Shock Till You Drop
Rumors of the next entry in the Friday the 13th franchise being a found footage film have been swirling about for a while now, and just like Jason himself, they refuse to die. That being said…
STYD’s Ryan Turek posted via Twitter this morning that he heard the producers of the new film are still heavily considering taking the flick the first-person route. Honestly, we weren’t even going to bother writing this up as a news story as it’s still all rumor, and one that’s been around for quite some time at that, but since you cats keep emailing us about it to find out if it’s true…
The fact of the matter is that there’s really nothing to tell you at this time. Producers are hearing pitches. Some of those pitches are of the found footage variety. Which way they go is still up in the air.
What do YOU think about the found Friday idea? Sound off in our comments section below. We can pretty much guarantee the powers-that-be WILL see it.
At the end of the day, we still don’t like the last Friday the 13th. If the sequels makers can bring back the missing elements from the last flick (likable characters, inventive kills, no captives), then they’ll be on to something and we’ll be happy. Oh, and bring back Derek Mears, damn it.
