Jason Voorhees Actor To Become Killer In 'Joy Ride 3'

Yesterday, it was announced at Shock Till You Drop that Fox was kicking into high gear a second sequel in the Joy Ride franchise for which the maniacal killer 'Rusty Nail' torments his prey on the open road. Joy Ride 3 starts shooting on September 3rd, but who will play the aforementioned psychopath? Well, how about a guy who's played a killer before?

While speaking to the Winnipeg Free Press about the sequel, Writer/Director Declan O'Brien let out the name of a man a lot of people will know well from the Friday The 13th franchise as playing Jason Voorhees. Ken Kirzinger (Friday The 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan, Freddy vs Jason) was mentioned by O'Brien to be playing the title maniac 'Rusty Nail', so look for a tall, dominating force to play cat and mouse with his new prey soon. Check out what the film is about below and look for more news on this film when it is available!

About The Film
Rusty Nail is back on the road again looking to punish injustice at every turn — and this time it’s with a group of hothead twenty-somethings on their way to the Road Rally 1000. As they drive through a desolate shortcut on the way to the race, an encounter with Rusty turns sour, and soon he is tracking, teasing, and torturing them until the end of the road.
