Paramount Sets Date for Next Friday the 13th Film!
November 26, 2013
A new Friday the 13th
film is indeed coming. Paramount has confirmed this by locking in a release date of March 13, 2015!
Yes, that's a Friday the 13th. (The 13th also falls on a Friday in February and November of that year.) And no, an official title has not been revealed (will it be Friday the 13th 2
? Friday the 13th: Part 2
? Friday the 13th
with some subtitle attached?)
We learned in June that Warner Bros. relinquished the rights to the franchise and gave them back to Paramount. The studio had five years to get a new entry in theaters before those rights reverted back.
There are no further details other than that. We know Platinum Dunes will be producing the film, but there is no director and there are rumblings of the producers looking for a "found footage" approach.
Paramount has also decided to move up the release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
two days to December 18.
