Big Changes Are Made For The New FRIDAY THE 13TH Film - Details Within!

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

The news of another FRIDAY THE 13TH movie has been going on since the release of the 2009 reboot. The release date has changed a few times, and the changes continue as the film will no longer be released on May 13, 2016. According to B-D the movie's release has been pushed back until sometime in 2017. The site also claims that there are rumblings about abandoning the 1980's setting.

Back in March we learned that writer/co-producer of the HANNIBAL TV series Nick Antosca had been brought on board. He was given the task of creating a fresh draft for the upcoming FRIDAY THE 13TH movie by way of Paramount and Platinum Dunes. He turned in his finished draft back in July and we now bring you an update on that.

B-D reports that Paramount is now taking fresh pitches from writers for the new FRIDAY THE 13TH film. This would indicate that the studio is most likely no longer going with Antosca's ideas.

This isn't the first script to have been brought forth for the project as the previous draft was penned by Richard Naing and Ian Goldberg.

Back in February, Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes made mention that he has hopes for expanding the mythology of Jason and wanting to bring things back to summer camp.

There is currently no word if director David Bruckner is still on board at this point but we will continue to keep you updated on all things FRIDAY THE 13TH as we hear it.
