UPDATE: Friday the 13th Sequel Moving Forward Without Platinum Dunes
Can it be that the celluloid gods have heard my embittered pleas and taken action? Is it true that Platinum Dunes has left the Friday the 13th franchise behind after one shockingly awful entry that missed the point entirely? Right now all signs are pointing to 'yes'.
The folks over at Friday the 13th's official site are reporting that Brad Fuller, Andrew Form and co. are vacating Camp Crystal Lake and that Warner Bros. is currently searching for a new creative team to resurrect Jason Voorhees once again. Warner, I'm just throwing this out there ... I'm available.
Of course, there has been no official word yet from the studio in charge, Warner Bros., but the folks at the Friday the 13th site claim they've been sitting on this for a while and the information is good. We'll bring you more as we have it, but let's cautiously rejoice in the meantime!
The site that broke the story seems to be back-peddling a bit by removing the original bit of news and changing the story. We have feelers out to Platinum Dunes. Expect a comment soon.
