News ‘Halloween’ Producer Ryan Turek “Would Love” to Work on Next ‘Friday the 13th’ Movie Published 1 year ago on January 17, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet In a new interview with the folks over at ComicBook, Halloween producer Ryan Turek revealed that both he and Jason Blum want their shot at the next Friday the 13th movie. We won’t go into details about all the legal stuff surrounding Friday the 13th, but here’s what Turek had to say about his passion for the franchise. “Without question, at the top of my list would be Friday the 13th,” Turek said. “Friday the 13th would be the franchise that I would love to work on next. Jason Blum shares that same passion. That is something that is unfortunately complicated. I mean, there’s all sorts of stuff going on not [just] with the video game, but legal stuff. But, if it came our way, I mean I would be on cloud nine. It would be absolutely incredible to do. I feel a little bit smoother, because, I think there are only a few promises you’d need to make when it comes to Friday the 13th. That’s, you know, you gotta deliver on a summer camp. You gotta deliver on counselors. You gotta deliver on Jason Voorhees.” Turek speaks about the complicated journey of the Friday the 13th rights, and he believes that Blumhouse could do great things with the franchise. “I mean like I think that there’s a lot more mythology,” Turek said of Friday. “I think what’s so rabid about the Halloween franchise. There’s a rabid fan base behind it is because the mythology is so strong. Even though the mythology weaves in and out of different things, there are a lot more characters to grasp on to and root for, whether it’s little Jamie Lloyd, or Laurie Strode, or, and so on. With Friday the 13th, obviously Jason Voorhees is the main thing. I’ve written about this when I had my own website. I think Friday the 13th [from] 2009 is the best slasher mix tape we could ever get, when it comes to the Friday franchise. There’s a lot of opportunities to explore. If we ever had the chance it would probably be similar to Halloween. Get someone who can really disrupt it a little bit and have some fun. Yeah, Friday would be cool. I’ve always got a soft spot for Texas Chainsaw. Not that you need a soft spot for Texas Chainsaw. Texas Chainsaw is one of the f*****g scariest movies and one of the best horror movies of all time.” Obviously, another Friday the 13th movie would be a dream come true if Blumhouse can get their hands on the rights and bring Jason Voorhees back to the big screen. Let us know what you think down in the comments.
