Movie News: Paramount Reschedule Release Date for New FRIDAY THE 13TH Entry

Movie News

Production companies often get fixated on cinema trends, many of which are cyclical. There’s few who’ll protest that 3D hasn’t outstayed its welcome, a gimmick that, at best, has two successful examples to its name. Another trend is found-footage. While the shaky-cam stylings are rooted in cinema, it was popularised by the shoestring budget of innovative mockumentary BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. Perhaps the worst trend is the continual (and let’s face it, inevitable) rebooting of old franchises.

The latest FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot won’t be a found-footage film. One out of three ain’t bad. The film, however, has been delayed by six months, and is now scheduled for a Friday 13th November 2015 release date as opposed to the original March slot.

David Brucker, of THE SIGNAL and V/H/S fame, is currently in talks to helm the splatter fest of a family saga. Whether or not it will be in any way connected to the recently announced TV series remains to be seen. Check in with STARBURST for more details as they surface.
