It’s been a couple years since I’ve sat down with the Friday the 13th reboot. I remember liking it when it first hit theaters, but that was a while ago.
Producers have been toying with the idea of making another one, with word going around that it would be a found footage sequel.
Apparently enough of the die-hard fans pissed and moaned about it, resulting in an official statement not only confirming that it will not be found footage, but also confirming that it will indeed a be another remake/reboot.
Check out the following quotes:
Listen, there was an outpouring of negative sentiment when it was revealed that Friday the 13th might have been a found footage movie. That was very clear to us that there was not a groundswell of support for that. That had tremendous amount of impact on us and only substantiated our concern about doing it as a found footage movie. Ultimately, the fact that the movie’s been delayed for a long time might be a good thing, because now the movie’s not going to be found footage.
it’s not a sequel to the 2009 version. Different characters, time period, style.
So now we know what it will and will not be, while also not knowing much of anything else about it. I’d love for a Friday the 13th film to take place in the winter, with a snowy setting or even a period piece that goes back beyond the 1980s, which is when everyone thinks this new film will take place.
What about you?
