Paramount's Friday the 13th reboot to hit theaters in 2015

11.27.2013

No, that's not a typo in the headline: a new Jason movie is in the works, and it will be a reboot. Paramount picked up the rights to the horror franchise from Warner Bros. in June in exchange for the rights to co-produce Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated INTERSTELLAR, and the studio has announced that the thirteenth film in the series will land in theaters on March 13th, 2015.

The 2009 film was also a reboot, so what will make this movie different from the previous one? Solid plans for FRIDAY THE 13TH haven't been released, but several sites have speculated the reboot will be a found footage film, which has been very popular (and profitable) for horror movies in recent years.

Really though, another reboot? I'm not the biggest Jason fan, but I'm sure there are some that aren't happy at all with this news. And if the reboot does end up being shot as found footage, will the style turn off hardcore fans of the series? It'll be interesting to see how Paramount will handle the latest reboot of the horror movie icon.

Seriously!?

Sooooo they are rebooting a reboot!? Just make a god damn sequal or something of the reboot, not a freakin reboot of a reboot. Just reading it and saying that out loud sounds retarded. I think after this so called reboot of a reboot the franchise will most likely die. What else can you do with this. Make something else paramount.

Gritty, No Hope, Alone........

Show a single person being scared, and a single person watching everyone around them die, and you have a winning horror movie. Every movie seems to have a pretty white girl surviving something horrible, and we are just down with it.

just STUPID

They have to remember two things:
first in a Found Footage film, the camera is held by the HERO
BUT, in the F13th franchise JASON IS THE HERO, whatever you like it or not !
So, except if you find a way to put a cam ON JASON, there is NO FUCKING WAY this might work !
PERIOD !

I'm not on board with a found footage film but if they are intent on doing that at least make it a sequel to the 2009 reboot and not another pointless reboot. Hell, we all know that none of these movies have much to do with the last anyway.

They could steal the plot from Jay and Silent Bob and have Jason go to Hollywood to kill the execs and actors that are ruining his legacy.

about time.

The Good news there making another jason movie. been waiting long since 2009 to hear anything about another film. The average news that its another reboot. So a reboot of the 2009 reboot? The bad news that this could be found footage. Now instead of screwing with the franchise that way, why dont they just go all out and take him back in space.

Freddy Vs Jason 2

there is a whole chapter of Jason's life missing from the original canon series. The time between "Freddy Vs Jason" and "Jason X". We need a Freddy Vs Jason 2 where they fill finish their battle and Jason gets capture by the govt. (and no phone footage)

i also wanna see "Chucky vs Leprechaun" that movie would be awesome

Hehe, I actually filmed a short based on this idea, myself being a big Jason fan and my friend I did it with being a big Michael fan. I'm a lazy asshole, though, so 5 years later it's still sitting on my harddrive unedited...

I WAS EXCITED....UUUNNNTIIIILLLLLLL.......

until they mentioned that DAMNED found footage crap. Found footage just means cheap production and a really shaky camera resulting in a movie where the viewer is incapable of focusing on anything and in some cases gets sea sickness. AAAAAHHHHHGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!! It really shouldn't be this hard Hollywood. Don't mess with the formula. I enjoyed the last reboot, though it wasn't as fun as say F13VI or F13VII, but it was descent.

NO

I'm a huge Jason fan and I've been hoping that they would just go back and make a proper sequel that takes place after Freddy vs. Jason. We had the first nine films and Jason had gone to hell and Freddy pulls his mask to hell as well. Then we have FvJ where Freddy resurrects Jason to live again. They fight and the movie ends. They could easily dismiss the 2009 reboot and make a new Jason movie following the events of FvJ. Jason X stills exists but it obviously can take place in the future

Not exactly a series that ever needed a reboot in the first place. Dumb ass kids go to the lake, Jason kills all but a couple, and the cycle continues. Not exactly the hardest thing to make a sequel to no matter how much time passes between them

Huge fan

Like everyone else, I feel a found footage Jason would be a terrible idea, especially for this milestone entry in the series. The last one was only a "remake" for brand-recognition purposes to draw in both old and new fans... it was a completely original story. Sequel that, or go back to the original franchise and bring back Corey Feldman.

If we're talking found footage here, Jason with a Go-Pro camera attached to his head wouldn't be a bad idea...

I'm a die hard fan of the Friday the 13 franchise (it's my favorite horror franchise) and if this film is going to be a found footage film then that just sucks and is plain awful. What happened with making a sequel to the remake and having some of the film take place in the winter? Now that was an inspired idea that we haven't seem yet in a F13 film...Jason in winter.

I really hope they change the concept of the film because this WILL BE THE 13TH Friday the 13th film in the franchise and as

I would agree! It's so frustrating to see franchises like this that still have an enormous amount of potential within extensive unexplored territory, and they just let it go to waste.

Honestly, I think the only thing that would excite me about continuing the franchise at this point is if they brought Corey Feldman back as Tommy and used The Final Friday for the launching pad for a part sequel, part reboot.

My thoughts exactly. Corey Feldman has actually expressed interest in returning to the franchise to do exactly what you just said. I can't think of a better way to reboot the franchise. To me, that seems as if it would be the perfect key to rebooting any franchise. Bring back certain characters that the original fans love and use them to relaunch the franchise without actually remaking it.

Agreed! Lol. Logically speaking there should be just a quick shot of Jason as the camera accidentally catches him and then just a shaky, incoherent and chaotic blue as the holder of the camera takes off running.

I'm a huge fan of the Friday the 13th series, but we need to wait and hear more information. A sequel to the remake is still highly likely as Platinum Dunes is coming back to make the film. Found footage would ruin any movie they do though.
