Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes plans to release a remake of “Friday the 13th” sometime in 2009 reports Variety.
First announced in January 2006, the project fell into development hell as time went on and Platinum Dunes released a series of failed remakes (Hitcher, Amityville) and prequels (TCM: The Beginning).
Many are waiting to see the performance of Rob Zombie’s “Halloween” remake to see whether this moves forward or not. Jonathan Liebesman was previously attached to direct the R-Rated horror film which would return to Crystal Lake.
February, March, November will all experience the fateful potential release date throughout that year.
