Panabaker the Female Lead in Friday the 13th


Danielle Panabaker has been cast as the female lead in the new Friday the 13th film, which Marcus Nispel is directing for Platinum Dunes, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Also joining the cast are Jonathan Sadowski, Travis van Winkle and Aaron Yoo. The project already features Jared Padalecki in the cast.

Panabaker is playing the adventurous, athletic girlfriend of van Winkle, who plays a rich alpha male type that gathers everyone together.

Yoo’s character, named Chumbler, is a guy who’s a little quirky and has a tendency to wear his attraction to pretty girls on his sleeve. Sadowski plays a techie who knows the horrific history of Camp Crystal Lake.
