Jason Voorhees To Get A Father?

A few days ago came word from producer Brad Fuller that the upcoming second reboot of the “Friday the 13th” franchise will incorporate a new origin story for the iconic hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees.

Screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski penned the last draft of the script and now sources for Birth Movies Death claim that Jason’s abusive father Elias Voorhees will be featured in the story.

The character has been referenced in the past but has never been seen on screen in any of the previous films aside from a cut scene from the sixth film which features him visiting the empty grave of his son.

No cast members have been attached at this time to the project which is also rumored to be a period piece which will take the action back to the 1980s.
