With the Friday the 13th
reboot pulling in more than $71 million worldwide, only a very stupid clown person with a silly face and a nose the size of a small planet wouldn't think of the franchise re-continuing.
And that is exactly what's probably going to happen. Sources close to the production (read: this is not a guarantee!) have let slip that New Line and Platinum Dunes are likely to go ahead on a new Friday the 13th
. Also, the writers for the last film, Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, are expected to pen the new flick.
The film is likely to be a follow up to the new reboot, rather than using the previous series as a reference point. The reason for this is that, while friday the 13th
parts 1-4 were okay, the rest of the series was a massive load of poo. Producers obviously don't want Jason to be awaked by bolts of lightening, battle psychic girls and travel to New York. Wonder why.SPOILER WARNING
No word yet on whether the beautfiul surviving white people (Jared Padalecki and Amanda Righetti) will be returning. With their busy TV schedules -“Supernatural”, “The Mentalist” they might not be able to put in the time.
However, this probably won't be confirmed for a few weeks at least. The two studios are now looking towards the long-awaited Nightmare on Elm Street
remake, which begins shooting in just two months.
