Will a new “FRIDAY THE 13TH” be a sequel to 2009’s?
Busy times for FRIDAY fans, indeed. As all current twelve films near release in a tidy box set from Warners, the theatrical rights have returned to Paramount where all are curious just what they’ll do with a new go at it. Now, word comes that a continuation of the Platinum Dunes redo seems probable.
Bloody Disgusting caught up with Derek Mears — who most recently played Jason in the 2009 film — who had this to say: “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.”
No hard confirmation, but the Marcus Nispel-directed reboot was both fun and back-to-basics with a fantastic turn from Mears as the beloved slasher. Now, if Fuller & Co. do take it on, will we finally get the rumored Jason in the snow sequel? [Bloody]
