Friday 13th remake?

Jan. 8, 2007by: JimmyO

It looks as though everyone's favorite hockey masked psycho may be coming back from the dead. For a long time there have been rumors of a remake or "re-imagining" of that unlucky day for Crystal Lake counselors, but for awhile it seems the project had been stalled. Not so, according to the producing partners over at Platinum Dunes, as Andrew Form and Brad Fuller gave word at the press conference for their latest "re-working" of THE HITCHER which I attended. When asked about the project, Form gave us this little bit of info, "Well, we're working on a script right now. Not in the first two quarters for that movie; maybe at the end of next year. But right now we're just working on a screenplay." When asked about possible directors, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING, Jonathan Liebesman's name came up.

"It all depends on his schedule. He's got a lot of things rolling around right now, so if he's available and we have a script We'd love to work with him again; we had a great experience with him." So it seems that Jason and his crew of teenage fodder may be coming back to a theatre near you sooner than you can say we thought. (You will be able to read the full interview very soon, so keep an eye out). This may excite some and infuriate others but what can I say I have a mad love for all things Jason and I wouldn't mind going back to camp. I love these films, even the bad ones so I'm kind of groovin' on the idea. What do you think about it? Looking forward to it or are you ready to slaughter at the thought of another remake?

Do it!

These movies sucked! A remake for this is a good idea. I either laughed or was bored throughout all Friday the 13th flick. At least Freddy Vs. Jason was tongue-in-cheek, making it the best movie that Jason was in.

Confusing

Guys it`s probably either THIS or "Freddy VS. Jason II". I`d love to just have a straight "Friday" sequel in the woods.....but this might be the closet we get to that.
But like others have said, hockey-masked Jason wasn`t in the original.....and you know they ain`t gonna make a "Friday the 13th" movie without hockey-masked Jason. I mean the popularity of Jason is the only reason they`re even talking about doing this.

Basically, I think this isn`t going to be a "remake" as much as just a

Basically, I think this isn`t going to be a "remake" as much as just a new Jason movie that ignores the other sequels (at this point maybe not such a bad idea really).

Original Schmoe!

In a way, it's kind of good that they're doing this. Whether we like it or not, Hollywood is destined to destroy every single piece of original work that there is out there. So the sooner we let them use all the original content out there, the sooner they'll have to actually start using their brains. Then again... This is Hollywood here. lol.

Jason?

Does anyone realize that hockey mask Jason wasn't in the original movie? You hear Friday the 13th and go right to Jason but he was only in the original for like 2 seconds as a boy. As far as remaking the first, who gives a shit? The first wasn't all that anyway.

shite shite shite

I'm sure this is just as good of an idea as the TCSM remake...they even got the same director. And will make the same amount of money from me: $0.

Meh. The original Friday is one of the worst movies of all time IMO. So I don't really care either way about news of this remake.

Isn't every Friday the 13th movie a remake after the first two? This news doesn't really effect me much.

Meh

I never loved the original Friday, I mean it was ok but not classic or anything in my opinion. I could have taken that crazy old woman but yet she manages to kill the whole camp? Doubt it. I am all up for a remake minus old lady!

Cool!

I remember hearing about this some time last year but then nothing. I love Jason but as many others have said, the series is weak. I'd love to see a remake only if they can provide one hell of a story that could give answers to numerous enigmas plaguing the original series.

It's only a matter of time before every great horror classic is "re-imagined" for today's audiences. Then, Hollywood will actually have to come up with original ideas for new horror flicks. Imagine that.

LOVE IT!!!

I am all for more of Jason however we can get it. By the way, the_jer, you answered your own question - it's all about the money, and they'll get your $8.00, too.

I'm all for it. Even though I think Jason has by far the worst series of all the modern horror heavies, he's my favorite character and I'd love to see the character given justice in a good film rather than just one that's either A. Bad (I.E. the first few Jason flicks) or B. Only around to make some money on a few laughs (I.E. Jason X).

The Friday the 13th series has always been my favorite of the horror films, so I'm kind of torn on this. I also enjoyed the bad ones as well, but Jason X kind of left him where a sequel could be made. However it could be better just to start all over again and make things fresh. I think it's too early to make up my mind one way or the other, I'll wait until I hear more specifics about the script.

Meh... if you're gonna do it, do it fuckin' right. I really don't think it's necessary, but... these things happen I guess.

At least bring back Kevin Bacon to put a harpoon through his neck again.

Why?

why does hollywood insist on this remake bullshit? please tell me a good reason, besides the fact that it's profitable...because to me, it's not about profit, it's about entertainment.
