Tuesday night Bloody Disgusting told you that Jason Voorhees would be returning to theaters on March 13, 2013.
So far there’s no other news available – just speculation and rumor. The only thing that we have confirmed as fact is that Platinum Dunes is still producing for Paramount Pictures.
Dunes, Michael Bay’s company run by Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, produced the modern day 2009 remake that starred Derek Mears as the iconic slasher Jason Voorhees, who tortures a group of teens trespassing on his land.
With Paramount announcing the date alongside the title Friday the 13th (2015), speculation has run rampant that the studio is actually remaking the franchise once again. There is no confirmation of this, but the fact that it wasn’t announced as Friday the 13th Part 2 is definitely eyebrow-raising.
And let’s not forget that the next Friday will in fact be the 13th in the franchise, if you count Freddy vs. Jason.
I expect a celebration.
