We’ve been biting our tongues for the past week with TheWrap officially breaking the news that David Bruckner, who wrote and directed the “Amateur Night” segment of V/H/S for us, is in negotiations to get behind the camera for the Friday the 13th reboot for Paramount and Platinum Dunes!
While plot details aren’t necessarily under wraps, it’s unclear what approach Bruckner plans to take with the reboot, or how it will incorporate the Jason Voorhees/Camp Crystal Lake mythology.
It’s also unclear whether Friday the 13th will employ a found-footage approach, that was previously mentioned. TheWrap agrees that Bruckner would be a wise choice, as his V/H/S segment “Amateur Night” follows three guys who bring a mysterious girl back to their motel room, where terror strikes.
It should also be mentioned that Bruckner previously co-wrote and co-directed the 2007 horror film The Signal, and he has also been working on the home invasion thriller Intrusion for producers Doug Davison and David Linde.
Paramount has already picked out the perfect release date for the Friday the 13th reboot — Friday, March 13, 2015.
Platinum Dunes principals Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing with Michael Bay.
