Platinum Dunes' Friday the 13th Part II Up in the Air

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.

Given the immensely rising popularity of Mixed Martial Arts, I would not be at all shocked if some enterprising filmmaker eventually devises a slasher movie based around the world of MMA.
