Paramount sets release date for the next "Friday The 13th"
It goes without saying these days that we can always expect a new instalment in one of the big Horror franchises i.e "Nightmare On Elm Street", "Halloween", "Hellraiser" and of course "Friday The 13th". Looks like the latter has has indeed been green lit, Paramount has confirmed this by licking down the release date of March 13, 2015!
Yes, you guessed it March 13th of 2015 is indeed a Friday, however as it stands we have no official title or information on the film. It is still currently unknown whether or not this film will be a sequel to the 2009 release or another stand alone reboot. I'm personally hoping for a reboot, the 2009 release was fun but not the best film.
"There are no further details other than that. We know Platinum Dunes will be producing the film, but there is no director and there are rumblings of the producers looking for a "found footage" approach." That worries me a lot, I do not think for a second that Jason Voorhees would work in a found footage style scenario, however I am open to being proven wrong.
