Sure, it may be “dead” now (or more specifically, according to producer Brad Fuller: “Right now there is no movement on Friday 13th: Part 2”), but it’s not going to stay that way forever. They’re remaking shitty horror movies from the ’70s, for God’s sake, and all of a sudden they’re not going to somehow force a sequel to the “Friday the 13th” remake, which grossed $91 from a $19 million budget? If you believe that, I got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell ya.
In any case, all this news about the sequel to the “Friday the 13th” remake being “dead” is all over the horror sites, and it’s laughable. It all originates from Fuller, who responded to a tweet about progress on the sequel, to which he replied, “it is dead- not happening”. Bloody-Disgusting eventually got a more diplomatic answer from him (ala the first quote).
Don’t worry your little spiky hair, horror fiends, a sequel to “Friday the 13th” is like its main character Jason Voorhees. It ain’t never gonna be dead. NEVER. It’s all just a matter of time before it’s resurrected. Probably when the studio that owns the rights decide they need an automatic hit.
