Friday the 13th sequel coming!

Friday The 13Th-01The hockey-masked Jason Voorhees just cannot be killed.  He is set to be revived once again now that Paramount has re-acquired the rights to the beloved zombie slasher.  In a deal with Warner Bros., Paramount has acquired the rights to Friday the 13th and South Park in a move to share profits on Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar.

Essentially, Warner Bros. traded Friday the 13th and South Park to make a poop ton of money on Nolan’s next film.

Ok, so now that the business stuff is out of the way, what does that mean for Jason?  Personally, I hope it is not a sequel to the 2009 reboot but a straight up numbered installment in the franchise.  Yes, I want to see Friday the 13th XI.  No Freddy this time, even though Freddy vs. Jason was awesome-sauce.

While I wouldn’t be totally against a sequel to the 2009 reboot, I would rather see old school, CGI-less gore in a traditional film in the franchise.  Am I being old fashioned?  Probably.  But that’s what I want.    What do you think?  Do you think that a Friday the 13th film will fly nowadays?  Speak your piece below!
