Today we got a mixed bag of news regarding the Friday the 13th series. The bad side of this is that Platinum Dunes is still attached to the pic. However, the good news is that the next installment of the long running slasher is still moving forward (“New Friday in ’09?” – July 2007).
STYD got in the exclusive word that the next Friday movie has found itself two writers: Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. These are the same guys that brought us the guilty pleasure known as Freddy VS Jason. At least it’s in the hands of guys who sort of know the material … now if only Platinum Dunes wasn’t involved.
I may be speaking too soon, though; Friday the 13th may be the perfect tool for Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. The over the top violence of The Hitcher didn’t really work, but that kind of attitude should make for a fun romp with the unstoppable Voorhees.
While we all wait, kill some time over in our Friday archive.
Jason will drop trucks in our forums.
