Full plot for Friday the 13th: Part 13 revealed!

The FRIDAY THE 13TH saga has been one cursed fuc*ing production since we last saw the hockey-masked hooligan take out teens way back in 2009. Marcus Nispel's remake was a joy to behold and I was all geared-up to see many more outings with the new Derek Mears Jason. But that didn't happen. So the guys over at Platinum Dunes turned their attention to a script by...

Friday the 13th and World War Z sequel pulled from Paramount's schedule

Here. We. Go. Again. I'll get right to it: Paramount Pictures has pulled the untitled WORLD WAR Z sequel and the FRIDAY THE 13th reboot from their 2017 release schedule. The former was a no-brainer: That film has held a June 9 date for a while now, but it doesn't even have a director, script, cast, etc., so I don't think anyone was expecting it to miraculously arrive at that...

Mark Wahlberg's Home Invasion gets Expendables 3 director

The upcoming Mark Wahlberg flick  HOME INVASION sounds like a killer thriller, and now it has a director to usher it home. Attached to helm the project is Patrick Hughes, who first hit the scene in 2010 with the Ryan Kwanten Western RED HILL, which stirred up enough buzz for him to helm the gargantuan Hollywood action flick THE EXPENDABLES 3. I can't say I've seen...

Will the new Friday the 13th finally introduce Jason's father?

When we reported yesterday that Aaron Guzikowski's script for the new FRIDAY THE 13TH would contain an origin story for the hockey masked serial killer Jason Voorhees, it was met with quite a bit of fan ire, including my own. However, hardcore Jasonheads might be changing their tune with this latest development. According to Birth Movies Death's Devin Faraci , a source...

Friday the 13th is aiming for a summer production date

The delay between 2009's remake and the new incarnation of FRIDAY THE 13TH isn't quite the longest gap in the franchise (unlucky fans had to wait nine years between JASON GOES TO HELL and JASON X ), but it's slowly approaching it. However, if they stick to their current tentative timetable, we'll soon be delivered from all this frustrating nonsense. Our...

The new Friday the 13th movie will take us back in time

The new FRIDAY THE 13TH has been through as many lives and deaths as Jason Voorhees himself, recently dropping director David Bruckner and writer Nick Antosca, replacing the latter with PRISONERS scribe Aaron Guzikowski.

Yesterday came the news - encouraging or discouraging, depending on your POV - that the new FRIDAY THE 13th film had brought on PRISONERS scripter Aaron Guzikowski to pen a fresh draft for the film, signaling another delay in Jason's return to the big screen. (Hannibal writer Nick Antosca was working on the last screenplay.) It seems fitting, then, to report that the film is starting from...
