Could Jason Voorhees be the next slasher to reappear on the big screen? According to a report from Deadline, Vertigo Entertainment and LeBron James’ SpringHill Entertainment are in talks to bring Friday the 13th back to the silver screen. In fact, meetings with writers and directors are already happening.
A lot has been happening lately in the Friday the 13th realm, and for fans of the franchise things looked bleak. There was the ugly legal battle between screenwriter Victor Miller and director Sean Cunningham over the rights to the beloved slasher franchise. During that time, the hit video game Friday the 13th: The Game continued to chug along and release amazing DLC. As the developers were poised to make their latest release (which included the Jason X version of Voorhees) they were notified of the lawsuit and were told they were no longer able to produce any further content.
