Jason Won't Stay Dead; "Friday the 13th" Remake Still Alive

by | January 9, 2007 | Comments

Platinum Dunes producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller have been hitting every movie site on the net in an effort to get the word out on "The Hitcher." But all everyone seems to be asking about is that "Friday the 13th" remake. Is it still going forward?

Short answer: Yes. Long answer: Yes, but not anytime real soon. Now that a rights issue between Paramount and New Line has been cleared up, the producers aim to get cracking on that screenplay. "Sometime late next year" is what we’re being promised, and it seems like director Jonathan Liebesman may still be the #1 candidate for the job.

Nobody’s precisely sure on how much of it will be a remake and how much of it will be like any old sequel out there, but the producers seem insistent on avoiding the Mrs. Voorhees material, which is kind of a problem if you’re making a remake of the original "Friday the 13th," but hey, the thing could turn out great. It’s not like "Friday the 13th" is "Gone with the Wind."

Check out all the "F13" remake coverage at JoBlo’s, Fangoria, and Bloody-Disgusting.com.
