Speaking of the Voorhees family, after the story broke, producer Daniel Farrands, who helped conceive the series with Geoff Garrett, responded to fan criticism over the alleged “storyline that re-imagines Jason in multiple time periods.”
“We will be exploring the origins of the Voorhees family,” Farrands told F13Franchise, “namely Pamela and Jason Voorhees, but doing so in flashbacks to past events that will be running concurrently with present day storylines.
“There is absolutely no time traveling of any kind,” he clarifies. Not that he should have to, because the press release in no way implies there would be time travel (come on, guys).
According to the announcement, the series is mostly contemporary, focusing on the eclectic characters of Crystal Lake who are forced to confront the return of the killer, as new secrets about his wacky family are revealed.
Paramount and Platinum Dunes are currently in talks with David Bruckner to helm the Friday the 13th reboot for a 2015 theatrical release.
