Fans have been debating since February whether or not the success of Friday the 13th would prompt a sequel in the near future. Despite being pre-occupied with their reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller has hinted that a new instalment of the long running franchise may be on the cards.
“If we’re going to do another Friday the 13th we want to present something audiences haven’t seen before and one of the things they haven’t seen before is Jason in the snow. We just want to bring things they haven’t seen before,” Fuller stated, although he admits that there is no completed script at present. “Whatever we need to do to make our kills feel clever in our second film is what we’re going to do. I think turning (Jason) into a space-going astronaut is the direction we’re going to go in. But that’s a criticism goes to my heart. I feel I failed the fans in that those kills were not original enough.”
Platinum Dunes‘ Friday the 13th will debut on DVD this week as a ‘killer cut,’ with added violence and nudity.
