Well someone beat us to the punch, but we can confirm it’s true- New Line Cinema is working on the Ultimate Friday the 13th Movie and is in talks with Quentin Tarantino to direct the bugger! Is this earth-shattering enough news for you? I hope I didn’t disappoint. Wouldn’t you agree? Forget Freddy vs Jaosn 2 for now? The news gets even bigger, but for now you can read on (talk about it here) and see what you shouldn’t be seeing just yet…UPDATE:Check back here tomorrow morning for a BIG surprise and I also want to clarify this is NOT a rumor!
IGN writes, “Oscar-winner Quentin Tarantino is in final negotiations to write and direct the Ultimate Jason Voorhees Movie, an all new Friday the 13th for New Line.
While the rumor mill had long suggested that the next movie might be Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash, that project never came together for a number of reasons.
Fans will instead be treated to the Ultimate Jason Voorhees Movie. The project will be a co-venture between New Line and Paramount Pictures. It is expected to be a “quickie” that could get underway as early as this year!
Tarantino’s production company, A Band Apart, referred us to the William Morris Agency. A rep at WMA would only advise us that Tarantino has “not yet” been offered the job while refusing to elaborate any further.”
