Brad Fuller on Twitter
Now that the Friday the 13th franchise has come home to Paramount, we’ve been waiting patiently to find out when work will start on the next installment so we can get ourselves geared up for Jason’s latest rampage. Finally we have something to report.
While answering fan questions on Twitter, Platinum Dunes’ Brad Fuller posted the following, “We are wrapping TMNT and Almanac over the next month. Then we start to work on F13.”
JUST BRING BACK DEREK MEARS!
Platinum Dunes is the production company created by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form. They have produced several genre remakes throughout the last decade including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hitcher, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and, of course, Friday the 13th.
Having Jason back at Paramount has got to feel right to more fans than just us. It’s no secret that the studio famously discarded the franchise at the end of the 1980s – after milking it for all it was worth. But there’s something about this current alignment that gives us hope. We didn’t like the last Friday the 13th much, but if they can just tweak those elements ever so slightly (likable characters, inventive kills, no captives), then they’ll be on to something.
