Next Friday the 13th Film Scheduled For 2015

friday_march2013

The news you’ve been waiting for – Paramount’s new Friday the 13th film is a go.

A new Friday the 13th film is indeed coming.  And Paramount has confirmed this by locking in a release date of March 13, 2015.

Yes, that’s a Friday the 13th.  (The 13th also falls on a Friday in February and November of that year.)  And no, an official title has not been revealed (will it be Friday the 13th 2?  Friday the 13th: Part 2?  Friday the 13 with some sub-title attached?)

We learned in June that Warner Bros. relinquished the rights to the franchise and gave them back to Paramount.  The studio had five years to get a new entry in theaters before those rights reverted back to WB.

There are no further details other than that.  We know Platinum Dunes will be producing the film.  But there is no director and there are rumblings of the producers looking for a “found footage” approach.

    They need to make a Freddy vs Jason vs Michael Myers film. Freddy should be played by Robert Englund, and Myers character should be based off the original film from 1978, not the remake. This movie would be a boxoffice smash. This film should be made. Forget the found footage idea.

    • martyrs fan

      • dannycerati

        I like the idea a last chapter XI would be amazin^

  • jason fan

    please no remakes with the 13th film make it original as the bigigest fan I want something awesome,,

  • Mika Malone

    I think it’s cool that they’re considering such a big change for the 13th movie. However, found footage as a sub-genre is such a fad nowadays and I’m worried how the film will age over the years if they go that route. That’s not to say that it can’t turn out great, but I am hoping for a more traditional style of filming. The fans have been begging for a Jason movie with a snowy setting for years, and the 13th entry in the series could be the perfect opportunity to finally deliver. I would also like to see Derek Mears reprise the role of Jason, even if it’s not a continuation of the reboot, because he totally nailed the part. I hope it isn’t just another reboot though. Although the ending didn’t pack nearly as much of a punch as the opening did, the 2009 effort was pretty great overall and full of homages. I’d like to see that Jason’s world given the chance to be fleshed out some more before they just give up on it.

  • RAM Ninjalo

    The remake was great & all, but I wanna see 12th entry to the original saga. Something either picking up after Freddy vs. Jason or after Jason X. PLEASE!!!!

  • caesar187

    I say bring back Trish, Ginny, Chris( part3), Tina(part 7) and Meeghan(part6) to have like a survivors reunion at the lake, mix tommy in there somehow, but with a twist or surprise but a survivors reunion would be tight, they all lost someone close to them thanks to jason…tina and trish lost a mom, meeghan lost her dad, chris lost her best friend and boyfriend, and ginny lost paul..maybe hollywood would say they are too old now but i think it would be tight!

  • jacko

    As a fan I actually wrote out a very amature screen play entitled, “Jason King Of The Undead.”
    The whole premise was the victims of Jason rise up from their shallow graves and seek revenge on the masked killer. It was good,campy,and very fun with a huge surprise ending.

    • Jason Jericho

      whats the ending?

      • jacko

        Well in the first draft the zombies,(former victims of Jason) have a huge ending battle with Jason. Very gory and all the that fun stuff,but it ended with Jason being overcome by the zombies and they in turn devour his flesh,along with what remains of his dead mothers head. All seems fairly well in the end,yes their are still zombies but the most dangerous one of them all has finally been killed.

        We end with one of the zombies picking up Jason’s mask and placing it over their own face. We then hear the voice of Mrs.Voorhees echoing throughout the minds of all the zombies. Basically,(to make it as short as I can) as a result of eating Jason’s flesh and that of his dead mothers head,the remaining zombie’s are linked as a “hive” mind. Thus they not only now inherit Jason’s memories but his unstoppable strength as well and we are left to believe the humans are in even worse shape now dealing with a horde of Jason’s rather than just the single,original Jason Voorhee’s.

        I think the ending is controversial but was different and left a “oh crap feeling” as well for the reader.

        • Jason Jericho

          I think thats awesome. You should copyright it. Peace.

          • wobblybob

            Segue into the walking dead…

          • jacko

            Thanks.

        • Ken

          That sounds like shit!

          • jacko

            Thanks too

  • VoorheesFamilyValues

    I liked the approach of the reboot making Jason a leaner faster killing machine but Jason does not take prisoners…that spoiled the film…plus he got his Hockey mask from Sheldon in part 3 not from some hillbilly so no need to rewrite history. Just let him kill and let one girl get away at the end. Duh!

