Ritter, Keena joins cast of slasher

Brad Renfro has dropped out of New Line Cinema’s “Freddy vs. Jason” and will be replaced as Jason by Jason Ritter, who can be seen in this weekend’s top movie, “Swimfan.”

Also joining the cast is Monica Keena, who had a starring role in Fox’s Judd Apatow series “Undeclared.”

Directed by Ronny Yu, “Freddy vs. Jason” combines the villainy of Freddy Krueger of “A Nightmare on Elm Street and Jason Voorhees of “Friday the 13th.” Now shooting in Vancouver, the film will serve as the 8th and 11th movie, respectively, of the series.

Ritter, the son of actor John Ritter, is managed by the Burstein Co. Keena is repped by the Gersh Agency.
