Friday The 13th Alumni To Create Horror 'Expendables' Film Titled 'The Survivors'

We are a little late to the game on reporting this news as it was announced a few days ago that actor turned Producer/Director William Butler (Michael, Friday The 13th Part 7: The New Blood) and his Transition Entertainment label are in pre-production on Horror themed The Expendables film that would put some of the genre's most beloved Final Girls and survivors against a nasty serial killer. Not only is a Friday The 13th alumni behind the creative process of making this new and exciting film, but, of course, there will be at least one Final Girl from the franchise acting in the film as well!

Butler and writer Patrick J. Doody (Beneath) are currently penning the story for “THE SURVIVORS” a horror-action feature-film about a multi-generational group of strong female survivors who decide to get revenge as they ban to together and turn the tables on legendary murderer who, during their youth pursued them all. After the killer resurfaces, the women make a pack to track him down and end his twenty-five year killing spree. 

Starring in the project so far are an impressive cast of fan favorites including: Adrienne King (FRIDAY THE 13TH) Heather Langenkamp (NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) Jordan Ladd (CABIN FEVER) Amanda Wyss (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) Deborah Foreman (WAXWORK, APRIL FOOLS DAY) and Patricia Tallman (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD ’90).

Butler is also meeting with with Amy Steel (FRIDAY THE 13th 2), P.J. Soles (HALLOWEEN), Kelli Maroney (NIGHT OF THE COMET), Tuesday Knight (NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST 4) and Lisa Wilcox (NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST 4/5), Beverly Randolph (RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD) in hopes they will also join the dream team. 

This film, if put together properly, should be an awesome homage to the slasher genre of the 80's and a great way to celebrate the Final Girl character we love so much. Stay tuned for more details on this project in the near future.
