Finally news at last regarding the remake of a remake of Friday the 13th.
It has been widely reported across the web that up and coming Director David Bruckner has secured the rights to helm the next chapter in the Voorhees franchise.
His roots are firmly within the horror but with just two films to his name, 2007’s The Signal and the opener of found footage compilation V/H/S it will be seen in some circles as a bold choice and others as a risky one.
Either way the film can now move forward towards the Friday 13th March 2015 release date slated by Platinum Dunes and Paramount.
Given his background it seems the rumoured found footage angle will now become a reality. Until some stills or a teaser trailer comes online I will keep an open mind about this one.
Let’s face it we’ve already had Jason in New York and space; so it can’t get any whackier, right?
