As Friday the 13th fans know, Kane Hodder is a stalwart staple of the franchise. Having played Jason Voorhees in four films, Kane easily holds the record for playing the Crystal Lake slasher the most times and now it's been announced that he'll be donning the weathered hockey mask once again at Chicago's Mad Mobster True Crime and Horror Expo, with F/X artist John Carl Buechler applying the makeup.

The announcement of Kane Hodder's upcoming return to Jason Voorhees comes not too long after Robert Englund appeared in Freddy Krueger makeup for the final time at Flashback Weekend in August. Here are the official details from Mad Mobster's Facebook page:

"February Friday the 13th, 2015, Kane Hodder will be donning the full makeup and costume designed by director and original FX designer John Carl Buechler. Fans will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a photo with one of the biggest horror icons of all time. The photo will be included in the "Friday the 13th with Kane Hodder and John C. Buechler" package on sale this Friday (Halloween), it will be $199. It will include one autograph from Kane and John, an in-makeup photo op with a green screen background (for up to 2 adults) and reserved seating at the Q&A. It does not include admission to the convention which is required (single day Friday is $25, weekend is $50). Tickets for Friday with Kane & John will be extremely limited, there will be a few available at the show for walk-up fans, but if you absolutely do not want to risk missing it, we strongly recommend pre-purchasing it ASAP."
