Brad Fuller confirms new Friday the 13th will not be found footage

05.18.2015

For the last two years, we have heard lots of crazy stories about the next FRIDAY THE 13TH. Some had no Jason while others claimed the movie would be found footage. All rumors have pissed off fans who are looking for a solid slasher movie unlike we have seen in years. Now there is at least one silver lining for this sequel.

Producer Brad Fuller has revealed to Shock Till You Drop that based on the fan outcry to the found footage approach, Platinum Dunes has dropped plans to use the format.

“I could just say that for a long time we were stalled,” Fuller tells Shock. “I think you guys reported that the movie was going to be a found footage movie and that was a road that we went down and tried to figure out. Ultimately, I think Michael, Drew and I felt that we couldn’t figure that out, so we kind of jettisoned that whole notion and we had to start over. We’re in the latter phases of that starting over and hopefully we’re getting a script in the next month or two, and we’ll go back to Crystal Lake.”

Fuller went on to say that the plans for the new FRIDAY THE 13TH are to take the presence of Jason Voorhees and do something new with him. While Fuller did say they are returning to Crystal Lake, the movie will not be found footage, and will have Jason, I am not sure how it will vary much from the last ten takes on the character. But, if the movie can improve on the 2009 reboot, I may be willing to give it a shot.

FRIDAY THE 13TH is slated to hit theaters on May 13, 2016.

GOOD! Found footage films suck. How about some clean and clear as day shots of Jason standing in the trees in the middle of the afternoon. That is way more unnerving than choppy, can't really tell what is happening, too dark shots you get with found footage. The formula is simple: Teenagers drink , fuck, and get killed in violent and gory ways that is all you need.

Considering this is THE 13th film of the franchsie, I really hope they give us Jason fans something really special and memorable. These films aren't rocket science; just give us a good story with some smart characters that we can root for with some creative kills.

And thank God this isn't going to be a found footage film. This franchise doesn't need that crap.

My all time fantasy Jason film is to have literally Jason from Friday the 13th Part 2 to Part 12 in one film and let them hunt down campgoers.

Some smart characters we can root for. Huh? Screw that, I have always rooted for Jason. And it is kind of hard to give us a good story after 13 films, it will always be the same. Teenagers drink, fuck, and then get killed, and I am OK with that simplicity.

The F13 remake was pretty decent,but I'm glad this will not be some found footage horse shit.

good

I loved the remake. It was the best Friday movie to come out since Manhattan. He was more menacing, ran everywhere. It showed how he lived and got everywhere in the camp so fast with his underground tunnels. They need to do a proper sequel to that. The only problem is that they trapped themselves in a corner with trying to portray Jason as a living person rather than a zombie. And then killed him off at the end. Now instead of going off the basis that he doesn't die due to supernatural reasons,

Now instead of going off the basis that he doesn't die due to supernatural reasons, they have to write in a reason he didn't die in the first movie. I say they need to go Jurassic Park style and either show the Camp open and completely operational or have a wrecking crew come in threatening to bulldoze it down. Either way, he comes back and goes to work.

Thank god. If I have to hear about another found footage film I'm gonna tear my eyes out. And to those remarking about their love for the 09 version, good for you. It really was the same version of the OG. Spruced up for today's standards. And Jason was a little meaner that time around too....which was awesome.

I seriously do not get the hate for the 2009 remake. It followed the simple premise of virtually every Friday the 13th before it. There are a group of dumb ass teens, getting naked, doing drugs, and doing each other. Then, Jason kills them in random ways. What else did you expect? Silence of the Lambs quality horror?

Return to the original ridiculous story line and continue it. A reboot is entirely unnecessary here.

On behalf of the few of us who still have hope for this movie, HOORAY! But seriously, avoid the current trends (found footage), avoid the mentality that nonstop gore = horror, keep the jump scares to a minimum, and you could make a high quality F13 film. Throw out the "bunch of teens partying" prologue, give us a cast we actually care about, and then have this horror icon off 'em one by one. Go for classic - not trendy.

They tried to go for Classic in the 09 version... And everyone shits all over it, and it's literally no different than any other installment. It can easily be be a sequel to the franchise as apposed to a "reboot" name one character you actually "care about" in a Friday the 13th film. This is a horror/ slasher film, and it's Jason voorhees. People go to the theater or watch these movies to see Jason Kill people. Everyone wants a "story" or characters they "care about" and they all forget what

It's a bunch of kids partying and getting killed... The end... They aren't trying to make the citizen Kane of horror films here dude.
