Twenty-five years after it was released, “Jason Goes To Hell” director Adam Marcus has revealed he has an idea for a “Friday the 13th” spin-off that would put the focus on Steven Williams’ character Creighton Duke from the original.
Duke was a bounty hunter with a large amount of knowledge of the history of Jason Voorhees, following Jason having killed his girlfriend at Camp Crystal Lake years earlier. Duke sought him out with the intent of killing the supernatural being permanently.
Jason ultimately killed him, but Duke was able to send him to hell nonetheless in the ninth of the official “Friday the 13th” film. Speaking with Cinema Toast Crunch, Marcus says he hopes to go into production next year:
“I have a movie… you’re the first ones I’ve talked about this to… that is a completely Creighton Duke-inspired movie. We’re doing that next year. I can tell you that I’m talking with Steven Williams about this. I’m dead serious about this movie. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years. For me, that was the character that I gave a crap about. That’s the guy that I adore. And, I’m tellin’ ya, I have something up my sleeve that’s gonna knock people out.”
It’s also believed the spin-off will not address Jason Voorhees at all, not unexpected considering the franchise is in a legal rights quagmire at present.
