Friday the 13th

Just when you thought they couldn't pack 2015 (see here) with any more excitement, hype, sequels, restarts and reboots, Hollywood decides to toss another log on the fire. Word is Paramount, after getting their hands on the rights, is developing a brand new Friday the 13th movie. But this won't actually be a sequel to the 2009 remake directed by Marcus Nispel, instead it will be yet another new reboot of the Jason Voorhees horror franchise that first began back in 1980. Earlier in the year, we wrote about Warner Bros sharing the rights with Paramount, which has eventually lead to this latest reboot/iteration coming together. Read on!

Here's the full tweet direct from @ERCboxoffice with some very basic details on the new Friday the 13th:

As expected, the new release date is on Friday the 13th in March of 2015. That should give them more than enough time to find a (good) director, find a cast and shoot this thing sometime next year. For a while we were covering news of a rumored sequel to the 2009 reboot that was going to be set in the snow. The latest Friday the 13th movie fared well at the box office, earning $65 million in February of 2009. The sequel to that movie was declared dead back in 2010 and we've been waiting for any updates since. Will they bring back Derek Mears as Jason Voorhees or start from scratch all over again? How much are they planning to reboot? There are still many questions to be answered, but Jason will be back to kill more campers again.

    nobody watches these anymore. wtf is the point of trying to continue these movies?!?!
    • Guest
      65 million at the box office suggests otherwise. Maybe you'll learn numbers next year in second grade.

        One: that's not very nice. Two: 65 million dollars is not what it use to be.
        • Mike P.
          It's still a large profit, regardless of inflation, and especially on a lower budget. And that's just box office profits alone.
          • http://www.roamandthink.com/ Quanah
            The budget for the original was $550,000. The budget for the 2009 version was $19 million. Is 550,000 1980 dollars equate 19 million in 2009 dollars? No. Not according to the inflation calculator. Not even close. But that really isn't the point. The point I was making was this: it isn't necessary to be unkind and insulting on the internet. Also, no matter how you spin it, $65 million to a movie studio on a $19 million budget isn't a lot of money. Now, I'm not saying they should not make another movie, I'm pointing out a terrible argument by a rather rude poster. Moving on.

            Okay man, you got it. I wasn't commenting on that persom being rude so I'm not sure why you're bringing that up to me. I was talking about your comment on profit. And regardless of how youbspin it, it's profit, and whether you think platinum dunes was looking for $100 million in profit or not, I'm sure they were happy with over $40 million box office profit. Moving on, though, sure.

            Im glad some people still have a sense of humility on these posts. Some people are quick to post hate-comments.
      • Such heroic nonsense
        hahahaa Iron man 3 broke box office records. do you think anyone will ever watch that twice?!?! And second, in what way did my comment insinuate i not having any education in numbers?! Do us all a favor and just dont comment anything at all, EVER. Im sure its hard enough getting through life making yourself look like an idiot and a douche on a daily basis, i dont think you need that feeling to be compounded from others by coming on here and posting your douche-filled thoughts.
    • Mike P.
      A lot of people still watch these movies.
  • Dingo
    Awesome...love these movies
  • OfficialJab
    Fine with me. Honestly they should just keep making reboots as long as they all do things a little differently. Better than increasingly stupid sequels - and then more directors and crews can try their hand at changing it up.
    • Mike P.
      That's what I was thinking. Does it matter that it's a reboot? The original "series" had the thin veil of a connecting storyline, but I'm sure 98% of the audience came to see Jason killing people in ridiculous ways and not to see how the story ties together with the previous entries. More Friday the 13th is more fun. Can't wait. These films are a blast at midnight.

    As long as mbay stays away! Then hell yeah!
    • Tye
      I know, right. Micheal Bay bound to have jason stuff up .
  • Charlie Hard
    I'm just hoping it's not some found footage crap like they were planning earlier to do with the franchise. I think people are really holding their breath too much on the chance with this movie being any great. Bring in a good horror director and a descent cast and I might get excited for this.
  • cobrazombie
    LOL!
  • John
    You. Gotta. Be. Kidding. Me.
  • Travis Sparks
    They should bring back Kane Hodder as Jason. He's the only actor to ever play the role more than once, and he's AWESOME!
  • fitnfab
    Just fucking stop it already with the god damn remakes. No one wants to see the story being retold! We want a continuation from jason x only better and on planet earth!!
    • Rework Oh Ryan
      I'd prefer they start over from Jason takes Manhattan, and ignore 9 & 10
  • Oskar RT
    Yep, why???
  • Michael Tryon
    It needs to be a real Jason takes Manhattan, where he shows up there early in the movie (not 2/3 of the way through, and only seeing Times Square), He could be slaughtering people by the truckload, and then show his super-zombie side by having the NYPD not be able to kill him with craploads of puny small-arms fire. They have to nuke him from orbit: it's the only way to be sure.
  • jacob
    it should be a true telling of the origin of jason and his mom similair to zombies holloween reboot then folding in to the original movie with his mom as the killer but changed up that would set things up nicely for a part 2
  • Anthony Caputa
    I don't understand why they don't just pick up where they left off after the last reboot. That movie was awesome. Or hell, make another sequel to the original series, picking up right after Freddy vs. Jason. ANOTHER Reboot? I'll probably skip this like I did with Spider Man. Shits getting ridiculous. Pretty soon we'll have a new reboot every year.
