Tiny pieces of news continue to trickle in for Paramounts new Friday the 13th remake/sequel/prequel, and yet now it seems that everything we knew about the story is void, and new writers are being hunted to develop the new film further.
As reported by Bloody Disgusting, the film will now be released sometime in 2017, instead of its original date of Friday the 13th May 2016.
Last we heard (back in July) was that Nick Antosca (Hannibal) had handed in his script for the new Friday the 13th, so it would seem that Paramount aren’t happy with it, or require changes to be made.
Paramount are now looking for new writers, which in turn has pushed the films release date back to 2017. BD also report rumblings that the 1980’s setting might be scrapped.
At this point in time David Bruckner (VHS, The Signal) is still attached (we hope) to direct.
More as it develops.
