It’s hard to keep Jason Voorhees down. Although the big guy’s most recent cinematic journey was a bit of a disappointment, this isn’t stopping Paramount Pictures from putting together another romp featuring everyone’s favorite dead guy in a hockey mask.
The boys and girls at FearNet recently sat down with “Friday the 13th” producer Sean Cunningham to discuss the future of the franchise. According to Cunningham, Jason could return in another movie, a new television series, and a freaking video game. Voorhees might be an old man, but he’s working the industry like a character half his age.
Here’s what Cunningham had to say about the sequel:
There will be another Friday the 13th, which will probably get shot in the spring. If it all goes as I would like, it would then be released at the beginning of 2015.
He had even more to say about the proposed television series:
I think there will also be Friday the 13th: Crystal Lake Chronicles, which is sort of a Smallville. We’ve been on-again off-again with that for years and there are a bunch of great stories to be told, but I think the way that it’s finally going to get delivered is not through a conventional television network, but through the Internet. I can’t tell you who the delivery people will be, but it won’t be the traditional route. There’s also the possibility of webisodes, and I think we even have an idea for a terrific Friday the 13th video game.
Although the “Smallville” comparison is sure to ruffle the feathers of hardcore fans, at least they have plenty of “Friday the 13th” stuff to keep them busy. And as long as the new video game is better than that unforgiving NES title, then I’ll be a happy little horror nerd.
