Since the ongoing lawsuit between original Friday the 13th scribe Victor Miller and the film’s director Sean Cunningham remains contentious, the future of the franchise is nebulous. Luckily, some truly skilled filmmakers have stepped in to fill the void with exceptional fan films. Last February, we reported that Friday the 13th Part 4 actor Corey Feldman (who played Tommy Jarvis) has signed on for 13 Fanboy, a tribute to Jason Voorhees that sounds like nothing we’ve seen before.
13 Fanboy is about a deranged killer who hunts down actresses who have appeared in past Friday the 13th movies, not realizing the franchise is pure fiction. Best of all, the cast is comprised almost completely by Friday the 13th Alumni. Though Feldman’s part is being described as a mere cameo, he’ll be joining the likes of Kane Hodder, Judie Aronson, Thom Mathews, and Deborah Voorhees (who is also directing the film)!
Today, we got the first trailer for 13 Fanboy! Give it a spin at the top of the article. Look for the film to be released sometime in 2020.
