Will Pamela Voorhees Be In New ‘Friday the 13th’?!



You see, Jason was my son, and today is his birthday…

There’s a bit more in the Omelete interview with Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, who revealed that the new Friday the 13th will take place in the 1980’s.

“Sex, Drugs, always beautiful people dying, these things do not change. And we can develop more problematic relationship [Jason] with the mother,” they explain.

The statement is massively important as it reveals that the new Friday the 13th will not only feature Jason Voorhees, but also his mother Pamela. It’s also interesting the way that the response is phrased (although, this is a translation), which implies that there will be actual interactions between Jason and his mother.

Does this mean that the filmmakers will be echoing the sequels in which Jason hallucinates his mother’s presence? Or, will we see a living, breathing Pamela Voorhees controlling her son? If she is alive, it definitely changes Jason’s motivation for murdering the campers…

Frankly, all of this artistic chatter is exciting to me as it shows that Platinum Dunes, Paramount Pictures and director David Bruckner (The Signal, V/H/S) are trying to do something new and different with the franchise that’s stuck in quicksand.

Oh, and there’s this little bit of news: Friday the 13th will be rated “R”.

“There is no PG-13 version in the world of Jason Vorhees,” they exclaimed.
