Friday The 13th Reboot Delayed Again, New Release Date Set

Looks like Jason Voorhees is set to make a return to the big screen. We can now reveal that a new director has reportedly been found for the next installment in the Friday the 13th franchise. As previously stated, Aaron Guzikowski wrote a iteration for the project, and things are really starting to make progress with yet another update on the film.

Deadline reports today that Breck Eisner is currently in talks to direct the next Friday the 13th franchise film, replacing original director David Bruckner. We have also heard that the new film is expected to be unleashed some time in 2017, but not on the previously planned release date of Friday, January 13th. We will keep you posted on that.

Here’s the last from the film’s Producer Brad Fuller:

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.”
