Jason is back! Studio CONFIRMS new ‘Friday the 13th’
right after the producer Sean S. Cunningham given a clue, it seems that New Line Cinema has confirmed that we will indeed have a new film in the franchise ‘Friday 13‘, that the project is already being developed.
It was seen that the studio posted on its Instagram account a cellphone screenshot with the following notification: “Jason Voorhees wants to send you a message!”. Already in the caption of the publication, it is written: “Oh or. What do you think Jason Voorhees wants?!”
Remembering that New Line distributed the last four films of the franchise, starting with ’Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday‘ (1993). However, due to a legal dispute involving the rights of Jason Voorhes, a new film has not been produced for thirteen years. But it seems, a solution has been found.
The last film in the franchise was released in 2009 and stars Jared Padalecki. Despite efforts to revive the franchise, the film was a critical failure, recording 26% of approval in Rotten Tomatoes and collecting only $90 million at the worldwide box office.
