of Jason X, that's for sure.
No doubt some of the things said in this interview will piss people off royaly. The strange thing is it doesn't seem like they're re-inventing the mythos of the characters, just adding to them. We'll wait and see how it turns out.'
