Friday the 13th Part II
For some reason, the Internet community bought into the unsubstantiated rumor that Platinum Dunes is pushing ahead with its Friday the 13th sequel for a target release date of August 13, 2010, despite refutes from PD frontman Brad Fuller. Today we’ve got more evidence that it’s not to be expected this summer, and that’s probably a good thing.
At some point in the year 2010, it will be winter. And even mass murderers need to suit up for such an occasion, as well as keep their pot neat and clean from those pesky snowflakes.
Like everybody else, I was amazed to see Platinum Dunes’ Friday the 13th remake hack its way to a $40 million opening weekend earlier this year. Audiences were ready for the triumphant return of Jason Voorhees, and box office receipts proved as much.
