FILM 1711: FREDDY VS. JASON
TRIVIA: Ken Kirzinger had to undergo some dental work during filming, but it would have taken too much time to remove his make-up and costume and reapply them. When he arrived at the dentist's office still dressed as Jason (without the hockey mask), people were afraid he was an escaped psychopath, and almost called the police.
Standing at 6'5" (1.96 meters) tall, Ken Kirzinger is the tallest actor to date to play Jason Voorhees.
The final film in which Robert Englund plays the role of Freddy Krueger.
Brent Chapman (Blake's father) and Kyle Labine (Freeburg) appeared in Halloween: Resurrection (2002), making them the first actors to appear in a Freddy, a Jason, and a Michael Myers film.
Brad Renfro was originally cast as Will, but had to be replaced less than a week before shooting began. Jason Ritter, who actually got the part, had initially tested, but they didn't feel that he was right for the role.
Robert Englund was excited at the casting of Katharine Isabelle as "Gibb", as he was a big fan of her cult-film Ginger Snaps (2000), a Canadian werewolf film.
During test and advance screenings, the ending was not added to the film. Instead, the following text appeared: "On August 15th, 2003 see the final sixty seconds and see who has survived...and what is left of them." This is a direct reference to the tagline for the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), which is "Who will survive and what will be left of them?"
Gibb (Katharine Isabelle) is always shown wearing a red baseball hat. This is an reference from Carrie (1976), where P.J. Soles' character always wore a red baseball cap. Isabelle appeared in Carrie (2002).
According to the book Slash of the Titans: The Road to Freddy vs Jason, the crossover sequel officially had sixteen screenwriters across ten different versions of the story. This was per the Writer's Guild Arbitration Panel findings. Unofficially, this movie had many more unsolicited treatments and drafts, both internally and externally.
