EXCLUSIVE: Platinum Dunes Partnering With Paramount For ‘Friday The 13th’ Sequel!!!



EDIT (6/12/13-9:28AM PST) Evan here, going through the tape this morning I found the following, verbatim, quote. “Platinum is still involved. They are still with it.” Just wanted to double-tap on this confirmation.

At the Hatchet 3 premiere, our own Evan Dickson interviewed Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees in the 2009 remake) who stated, “I spoke to Brad Fuller and he said that the rights are, as everyone knows, over at Paramount and they’re pushing hard. They’re going we want [a new Friday The 13th movie] as fast as possible.” So now we have confirmation that Platinum Dunes, the production company behind the 2009 remake, is partnering with Paramount for the sequel to Friday The 13th!

Platinum Dunes is Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Michael Bay. They are the studio behind such remakes as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare On Elm St. and many more.

Mears is hopeful to return as Voorhees, “…I know they [Platinum Dunes] like me.” He continues, “…look, even if I’m not a part of the series, as a fan I just want to see more.

Alright readers, who’s pumped for this news? I know that I loved the 2009 remake because it was absurd amounts of fun! I’m personally really excited to hear this news!
