Jason’ for New Line Cinema Published 3 months ago on January 7, 2020 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Before Ronny Yu jumped on board to direct New Line Cinema Freddy Vs. Jason, the company had another person in mind to take on the project. RELATED: NECA SHARES PHOTOS OF THEIR ‘FREDDY VS. JASON’ ULTIMATE JASON FIGURE News appeared online today via the folks at ScreenRant that heavy metal singer Rob Zombie almost directed the battle of the slasher icons, but turned it down because he was in the middle of pre-production on House of 1000 Corpses.
