New Line and Platinum Dunes are moving ahead with a sequel to the recent remake of “Friday the 13th” according to Risky Biz Blog.
More a follow-up than a direct sequel, Jason Voorhees will be the villain but an all new cast of cannon fodder is expected. The reboot’s writers, Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, recently began work on the script.
The last film used elements from the first four films in the original franchise, whereas this won’t be doing any such homages to the other four sequels in the original series.
Though Marcus Nispel may return to the director’s chair, it’s expected someone else will be hired to direct. Platinum Dunes and New Line are presently more fixed on their planned reboot of the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” franchise.
