'Friday the 13th' Reboot & Legacy Sequel In The Works?


Not going to lie, did not see this coming. Sean S. Cunningham, director of the original Friday the 13th (1980) has plans for an all-new reboot! What's more? If that doesn't work out, he also has plans for a direct sequel/requel to the 1980 hit.

Locker explains, “Sean hired me to do a rewrite on The Night Driver and after working closely with director Jeremy Weiss and him on that, we naturally got to talking about Friday the 13th and House. Jeremy and I pitched our dream reboot of Friday the 13th – with Sean’s blessing to keep developing it with him.”

Locker continues, “Obviously, the prequel TV series has reignited interest about a new film so we’re hoping the surrounding excitement will inspire both sides to come together and give us Jason on the big screen again for the first time in 14 years, but we also have a Plan B for a sequel to the original we think fans will absolutely love and should avoid any legal entanglements.”

We'll keep our eyes and ears peeled for this one. Afterall, the TV series Crystal Lake is still happening
