New FRIDAY THE 13TH Movie Is Going Back to Camp, May Explore Why Jason Doesn’t Die


It’s fitting (and not entirely coincidental) that today of all days, details about the new Friday the 13th movie have arrived. We’ve been promised a new installment in the franchise a few times now, as a follow-up to the 2009 reboot was first given an August 13, 2010 release date before being pushed back and re-assessed a number of times. Most recently, Paramount pushed the new Friday the 13th movie to May 2016, where it will now (hopefully) land.

So why the delay? And what happened to the initial 2010-set sequel to Marcus Nispel’s successful reboot? In a new interview with Esquire, producer Brad Fuller shed some light on the Friday the 13th franchise and its future, revealing that there’s one big reason why the sequel didn’t move forward as planned: Paranormal Activity. Despite the box office success of the 2009 reboot, the low-budget horror hit Paranormal Activity spurred studios to rethink their approach to genre material, and the allure of a $1-$2 million budget against a potential gross of $100 million was impossible for them to pass up. As a result, the Friday the 13th sequel was put on the backburner.

friday-the-13thBut now, after teaming up with Paranormal Activity producer Jason Blum on two very successful The Purge films, learning how to execute a horror film on a budget less than $20 million, Fuller is determined to get the cameras rolling on the new Friday the 13th movie this year. The plan is to start production at the end of the summer, when the weather is nice and it’s easy for the team to take over a camp to set up production.

Oh yes, the next Friday the 13th movie is going back to camp. Fuller says the core values of the franchise will remain intact, as the next film will involve Jason Voorhees, kids having sex and smoking weed, and will take place at camp. Moreover, just because the current trend is to make horror films for tiny budgets, Fuller intends to find a middle ground for the new Friday the 13th, somewhere between the 2009 reboot’s $20 million and The Purge films’ $2-3 million:

“You can’t do a great kill quickly. It takes time and the blood levels. You know, every time there’s a drop of blood you have to change their wardrobe and shower people off. You can’t rush that to get it right.”
friday-the-13th-rebootWhile the writers of the 2009 film penned a script for a sequel that reportedly returned to a fully functional Camp Crystal Lake (more details on that take here), Fuller says the new film will depart from those ideas. They haven’t yet decided whether the new Friday the 13th movie will tie back into the 2009 version, but he’s settling on a final direction now and narrowing it down to “two or three different” writers that they hope to hire in the next few weeks.

While the story isn’t pinned down just yet, Fuller and director David Bruckner—who helmed The Signal and a segment of V/H/S and is onboard to direct this new Friday the 13th—are toying with a major question central to the franchise: why does Jason not die?

“There’s always been this supernatural aspect to these movies. It defies logic that, you see Jason get killed in every movie, including ours, the 2009 one. And then he comes back and no one’s ever really investigated what that is. So that’s something that I think about a little bit. Like it is supernatural, but what is he? Those are the things that we’re toying with. Nothing has been decided. But those type of things: How does he always come back?”
That’s a fascinating angle that hasn’t yet been explored in this extensive franchise, and one that will hopefully lead to a fresh and exciting film. While we’ve now been waiting 6 years for a new Friday the 13th movie, it feels like things are finally crystallizing. Maybe we will, in fact, be revisiting Jason next May after all. Or, rather, Jason will be revisiting us.

While I love the series, And I like Blonkamp's stuff, I can't help but feel a bit skeptical of this.

Steven Spielberg Hopes To Direct Chris Pratt In Indiana Jones Reboot

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s a good one to chew on as we head off to the pre-Oscar parties. Last month, I reported that Steven Spielberg wants Chris Pratt to anchor the rebirth of Indiana Jones that is being developed at Disney. It’s very early days, but my sources tell me that, assuming a script comes in to his satisfaction, Spielberg hopes to direct that film. He directed the first four with Harrison Ford as the swashbuckling archaeologist.

im fine with the russos doing this but hate the idea of tatum being involved chris pratt however i can see do justice



MALE-DRIVEN GHOSTBUSTERS WITH CHANNING TATUM & RUSSO BROS. BEING DEVELOPED


in addition to the all-female Ghostbusters, Sony is also developing a male-driven Ghostbusters movie.

Deadline reports Anthony and Joe Russo, who just signed a first-look deal with Sony, look to be attached to direct and produce the new male Ghostbusters movie, with Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce penning the script.

Channing Tatum is also set to be onboard as a producer, with it likely that Tatum will star as one of the new Ghostbusters as well (recently leaked Sony e-mails revealed Tatum was interested in Ghostbusters along with Chris Pratt).

It's further reported that Sony has plans to expand the Ghostbusters franchise as a "Ghostcorps" - a new production company - is being formed to oversee the franchise, which will have original director Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd involved (more than likely Aykroyd will be featured in the new Ghostbusters).

