Stephen King wanted to write a novel about Jason Voorhees

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Can we please make this happen? Stephen King has tackled many stories in his lifetime but the bestselling author revealed that there is one resident of Camp Crystal Lake that he would really love to write about.

King took to his Twitter page and wrote that he toyed with the idea of writing a story about Jason Voorhees, everyone's favorite camp counselor homicidal maniac of the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise. Check out what King had to say about the idea below:

King even has an idea of who could make a movie version of his idea work:

Patton Oswalt was pretty much all of us when he saw King's tweets about his Jason Voorhees novel and even has some ideas of his own:

The last FRIDAY THE 13TH film to hit the big screen was the 2009 remake starring Jared Padalecki and Derek Mears, who played Jason Voorhees. Over the last few years, the franchise has become the subject of a very tense legal battle between Victor Miller, who wrote the original 1980 film, and that movie's producers. Due to ongoing legal drama, the franchise has been in a pretty stagnant state but King's tweet actually makes me long for what could've been if he chose to flesh out his idea.
