A few months ago, we heard some rumors about a partnership between Paramount and Platinum Dunes to release a new Friday the 13th movie after Paramount got the rights to the franchise from New Line Cinema. Nothing much was said after that until Sean S. Cunningham, the director of the original Friday the 13Th film, started some rumors in an interview with FEARnet. Cunningham stated that “there will be another Friday the 13th, which will probably get shot in the spring. If it all goes as I would like, it would then be released at the beginning of 2015.”
He also mentioned that the new film would not be a continuation of the remake, but rather a “fresh story.” He also mentions the possibility of another Freddy vs. Jason. How sweet would that be?
Let’s see what comes of this. I will take any Friday the 13th that I can get.
