News Osgood Perkins Would Be Thrilled to Direct the Thirteenth ‘Friday the 13th’ Movie Published 4 months ago on January 29, 2020 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Osgood Perkins, director of The Blackcoat’s Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, recently stated that he would love to direct the thirteenth Friday the 13th movie. RELATED: PRODUCERS BRAD FULLER AND ANDREW FORM TALK ‘FRIDAY THE 13TH’ STATUS While speaking with the Boo Crew on the BD Podcast Network, Perkins revealed his interest in the Friday the 13th franchise: “I would’ve happily been the guy to do Friday the 13th again,” Perkins explained. “I would do that. I’d be thrilled to do that. That’s probably the one for me. I didn’t want to do Halloween, for instance. I felt like that had been done. Jason is my guy. Also, it’s the thirteenth one. Just call it ’13’ or something.” Perkins goes on to talk about Aaron Guzikowski‘s screenplay for Paramount Pictures’ Friday the 13th movie, which was cancelled just before filming began: “The screenplay that I read was written by the guy who wrote Prisoners,” he revealed. “And it was good. It was sort of a remake of the original, and that’s what I’d want to do. Kinda remake the original, with the mom, and the camp, and all the stuff. And put it in the period. Yeah. Maybe.” Would you like to see Perkins direct the next Friday the 13th movie if the copyright issues get sorted? Let us know your thoughts in our comments section below.
