Fans of the legendary horror icon Jason Voorhees can rejoice, as an official release date has been set for a new Friday the 13th movie.
Paramount—after grabbing the rights to the franchise and a possible future South Park movie in exchange for a little piece of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar—has locked in the March 13, 2015 date for the next chapter…and yes, that is a Friday. It also puts the movie right around the time that every other movie you can possibly think of is getting ready to release.
What type of movie it will be is unknown, but one thing we do know is that it will be another reboot entirely, not a sequel to the 2009 reboot. Rumors have indicated that they may be exploring a found footage option. I’m both a big fan of Friday the 13th and found footage flicks, and maybe they’d find a way to make it work, but combining the two just doesn’t feel right. I say just stick with the classic formula and make it fun and entertaining. Nothing else is required of such a movie.
