“Friday the 13th” sequel officially in the works

June 12, 2013

At the HATCHET 3 premiere, Evan Dickson interviewed Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees in the 2009 remake) who stated, “I spoke to Brad Fuller and he said that the rights are, as everyone knows, over at Paramount and they’re pushing hard. They’re going we want [a new Friday The 13th movie] as fast as possible.

So now we have confirmation that Platinum Dunes, the production company behind the 2009 remake, is partnering with Paramount for the sequel to FRIDAY THE 13TH.

Platinum Dunes consists of Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Michael Bay. They are the studio behind such remakes as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare On Elm St. and The Amityville Horror.

Mears is hopeful to return as Voorhees, “…I know they [Platinum Dunes] like me.” He continues, “…look, even if I’m not a part of the series, as a fan I just want to see more.
