On Friday, we brought you the news that the 13th Installment of the Friday the 13th Franchise was to being filming in March, targeting an October 13th release date. To recap:
Bloody Disgusting… exclusively confirm[ed] that casting is and has been underway on the next Friday the 13th, which is being produced by Platinum Dunes for Paramount Pictures with a target to release on Friday the 13th, October 2017. In addition, our friends at F13Franchise are reporting that pre-production is currently underway in hot spot Conyers, Georgia, which is 24 miles East of Atlanta.
Yesterday, BD dropped a bunch of new info (based on casting announcements) that makes one thing certain: The next Friday the 13th movie will definitely be a Voorhees family affair. If true, there can no longer be any doubt that we’ll be getting some sort of origin story for Jason.
Not only will the new Friday the 13th feature a young Jason Voorhees. Jason’s mother, Pamela, is going to make some sort of appearance in the new incarnation, as will his father, Elias.
