Friday the 13th Sequel Slaughtered

Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller has confirmed that a sequel to last year’s remake of “Friday the 13th” has essentially been canned.

Asked about its status, Fuller mentioned on his Twitter account that the project “is dead – not happening” and later told Bloody Disgusting that “right now there is no movement on Friday 13th: Part 2”.

The comments are a complete reversal from those a year ago after the reboot scored a healthy $91 million worldwide and Dunes’ reps talked of a script being readied for a sequel that was initially dated for August this year.
