Jason X News

Calgary Sun Reporters

Toronto-based shock-film specialist David Cronenberg will be vacating his director's chair for a role in the upcoming 10th installment of "Friday The 13th."

"Jason X" is being directed by James Isaac, who has collaborated with Cronenberg in the past. According to Empire magazine, the new film is set in 2455, and Cronenberg plays a professor who returns to Earth with a group of students on a field trip, only to discover a frozen Jason.

Empire said the script has the teacher and students unwisely loading Jason onboard their ship for the flight home.

It's not Cronenberg's first shot at acting. He had roles in Don McKellar's "Last Night," Gus Van Sant's "To Die For", and Clive Barker's "Nightbreed."

Cronenberg also directed an episode of the syndicated TV show based on the "Friday The 13th" films, Empire said.
