With yesterday being Friday 13th, it appears that we may be seeing a lot more of that date in the next few years, at least that’s the word according to Sean Cunningham. Cunningham wrote and directed the original 1980 FRIDAY THE 13TH, and has recently been speaking to FEARnet.
In regards to a film, Cunningham said, “There will be another FRIDAY THE 13TH, which will probably get shot in the spring. If it all goes as I would like, it would then be released at the beginning of 2015. It won’t be a continuation of the remake’s story, though. It’ll be a fresh story.”
As for a TV series, he added, “I think there will also be FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE CRYSTAL LAKE CHRONICLES, which is sort of a SMALLVILLE. We’ve been on-again off-again with that for years and there are a bunch of great stories to be told, but I think the way that it’s finally going to get delivered is not through a conventional television network, but through the Internet. I can’t tell you who the delivery people will be, but it won’t be the traditional route. There’s also the possibility of webisodes, and I think we even have an idea for a terrific Friday the 13th video game.”
SMALLVILLE? So can be we expect to see the adventures of a young Jason Voorhees? Unique. Definitely unique. As fans of the original FRIDAY THE 13TH TV show, we’re definitely intrigued, although that show had literally nothing to do with the film series of the same name. Suckers for short story formats, we say bring it on.
