We've heard a lot of things about the 2017 Friday the 13th reboot. First we thought it was gonna be a found footage movie, then we were reassured that Prisoners writer Aaron Guzikowski was set to script the project. The first real news in awhile comes via Collider, who secured a few details about the upcoming Friday the 13th reboot from producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form:
1. Friday The 13th (2017) Will NOT Be Found Footage
"No, Jason is a POV movie. So, it was very hard to wrap our head around how you would do a 'Friday the 13th' that was found footage, knowing that we really need the Jason perspective of watching. We didn’t want to break the DNA of that."
Whatever the new Friday the 13th has in store for us, let's hope there's some EPIC KILLS:
- Jason Voorhees' Family Tree: 7 Relatives We Could See in Friday the 13th 2017
- Friday the 13th Fan Theory: Why Jason Voorhees Is Getting Worse at Killing
- 5 Women Who've Played Mrs. Pamela Voorhees On Friday The 13th
2. It Will Feature A Traditional Friday The 13th Setting
"I’m here to say that we found the location. We have found the lake, we have found the camp."
3. It's Not Long Until The Movie Films In Georgia
"That movie is shooting in early Spring."
4. It Won't Be A Full-On Jason: Origins Story
"Fuller and Form made it clear that they won’t try to explain Jason or anything like that in this installment, but you still need to have some semblance of his mythology around."
5. We Know Who's Creating The Film
"We found an amazing script by Aaron Guzikowski. Breck Eisner is directing the movie."
Friday the 13th will be released October 13, 2017 (yes, it's a Friday).
