New Friday The 13th Film To Remain "Period Piece", Filming Soon?!

After writer Nick Antosca's script was rejected last year and director David Bruckner left the pre-production of the new Friday The 13th film, fans were left dejected once again with another set back to bring Jason Voorhees back to the big screen. Last December, Aaron Guzikowski was hired to construct a new script and story for the latest Friday The 13th and since then there has been nothing new to report, until now.

While at WonderCon this past weekend, the website TooFab caught up with Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and asked about the progress of the film.

"I can tell you I believe there will be a set visit for everybody soon," Form teased, when toofab's Brian Particelli asked for the latest on the movie, which has gone through numerous delays following the 2009 release of a franchise reboot."

When Andrew Form was pressed about if the new film would keep the 1980's setting from Nick Antosca's script, there was a bit of hesitation, but answered with the following:

"There is truth that this is period," he confirmed, without saying which period it'd take place in. Fuller quickly added, "And NOT found footage."

"We're so lucky to have Aaron Guzikowski writing, who is a fan of the franchise," Form added. "He's come up with an amazing story and we can't wait to make this one."

It's safe to say that progress is being made and there is a strong possibility that production may start soon on the much maligned and in-progress next chapter in the Friday The 13th franchise!
