News The ‘Friday the 13th’ Franchise Might Have More Problems Over Rights Published 3 years ago on August 25, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet More stressful news for the Friday the 13th Franchise. Sadly, it looks like Jason Voorhees might not make his return to the big screen as smoothly as we’d like. We just got word that another Friday the 13th issue has stalled its progress, and effecting a new film moving forward because of the franchise ownership rights. Screenwriter Victor Miller has filed for termination of his grant of rights, which means to reclaim ownership of the property effective July 2018 Apparently, the script was a work made for hire, Horror, Inc. and the Manny Company are both claiming this statement to be true, an idea created by director Sean S. Cunningham and written according to his intent. “Miller had never written a horror screenplay prior to his being hired by Cunningham and was guided in the process, and directly supervised, by Cunningham. Accordingly, Miller entered into an employment agreement with the Manny Company pursuant to which Miller wrote a screenplay for the Film as a work for hire (the ‘Screenplay’).” Just when things were looking very positive for the next Jason Voorhees adventure on the big screen, we are left in the dark for a second time. We hope this doesn’t effect the next instalment in the Friday the 13th franchise. If you would like to read the full complaint report, head over here.