    • jason fan

      his name was shelly not shelodon

  • dre

    I’d say go for it Myers vs voorhees that will be nice with Freddy causing havoc!!!

  • dre

    Job zombies Michael Myers vs Jason

    • human centipede

      lame idea snore.. and his name is rob not job lol

  • The Dude

    I’m glad Paramount has the rights again. Just seeing that old mountain logo might be a sign that they won’t make this a total travesty. P.S. the found footage is a terrible idea.

    FRIDAY THE 13TH “JARVIS LIVES”

  • jasonlives

    Found footage idea is stupid. Go in any direction with it. Just not that one

  • brad dunnermann

    Friday the 13th has a great legacy. I love the series. Now I wonder what is next

    • brad dunnermann

      Does anyone agree?

  • brad dunnermann

    Jason can b improved. Sort of old school. Would b awesome

    • brad dunnermann

      Everybody knows new Jason sucked

  • brad dunnermann

    Stick w the Gore, obviously!!!

  • Jody Jasani

    I hope Kane Hodder plays Jason in this one. Kane was the best Jason that played the role and nobody has ever topped his character. Does anyone know who is playing Jason in the upcoming Friday the 13th?

  • Psilocybin Rain

    No disrespect to the other guys who’ve donned the mask over the years. But for the love of god bring back Kane Hodder……

    • nigga

      Mears > Hodder

  • Caleb C.

    I love the friday the 13th movies about the ionic character jason voorhees but no mater what happens with this new movie coming, it will not be the same as the others before it and with that being said i could c any factor being added to this new movie just for Paramount pics to try and get an unexplained audience and make a few bucks.

  • Gore Fan

    Rob Zombie needs to help make this movie like he did with The Devils Rejects

  • virtuafighter

    Corey Feldman who starred in Friday the 13th: the Final Chapter (1984) will likely star in this new Friday the 13th film. I also want Jensen Daggett who starred in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) to appear in this film since was was my favorite of all the actresses starred in Friday the 13th films. Then we need Sean S Cunningham (who directed part 1), Steve Miner (who directed part 2 & 3) or Rob Heddon (who directed Jason take Manhattan) to get involved to direct the new film. I’m so glad warner bros. gave the rights back to Paramount. It was Paramount the company themselves who approached New Line Cinema on Freddy Vs Jason crossover. Now I hope John Carpenter will do a crossover of Michael Myers with Pinhead from Hellraiser which will be awesome.

  • dannycerati

    I would like the last chapter XI . the remakes bullshit.

  • Sethro

    To me this new movie needs to get the “feel” back that the older movies had. I like all the newer movies but the “feel” went away after part 7. The score of coarse has as much to do with it as anything. Part 4 was the perfect Friday the 13th because Jason was hardcore and gruesome and the score was pretty awesome. Even part 5 was better than the newer ones because it had the feel. Kane Hodder was a good Jason but he only fits the dead slow zombie Jason.

  • http://www.allgames4you.x10.mx/ Knowledge Power

    Jason is so awesome, i like those sorts of characters…..No wonder Kane was always my favourite in WWF, exactly like this Jason guy (until they ruined him).

  • Merica420

    I don’t like the found footage idea for this series. It can work well for some movies, but it doesn’t make sense for Friday the 13th. I mean first of all mostly everyone runs when Jason pops up so wouldn’t that mean we’d see a lot of the ground and not so much Jason? What about if the camera used for “found footage” isn’t near half the kills? Since they usually get separated in the movies. I believe this would kill the series, and with creativity diminishing in movies, tv, and music this generation we don’t need a legend to die out alongside them.

  • Caleb C.

    I think it might be kinda cool if the new movie could be based off the ending to jason x when jason played as kane hodder was all beefed up however it would kinda tricky to pull off and still make the movie good

  • Guest

    It’s good to see others hoping to see the return of Corey Feldman to reprise his role as Tommy Jarvis on these forums, because personally I couldn’t agree more. This would be perfect for the franchise: providing a legitimate element of suspense (for real fans) by having the solo returning survivor back on the big screen, played by Feldman to take on Jason again. This could also provide closure for what happened/didn’t happen to Tommy’s family, especially Trish (Kimberly Beck) could possibly play a factor? Seeing her return is a stretch but her character or even some quick dialogue on the matter would be interesting. Also, I would rather see Feldman vs. Jason than any other “Vs” situation….

  • Ken

    Nobody wants to see a found footage scenario. Don’t ruin Jason’s legacy with that crap.

  • Raph

    I think Jason is kinda scary but he is cool!!!!:)
