Rumors have been stirring for some time now regarding a sequel to the remake of Friday the 13th, but Paramount has officially laid claim to a release date, taking the first Friday the 13th spot of 2015, with the film opening in theaters March 13, 2015.
The 2009 Friday the 13th remake, directed by Marcus Nispel, made $90M worldwide despite any and all shortcomings. In it, a group of young adults discover a boarded up Camp Crystal Lake, where they soon encounter Jason Voorhees and his deadly intentions.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Platinum Dunes is still producing for Paramount Pictures. Counting Freddy vs. Jason, this would be the 13th entry in the storied franchise, and rumors abound that Paramount is considering making it a found footage film. Let’s hope those rumors don’t come to pass.
At the end of the day, we here around DC (except for Buz) still don’t like the last Friday the 13th. If the sequel’s 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.
