UPDATED ‘Blade’ Director NOT Approached for ‘FvJ 2′

We did a little checking with the folks over at New Line after a website reported that Stephen Norrington of ‘Blade’ might be directing Freddy vs Jason 2 for New Line Cinema’s highly anticipated sequel. Well another quote from someone inside, “It’s 150% false.” To check out the killed scoop, with the possibility of some truth read on…
The following portion of rumor is untrue, beware of it in the future:

“Another cool bit for those of us who are Blade fans is that Stephen Norrington has been approached by New Line to direct Freddy vs Jason 2,” according to Movieonlines.ca. They continue, “The script was just finished last week according to our source at New Line by an un-named writer who did some final minor re-writes.”

They continue with the following possibly true news, “Filming is set to start June 16th in Vancouver with a release date of 2006.”
