News Has A New Director Been Found For The New ‘Friday the 13th’ Film? Published 3 years ago on August 8, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Looks like Jason Voorhees is set to make a return to the big screen. We can report that a new director has been found for the next installment in the Friday the 13th franchise. As previously reported, Aaron Guzikowski wrote a iteration for the project, and things are really starting to progress with another update on the film. Deadline is reporting 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 released sometimes in 2017, but not on the previously planned date of January 13th. Halloween would be the perfect date to release the film, which would be Friday, October 13th. As quoted by 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.” Are you excited? We are definitely looking forward to another Jason outing on the big screen.
