Finally some details, not matter how vague, are starting to come out on the next FRIDAY THE 13TH movie. Speaking to Esquire, producer Brad Fuller has been discussing the film, which is seemingly set to explore just why Jason Voorhees doesn’t stay dead.
On the direction that director David Bruckner is looking to take with the next installment in the fan favourite series, Fuller said, “There’s always been this supernatural aspect to these movies. It defies logic that, you see Jason get killed in every movie, including ours, the 2009 one. And then he comes back and no one’s ever really investigated what this is. So that’s something that I think about a little bit. Like it is supernatural, but what is he? Those are the things that we’re toying with. Nothing has been decided. But those type of things: How does he always come back?”
Fuller added, “People traditionally want to understand exactly how and why things happen, and yet something so odd happens at the end of these movies and no one seems to question it. So people come to the movie with the expectation that the real villain will be killed and come back. And yet we never toyed with that notion… Those are the things that we’re asking ourselves. And we’ll see what comes.”
During the same interview, the producer revealed that the current plan is to start shooting the film this summer and that it will NOT be a found-footage movie.
To be directed by Bruckner, the currently untitled next FRIDAY THE 13TH movie is currently set for a May 13th, 2016 release.
