Platinum Dunes Producer Discusses Horror Remakes And Friday The 13th 2

There was a long period of anticipation following the release of Friday The 13th 2009 as many fans were led to believe a sequel was to immediately follow the franchise reboot. Platinum Dunes even set a release date of August 13, 2010 for Friday The 13th 2 where all indications pointed towards Jason Voorhees stalking his victims in snow for the very first time in the franchise. For reasons that are still real unclear, Warner Bros. seemed to balk at the idea of creating a new set of Friday The 13th films kickstarted by Platinum Dunes. Here we are over four years later and there is no talk at all of a new film, which is pretty depressing for everyone who enjoys the series.

Recently, Producer Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes was a guest on the Internet Horror radio show Necronomicast and talked about the companies past Horror remakes, future movies (which include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and which films he would want to make sequels to of their past Horror remakes. If only very briefly, Friday The 13th 2009 was brought up and the prospects of that ever elusive sequel. Brad mentioned that out of all of the films they have created thus far, Friday The 13th was the most enjoyable to work on and that if Warner Bros. came calling about a sequel, Platinum Dunes would jump at the opportunity to start production on a new Jason Voorhees story.

Interestingly enough, it has been mentioned from time to time that Platinum Dunes didn't want to make another Friday The 13th film, but it is more and more apparent that Warner Bros. is holding all of the cards and are for some reason waiting to release another Jason romp in the woods.
