There Is Active Development For A Friday The 13th Remake Or Direct Sequel To 1980 Film

Bloody Disgusting got the scoop on what Sean Cunningham is up to recently while finding out that Sean has been collaborating with writer Jeff Locker and Director Jeremy Weiss on a number of projects. The main projects include a remake of the 1985 House as well as an original film titled The Night Driver. The big news is that the writing/directing duo has pitched their idea for a straight remake to the original 1980 film. Of course, there are still legal issues to releasing a new film theatrically, but writer Jeremy Locker has his thoughts on all of that.

“Obviously, the prequel TV series has reignited interest about a new film so we’re hoping the surrounding excitement will inspire both sides to come together and give us Jason on the big screen again for the first time in 14 years, but we also have a Plan B for a sequel to the original we think fans will absolutely love and should avoid any legal entanglements.”

Nice to see there is a separate project in the works for Friday The 13th if a reboot does not work out. Either way it is exciting to see a possible new film project in the works. There is still a very long way to go before we get any solid project green light, but this is great news indeed .
