Pulp Jason? Tarantino considers directing Friday the 13th movie

I have many fond and frightened memories from the Friday the 13th series so it is exciting that Quentine Tarantino may breath new life into Jason's lifeless corpse. From the Hollywood Reporter:

Quentin Tarantino is considering writing and directing a new installment in the long-running "Friday the 13th" series.

Tarantino is in early talks with New Line Cinema, where he is scheduled to meet with executives this week. The original "Friday," released in 1980 and featuring the hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees, spawned a series of sequels, including the 2003 hit "Freddy vs. Jason," in which Jason squared off against Freddy Krueger from the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series. New Line tried to make a sequel to "Freddy vs. Jason" involving the "Evil Dead" character Ash, but a deal with "Dead" rights holder Sam Raimi couldn't be reached. According to those familiar with the discussions, Tarantino is intrigued with the idea of playing with one of the movie's classic horror villains. If the project does develop, it could be the first film Tarantino directs outside Miramax Films. The filmmaker recently signed on to direct the season finale of CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."
