Allegedly, special effects legend Tom Savini was at the Mad Monster Party in North Carolina this weekend telling fans that he’s “being courted” to direct the next Friday the 13th.
Instead of rushing to post false news for the traffic bump, we did the work, checked with our sources, and were able to learn that this is completely untrue.
What we did find out, however, is that Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes are currently in discussions for a director to bring the Voorhees family back from the grave.
Watch for news on that soon here on Bloody Disgusting.
