'Prisoners' Writer Hired To Script New Friday The 13th Film

It has definitely been a long and painful wait for fans of the franchise to receive the next Friday the 13th film and after getting oh so close to production this past summer, things unfortunately fell apart for the planned 80's set film. However, hope is still alive for the thirteenth film in the franchise as Variety just released their scoop on who is being hired to script the latest Friday The 13th!

According to the trade, 2013's Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski has been hired by Paramount to write the new Jason Voorhees film for Platinum Dunes. I thoroughly enjoyed Prisoners as it showcased Hugh Jackman's real acting talent outside of Wolverine. I recommend the thriller to anyone who has not seen it.

This is great news for our readers as Paramount is doing their best to jump-start the production, and hopefully we will hear more about Aaron and his script in the near future!
