Appeal To Friday The 13th Rights Reinstated, Battle Could Go Back To Court

The ongoing saga of the rights battle for the Friday The 13th franchise has experienced many interesting turns after Horror Inc filed in October 2018 to block writer Victor Miller from gaining the rights to the original Friday The 13th film. Since that time, the original appeal to the courts findings was withdrawn, with some speculation that a settlement might be forthcoming. A few weeks ago, Entertainment and copyright lawyer Larry Zerner made it known that an April 12th deadline was in affect for Sean and Horror Inc. to file to reinstate their appeal if necessary. We all wondered if a reinstatement would actually happen and, unfortunately, it has.

According to Eriq Gardner, Senior Editor of The Hollywood Reporter, Horror Inc. did reinstate their appeal this past Friday on April 12th.
As we found out last October, there are seemingly projects already in motion, which still include a television show and a new Friday The 13th film, which include Lebron James' Springhill Entertainment. With the appeal of Victor Miller's rights to the original Friday The 13th film now in limbo once again, it may be some time before these new projects are able to see the light of day.
