The next FRIDAY THE 13th film to have a found footage gimmick!?!? Nooooo!!!
Hey Yo, Draven here.
What better way to start off October than an update on a new big-screen FRIDAY THE 13th film? Well, we knew that Warner Bros gave the rights of the franchise back to Paramount in exchange for a 50/50 split on Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR. We all obviously also knew that Paramount wouldn’t do that just to let the franchise stay dead.
There were some rumors a few years ago that the powers that be wanted to develop the next film with the found footage gimmick and according to Shock Til’ You Drop’s Ryan Turek, Paramount is still taking pitches from filmmakers with this concept.
I absolutely hate the idea of a found footage Jason movie and it seems to completely defeat the fun us fans have with the franchise. I actually enjoyed the remake and wish they would just continue forward with that iteration. I honestly can’t see how this will work but if they want some good will they need to get Derek Mears back as Jason. Hopefully they find a creative way of doing this, and that it isn't just a cash grab with out of touch studio executives just attempting to jump on what they percieve to be the hot new fad. But I doubt it.
On a more positive note though, the other FRIDAY THE 13th fans out there need to make sure they check the incredible documentary, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES. It is the most in-depth documentary you are ever going to find on the franchise and is endlessly entertaining. It is definitely worth the $22.46 it is on Amazon right now so go check it out.
