News Platinum Dunes Producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form Talk ‘Friday the 13th’ Status Published 2 years ago on March 23, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew give an update on the future of the franchise and the abandoned Friday the 13th sequel. Dark Universe learned today that Eric Walkuski, one of Arrow in the Head‘s writers, had the opportunity to chat with Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form on the status of the Friday the 13th franchise. Fuller expresses his disappointment after the planned sequel was cancelled: “One of the biggest heartbreaks of the last couple years was that we were about to make that movie and it fell apart. That still hurts. The fans reach out to us; Andrew doesn’t really engage because he’s not on Twitter, but I am and I hear from the fans and that’s all they ask about. We get asked about that more than anything else.” “Fans think it’s so simple, that if we want to make the movie we can go make it, and that’s just not the case. There are rights issues; originally, Warner Bros. owned the rights, then Paramount had them for a couple of years, and now I think the rights are reverting back to Warner Bros. At the same time, there’s this on-going lawsuit with Victor Miller. If there’s a lawsuit hanging over the rights, it’s problematic, you can’t really make the movie until that gets settled. And now the movie is at New Line, and we’ve made a lot of movies with those guys, but that’s not our home studio anymore.” “So the question is, do they want to make the movie with us? If they want to make that movie with us, we will drop what we’re doing to make that movie. We had such a great experience making Friday the 13th, it was a dream come true to watch those movies as a kid and then be a part of it. So I don’t really have a clear answer.” Form on the abandoned Friday the 13th sequel: “That one still hurts every day. We were a couple of weeks from filming on that one, Guzikowski wrote an unbelievable script, we found the camp… That one still hurts.” It’s got to be very upsetting for Friday the 13th fans to except that the franchise still remains dead. if we hear anything new regarding the sequel, you can count on Dark Universe to keep you updated.
