News ‘Friday the 13th’ Shooting Date and Filming Location Confirmed Published 4 years ago on October 26, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet He’s already took Manhattan, but now Jason Voorhees will take Atlanta! That’s right folks, the next Friday the 13th film has locked in its filming location and casting dates. In an interview with Collider, Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form opened up with some major details about the production process and their schedule. We can now tell you that casting will start in December, with shooting to start in Atlanta in early Spring. “In terms of fun, making [the 2009 film] was so fun. The cast was great, we were in a great setting, everyone got along. We had a lot of fun making that movie and we always wanted to go back to Crystal Lake and make another one. There were so many obstacles to surmount to get to where we are today. I’m not going to bore you with all of them but for a long time, there was a rights issue between Paramount and Warner Bros. Then there was an execution issue. At one point, the studio wanted us to make a found-footage version of that movie and that was deeply concerning to us because we didn’t think we could execute the movie in the right way if it was a found-footage movie. No, Jason is a POV movie. So, it was very hard to wrap our head around how you would do a Friday the 13th that was found footage, knowing that we really need the Jason perspective of watching. We didn’t want to break the DNA of that. We also battled: do we do a sequel to the original? Do we pick up where we left off with Jared and Amanda at the end of the movie? Somehow, that didn’t find a home. So, it’s been eight years. It will be eight years since we made the last one. I’m here to say that we found the location. We have found the lake, we have found the camp. We found an amazing script by Aaron Guzikowski. Breck Eisner is directing the movie. That movie is shooting in early Spring.” It’s all started to come together, finally. The project looks to be in a very good position, with its new casting and shooting/location dates confirmed.
