Do we really need another Friday the 13th? Nah. But will we watch it? Most definitely.
It’s been five years since Warner Bros. rebooted Friday the 13th with producer Michael Bay, and it looks like the studios are doing it again. The next Friday the 13th reboot is slated for November 13, 2015 and will be directed by David Bruckner.
Bruckner was originally rumored to create a found-footage version of the classic film, but that awesome rumor was scrapped and 3-D has officially been tacked on to the project, THR confirms. Bruckner would have been perfect for a found-footage film, being that his directorial credits include horror anthology cult favorites V/H/S and The Signal. Unfortunately, we’ll have to go the normal route of watching Jason kill kids at Camp Crystal Lake.
While this time around we’ll have a fantastic director attached to the project, it looks as if Michael Bay and his production company will again be working on the Friday the 13th reboot. Here’s hoping that 3-D actually works out in favor of the audience and Michael Bay’s explosive tactics.
