THR is reporting that New Line Cinema has picked up “an untitled and top-secret horror pitch” from Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. You may remember them as the writers of the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th along with 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason (although if you watch “Never Sleep Again,’ there’s at least one line in there they didn’t write).
Per THR, “No details of the pitch are being revealed, but it is described as a potential franchise starter. It is not part of the micro-budget and found-footage trend.” Chris Bender, J.C. Spink and Jake Weiner of New Line-based BenderSpink are producing.
Definitely curious about this one.
