Sean Cunningham: Sequel For 2015, Television Series And A Video Game!

It was widely speculated that there might be some news on a Friday The 13th sequel today and although there has been no official release by Paramount Pictures, Sean Cunningham was recently interviewed over at FearNet and some information that we were told recently has been revealed.

1. Filming for the Friday The 13th sequel is aiming for Spring 2014 with an early 2015 targeted release date. (Something we have been mentioning to a few fans on Facebook)

From Sean Cunningham
"It won’t be a continuation of [the remake's] story, though. It’ll be a fresh story."

2. A television series is still in the works called Friday The 13th: Crystal Lake Chronicles

From Sean Cunningham
“[I] think there will also be “Friday the 13th: Crystal Lake Chronicles,” which is sort of a “Smallville”,” he reveals. “We’ve been on-again off-again with that for years and there are a bunch of great stories to be told, but I think the way that it’s finally going to get delivered is not through a conventional television network, but through the Internet. I can’t tell you who the delivery people will be, but it won’t be the traditional route. There’s also the possibility of webisodes"

3. A Freddy vs Jason sequel is still in the cards!

From Sean Cunningham
“I think the chances are good, for a couple of reasons, but I think it will ultimately be a marketing concept. Right now, I think the audience would have to start getting bored with the Friday… movie by itself or the Freddy movie by itself. I don’t think it’s going to happen in the next short period of time. Conceivably in five years.”

4. Lastly, a Friday The 13th video game, finally!

From Sean Cunningham
"and I think we even have an idea for a terrific Friday the 13th video game.”

So what do you think about all of these developments? All this writer can be sure of is that a sequel is going forward and what Sean mentioned in his interview is exactly what we have been hearing. Outside of that news, everything else mentioned is exciting, but still a long ways off from becoming reality. Stay tuned for more information on the sequel and other media mentioned in the near future! Make sure to visit FearNet for the entire interview
