According to THR, New Line Cinema has just picked up the rights to a secret horror pitch from 2009's FRIDAY THE 13TH writers Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. The site says, "No details of the pitch are being revealed, but it is described as a potential franchise starter. It is not part of the micro-budget and found-footage trend.” Well that certainly doesn't tell us a whole lot but it's enough to make us curious! Hopefully we'll be able to shed more light on this project in the near future — nobody likes a secret! Chris Bender, J.C. Spink and Jake Weiner of New Line-based BenderSpink are producing.
That's all for now on this little mystery horror project that New Line has cooking up but we'll be sure to keep you folks in the loop as things move along.
