Friday the 13th

There was supposed to be a new Friday the 13th film this year that would have coincided with the 35th anniversary of the original film, but Paramount Pictures pushed it back to May 13th, 2016, which is thankfully still an actual Friday on the 13th of the month. And now that the studio has time to get the project in order, THR says they're starting with a new draft of the script that will come from "Hannibal" TV series scribe Nick Antosca. Considering how creepy the show has been, even with the parameters of network television, this is a smart move by Paramount, one that could bring some fresh life to the series.

The 2009 reboot of the franchise wasn't awful, mainly because it had some solid suspense and good kills, but it still lacked the punch the first few films in the series had. Hopefully the original draft worked on by Richard Naing and Ian Goldberg gives Antosca something to work with, and he can hand it over to V/H/S director David Bruckner to turn into a decent flick. However, there have been rumblings that the new Friday the 13th is aiming to explain why Jason Vorhees just can't be killed, and that sounds stupid. Anyway, we've got over a year before we see this one hit theaters, so stay tuned for more details.

That'll be funtimes. Hannibal was super miserable, but visually great.

It has been over 6 years since the last film, and the last film he was in was another 6 years before that.

Friday the 13th is absolutely trash. I get why people love it but it's real trash and I feel bad for the character of Jason Vorhees because it could've been done more badass but it was just missing a lot of umph.

I don't think the script is exactly the key element.

Just make it scary and fun to watch, please. Is that so fucking hard to do? Yeah? Filmmaking is hard? Whatever. Fuck off.
