As we all know good and well, Blumhouse, like every other production entity in the universe, wants their hands on the Friday the 13th franchise.
And today, Blumhouse head honcho, Jason Blum confirms he’d still love to have the chance to make a new Jason movie one of these days.
Blum tells Fandom: “I would love to do it and it’s very complicated, but I hope someday. How about that? It’s not the answer I want to hear because I wish it was right away, but it isn’t.”
The original film followed this synopsis: Crystal Lake’s history of murder doesn’t deter counselors from setting up a summer camp in the woodsy area. Superstitious locals warn against it, but the fresh-faced young people pay little heed to the old-timers. Then they find themselves stalked by a brutal killer. As they’re slashed, shot and stabbed, the counselors struggle to stay alive against a merciless opponent.
It sports a 63% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Rather quaint by today’s standards, Friday the 13th still has its share of bloody surprises and a ’70s-holdover aesthetic to slightly compel.
