Fans can now look forward to the brand new Friday the 13th with enthusiasm because of this recent announcement. Which is that the new movie will NOT, (I'll repeat that) NOT, be in found footage form.
Lots of Friday the 13th fans including myself weren't very happy with the fact that they had planned on going that route in the first place. But thankfully we won't have to be worrying about that any longer.
Now of course, with the positives has to come the negatives. And that would be the additional announcement that the film has been pushed back till 2018.... I'm just kidding, the actual date the film will be released on is now November 13th, 2015. So it's still on Friday the 13th, just eight months pass what we expected unfortunately.
I also imagine that if the brand new Halloween will indeed come out next year as well, then it would probably be coming out around the same time. So we can expect both of these horror heavyweights soon.
