Blumhouse Executive Producer Expresses Desire To Make New Friday The 13th

With the writers strike now ended and the actors strike hopefully nearing and end soon, new film and television projects are beginning to pick up steam once again. This is good news for our readers as that means the Crystal Lake show can continue its progress towards filming next year and hopefully a new film will be developed soon as well.

While we wait for news of a new film, executive producer Ryan Turek was recently interviewed by Inverse about the new Blumhouse release Exorcist: Believer, and during that discussion, Ryan was asked what classic horror franchise would be considered a dream project for Blumhouse.

“Jason [Blum] and I are definitely in agreement that Friday the 13th is the thing we would love to get our hands on.

I really want to go back to the basics. You don’t need too many ingredients for a Friday the 13th film. You need a summer camp, you need campers and you need Jason Voorhees in a mask.”

Jason Blum revealed a few years ago during a Twitter AMA that he has tried several times to get the rights to produce a Friday The 13th film. Could the stars align now with numerous strikes ending and the franchise rights now settled? I hope so as I would like to see what Jason Blum and Ryan could put together.
