friday-the-13th

Hello fellow frustrated and impatient Freddy, Jason & Michael fans! I thought I’d give an update on each of the big three slasher franchies and where they stand right now. So what movement there is (or not) on any of the above and what the latest up to date info is on each of them. Look I know the feeling, you get to read a bunch of rumours or supposed start dates for these movies and then everything goes real quiet for like five years. No joke. So onto the news.

First up we have Halloween. Now last we heard Halloween Returns was set to shoot last year with a release date set for this Halloween. Well we can forget about that. It’s dead. Dimension films have lost the rights. As of right now no other studio has bought them and the project isn’t likely to go ahead even if the series finds a new home. Shame.

Moving onto Friday The 13th Part XIII. This film has died and came back to life almost as many times as Jason himself! The latest is this. There’s a script. It’s set in the 1980’s. It won’t be found footage and I kind of don’t care anymore because there’s no director, there’s no confirmed start date and they’ve now passed on TWO (what were meant to be) great scripts. The film has a release window for next year which is as likely as happening as the mean girl is to survive an 80’s slasher movie.

Finally onto Elm Street. No date. No director. No news…except for this. Somewhere in L.A. right now somone is working away on the next A Nightmare on Elm Street. It’s happening. It’s being written. My guess is that after the absolute mess of the last movie New Line will be taking their time with this new reboot, remake, sequel or whatever the hell it ends up being.

That’s all the big franchise news right now. You know me and how this blog works. I don’t do click bait or post wild speculation or rumours like a lot of the bigger sites because there is nothing more annoying. I’ll give you the facts and like ’em or hate ’em this is where the big three stand right now.
