NEW Friday the 13th Film Coming…

fridayJust in time for Halloween, we have some details about the coming Friday the 13th… The next film will feature a script by Aaron Guzikowski and will be directed by Breck Eisner. Eisner is known for his work on The Crazies and The Last Witch Hunter. He will also be directing the first few episodes of the new season of SyFy’s series The Expanse. Casting begins in December with filming expected to begin next spring in Georgia.

Producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form spoke to Collider about the difficulty of getting this project off the ground. Fuller said:

“At one point, the studio wanted us to make a found-footage version of that movie and that was deeply concerning to us because we didn’t think we could execute the movie in the right way if it was a found-footage movie.” 

“Aaron Guzikowski’s job, as challenging as it is, is to come up with a movie where if you haven’t seen any go the other ones, you can still come and see this one and love it and not feel like you’ve missed out on anything. And if you have seen the other ones, we want this to feel fresh. That’s what took the longest amount of time: coming up with a story and then executing a script that fulfills both of those mandates.”

The producers have confirmed the still-untitled movie will be a period piece. Stay tuned, kids….