The female Ghostbusters movie will launch July 2016 and marks the start of the new franchise from director Paul Feig starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Leslie Jones.

“We want to expand the Ghostbusters universe in ways that will include different films, TV shows, merchandise, all things that are part of modern filmed entertainment,” Reitman said. “This is a branded entertainment, a scary supernatural premise mixed with comedy. Paul Feig’s film will be the first version of that, shooting in June to come out in July 2016. He’s got four of the funniest women in the world, and there will be other surprises to come. The second film has a wonderful idea that builds on that. Drew will start writing and the hope is to be ready for the Russo Brothers’ next window next summer to shoot, with the movie coming out the following year. It’s just the beginning of what I hope will be a lot of wonderful movies.”

I'm just scratching my head at this. I mean, I enjoyed the movie Ghostbusters, but I never, ever saw it as something that would become a franchise with multiple teams starring in different movies. Rebooting/remaking/whatever-ing it in the first place seemed kind of unecessary to me, but expanding it like this, too? Like I said, I'm just scratching my head.

becoming a corps isnt such a bad idea honestly expecially with the russos doing it. i prefer they go the horror route because i think that can be something fantastic if done right

I've said it elsewhere and I'll say it here: why does Ghostbusters have to be gender-specific? If you're gonna remake Ghostbusters, just go all-out and remake Ghostbusters and call it "Ghostbusters."

As a fan of this franchise I should be excited but I'm not. This idea sounds just as terrible as the female Ghostbusters reboot. It's like Sony's apologizing for doing a female GB movie with this announcement. People wonder why Bill Murray wants nothing to do with GB anymore. Sony's doing the same thing they did with the canceled The Amazing Spider-Man movie spin-offs. The GB franchise should be left alone. It's been almost 26 years since the last movie and they waited too long to make another one. GB 3 has been dead for so long that I think fans have moved on. This idea could have possibly worked in the lates 1980s and 1990s when it was very popular because GB had 2 cartoon spin-offs, 1 sequel, and a few comic books series.

It seems like Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd have gotten over the death of Harold Ramis and now want to capitalize on what Disney's doing with their Marvel Cinematic Universe and Lucasfilm properties. It also sounds like Aykroyd will be going back to the crazy ideas he wrote for the original GB film before Reitman and Ramis came on board to heavily change it. I don't think this GB universe will work without Bill Murray or Harold Ramis (RIP).

I think this is a bad idea and Ghostbusters should be laid to rest. It had it's time and Sony should move on and do something original. Also I like Chris Pratt in GotG but he's spreading himself thin with these franchises. I'm not happy about his involvement in this or the Indiana Jones reboot(another franchise that should be left alone). Don't get me started on Channing Tatum. The Russo Brothers I like more than Paul Feig but I rather see them continue with Marvel Studios/Disney and do something that's not GB at Sony. That's just my 2 cents.

Yeah, that was my perception as well. Announcing this before the female one even hits theaters? Coming after some of the criticism it has suffered, this SOUNDS like a lack of faith in the first movie, and some bet hedging going on.

I'll still see it, though it will probably be on Netflix. If Sandler wasn't in it, I'd have a better chance of seeing it in theaters.

mmm i dont know i mean the russos proved what they can do with captain america so im going to wait before i start hating on it

as i said many times move away from the comedy route and do a pg-13ish horror gb that way they dont have to worry about finding who can fill ramis and murrys shoes

and i have to say for the female version they shouldve gotten the chick who plays felicity because at least shes believable when it comes to computer science. other than her who else can really fit that particular role?

If you move away from the comedy route, in what way is it still recognizably "Ghostbusters"?

"Hey, let's make a movie that really isn't much like Ghostbusters, but still call it Ghostbusters! That way we can bring in people with brand recognition! Sure, anybody that was brought in that way will not be getting what they expect, and will probably be unpleasantly surprised, but hey, we spent the money on the license already, right?"

but if you focus all on comedy and not horror how can it be ghostbusters? i believe it falls under the comedy/horror category

i mean lets face it its a mix of both and maybe im a new breed when it comes to comedy but i just cant see a reboot working like that with todays comedians. i just dont want it to become a 2 hour film on fart jokes and god awful bathroom humor

i just cant

Who said anything about focusing all on comedy? You were the one talking about moving AWAY from the comedy and just making it a PG-13 horror flick. THAT was what I was responding to.

No; the episode I'm referencing, "Anthology of Interest II," originally aired January 6, 2002. The short film I'm seeing Pixels is based on was released in 2010.

That is probably my favorite of the short stories (and a favorite moments of the show period). "I had another life."

It is a very good short. I understand why it's being emulated, it's funny and appeals to pop culture both new and old.
