Friday The 13th Film Pushed Back Again, Now To 2017
According to Variety, Friday The 13th has been moved from the previous May 13, 2016 date to January 13, 2017. Paramount's Rings has also been moved back into 2016. This is quite discouraging for fans who have been fed multiple release dates and hope of a new film only to be let down once again.\
On a positive note, the fact that Friday The 13th is still on the release schedule for Paramount is encouraging, but how much longer does the distributor have the rights to make a new film? Also, it is being reported by Bloody Disgusting that Paramount is now actively looking for new writers and a possible shift in direction from the 1980's setting once mentioned by Platinum Dunes.
When we hear more about this unfortunate situation, we will let you know!
