Exclusive: Brad Fuller & Andrew Form on abandoned Friday the 13th sequel

Recently our very own Eric Walkuski had the chance to sit down and chat with Platinum Dunes head honcho's and A QUIET PLACE producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. The guys talked about a ton of stuff but what struck us the most interesting here at AITH was when they spoke a bit about the abandoned sequel to their 2009 remake of FRIDAY THE 13TH.

Brad Fuller: 

One of the biggest heartbreaks of the last couple years was that we were about to make that movie and it fell apart. That still hurts. The fans reach out to us; Andrew doesn't really engage because he's not on Twitter, but I am and I hear from the fans and that's all they ask about. We get asked about that more than anything else. Fans think it's so simple, that if we want to make the movie we can go make it, and that's just not the case. There are rights issues; originally, Warner Bros. owned the rights, then Paramount had them for a couple of years, and now I think the rights are reverting back to Warner Bros. At the same time, there's this on-going lawsuit with Victor Miller. If there's a lawsuit hanging over the rights, it's problematic, you can't really make the movie until that gets settled. And now the movie is at New Line, and we've made a lot of movies with those guys, but that's not our home studio anymore. So the question is, do they want to make the movie with us? If they want to make that movie with us, we will drop what we're doing to make that movie. We had such a great experience making Friday the 13th, it was a dream come true to watch those movies as a kid and then be a part of it. So I don't really have a clear answer.

Andrew Form:

That one still hurts every day. We were a couple of weeks from filming on that one, Guzikowski wrote an unbelievable script, we found the camp... That one still hurts.

"That one still hurts." No kidding. What do you make of Brad Fuller and Andrew Form's comments regarding their abandoned FRIDAY THE 13TH sequel? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!
