Friday the 13th News

We Almost Had Cheech and Chong vs Jason in a ‘Friday the 13th’ Sequel Forget about Freddy vs. Jason – how about Cheech and Chong vs. Jason instead? In a new interview, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives director Tom McLoughlin revealed that he pitched a Friday the 13th sequel that would have seen the stoner comedy duo coming up against everyone’s favorite hockey mask wearing murderer.

Last week, one of my more anticipated video games of 2017 arrived: Friday the 13th. Well, part of it did. The game is being released in two parts: the multiplayer component, where players can play as camp counselors and the hockey-masked menace who wants to murder them, became available on last Friday. The single player mode is expected to arrive later this summer. Still, my horror nerd heart was all aflutter in my anticipation to play as Jason or one of his teenage victims.

Paramount Kills Production on 'Friday the 13th' Reboot Paramount performed a little maintenance on their calendar last night, removing both World War Z 2 and the repeatedly delayed Friday the 13th reboot from their upcoming release schedule — but that’s not all. The studio has reportedly completely shut down production on their new Friday the 13th project, which was set to begin filming in just six weeks. With no release date (again) and pre-production halted, it seems that Jason Voorhees’ revival may be delayed indefinitely. Continue reading…

Paramount Removes Brad Pitt's WORLD WAR Z Sequel From Their Upcoming Release Schedule It's not looking too good for the zombie apocalypse as Variety is reporting that Paramount Pictures has officially taken their World War Z sequel off the release calendar, which is not entirely shocking considering the film hadn't even begun filming yet. However, what is shocking is that they haven't provided a new release date for the sequel, which almost definitely suggests fans may have to wait even longer to see part two of Brad Pitt's zombie adventures. The film, which lost its original director J.A.

Over the past week, I’ve been revisiting the Friday the 13th series with one simple, stupid goal: I was going to rank every single person killed by Jason Voorhees (and his fellow murderers) in the entire series. There turned out to be 181 of them and I ranked them here and here. But throughout the process, other questions kept cropping up: which Friday the 13th movie is your favorite? How would you rank them? Is The New Blood really worse than Jason Takes Manhattan?

The 'Friday the 13th' Reboot Has Found Its Setting and Script It’s been a long time coming, but after almost a decade, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are ready to start working on the Friday the 13th reboot. The original 1980 Friday the 13th is a horror classic that introduced hockey-masked lunatic Jason Vorhees to the world, but its sequels over the years have left a lot to be desired. Even the 2009 remake was just not that good. Now, it sounds like Fuller and Form, who also produced The Purge series, are ready for another go at it. Continue reading…

Rings Has Been Delayed Into 2017 Poor Rings. The film has had a rough go of it, with it already being delayed two times. Well, it has just seen one more, moving from a lucrative October spot to February 3rd 2017, Variety report. It’s a pretty sudden move, with the film originally slated for not too far away. There is no official reason for the move either, but there is speculation that it might be about financials and Paramount’s lackluster showing this summer. Lets hope this really is the last move for the film.

Rings moves from Halloween to Valentine's Day; Friday the 13th pushed back Ah, the month of February! Love is in the air, flowers are starting to bloom and chocolate flows in the rivers. It's the perfect time for romance, merrymaking and SCARING THE SHIT OUT OF YOUR LOVED ONES. Oh yeah, February, you got a new visitor coming your way. Yes, Paramount has announced (via Variety) that the franchise reboot, RINGS, has just been pushed from the seemingly appropriate month of... Read More...

The CW was developing a Friday the 13th Crystal Lake TV series to explore the origins of Jason Vorhees. In April, it was reported that The CW had passed on the pilot. Today’s CW executive session for the Television Critics Association was the first chance to ask CW president Mark Pedowitz officially what went wrong. During the panel, Pedowitz briefly confirmed that he was no longer developing the series. Speaking with reporters further after the panel, Pedowitz explained why Friday the 13th didn’t work. “We had better pilots,” Pedowitz said.
