News Could ‘Friday the 13th’ Start Filming As Early As Six Months? Published 2 years ago on August 9, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Yesterday, it was reported that Breck Eisner is currently in talks to direct the next Friday the 13th franchise film, replacing original director David Bruckner. Whether Eisner directs it or not, it now appears that this new film will need to begin production by the end of January 2017. The California state film commission have recently confirmed a couple of new movies that have been picked to recive tax credits as part of California’s Film & Television Tax Credit Program. One of the choices was indeed Friday the 13th, which will be receiving a $5.6 million credit. Now, this is the catch: The program offers tax credits up to 25% of a project’s budget, which means there are many conditions the project will need to implement to be eligible for the credit, and according to Variety one of those conditions is that it must begin filming within six months of being chosen. Since the announcement was made on August 2nd, that would mean that a new Friday The 13th needs to be filming by January 29th. I guess it’s a game of wait and see. We will keep you posted as more news brakes.
