Brad Fuller Says Jason Will Be Unrelenting In The Next ‘Friday The 13th’ Film!

Jason Voorhees

The next Friday the 13th film has had its trouble as of late, but things are starting to pick up again. Jason Voorhees fans can now look forward to the release date of October 13, 2017.

Jason’s return could be handled by director Breck Eisner (The Crazies), who is in talks to take on the film, along with Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) writing the script.

Variety talked with both Fuller and Platinum Dunes producer Andrew Form, revealing quite a bit of information to the website. And yes, there will definitely be another Friday the 13th film.

Fuller had this to say:

“This is the 13th “Friday the 13th” and on some level that’s kind of magical that we are lucky enough to make the 13th “Friday the 13th” movie. The challenges are you don’t want to alienate the people that come to see the first 12 but at the same time you don’t want your audience who haven’t seen the first 12 to feel like I’ve missed out on all of this and I’m not coming to see the 13th film.”

Fuller continued:

“That’s where and why we were lucky enough to get Aaron Guzikowski, who is an amazing writer and who saw a way to bridge those two audiences and make a way a movie where if you haven’t seen a “Friday the 13th” movie you know exactly what is going on and if you have seen one, you are going to be smiling the whole way through because there are nods to everything that you know but it is not imperative that you know those things to enjoy the film. We have made plenty of Slasher movies and what excites us about this one is that our characters aren’t just meat for Jason to butcher. These are real characters which will hopefully make the bond with the audience that much stronger because you really care about the people in this film.”

Even more exciting stuff to hear:

“Form: But when its time for Jason to do his business…

Fuller:…He’s busy.

Form: He does it and we will not let anyone down because when it is time it’s..

Fuller: It’s unrelenting.”

The latest script will focus on the family members, including Pamela Voorhees, and also Jason’s father, Elijah. Stay tuned to Dark Universe for more Friday the 13th news as it happens.
