Even knowing the behind-the-scenes drama, I’m still shaking my head that it has taken Paramount Pictures, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures this long to get a sequel to the 2009 Friday the 13th off the ground.
Now that they’ve kicked at dirt for nearly four years, Warners/New Line have officially wasted their opportunity, giving the rights to franchise character, Jason Voorhees, back to Paramount Pictures for a piece in Christopher Nolan’s latest movie project, Interstellar (full details here).
Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that Platinum Dunes would put their producing hats back on for the sequel, one that we really hope takes place in the winter (like originally planned). The question is, when will this happen?
Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller responded to Twitter user @superchecco with the following update: “we are wrapping TMNT and Almanac over the next month. Then we start to work on F13.”
Fuller has been really active on Twitter (@bcfuller), so you can totally hit him up with your hopes and dreams for the franchise. They listen. Until then, tell US what you want from the new Friday the 13th.
