News ‘Friday The 13th’ Reboot Delayed Again, New Release Date Set Published 4 years ago on September 23, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Entertainment Weekly recently reported that Paramount has pushed back the Friday the 13th reboot a further nine months, which is now set on Friday, October 13th, 2017. As we previously reported, the film was originally slated for a release on January 13, 2017. We just hope that the date is final and the film will move forward from here, Paramount will hopefully come through for the fans and keep their promise. Back in June, producer Brad Fuller had the following to say about the next Jason outing: “Origin isn’t really the right word for this movie,” said producer Brad Fuller. “The word origin got out and everyone’s calling it an origin film now, but that isn’t exactly the direction we’re taking. It’s more of an alternate world that we’re creating for Jason – an alternate space, alternate reality – in this film. Yes, Pamela and Jason are together in this film, but this is the same Jason we all know and love. He’s Jason; he kills – he kills teenagers. We went down the origin route with the second Texas Chainsaw Massacre film, and I think when you go to deep into a character’s origin, the character stops being scary at some point. I’m not worried about demystifying Jason by revealing parts of his back story, which most of the fans are familiar with.” “The story takes place between the late 1970s and the early 1980s,” he added. “There is a summer camp, and there are camp counselors.” Are you fans looking forward to the next installment in the Friday the 13th franchise?
