New Origin for Friday the 13th Reboot

Mortal Kombat X Celebrates Friday the 13th - Jason Vorhees Revealed

A new origin story will take hold of another beloved horror killer in the upcoming Friday the 13th movie. According to an interview between The Reel Word and Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes, Fuller has stated that the writer, Aaron Guzikowski, will take Jason Voorhees in a brand new direction.

Aaron’s story has great characters…You kind of have to understand Jason Voorhees, so we go back and we kind of started over and work our way forward.”

When asked about if the movie will be an origin story, Fuller stated:

“Origin-ish, but it’s an origin that no one has seen before. Obviously Pamela’s there, but it’s a little bit different from what you’ve seen before.”

The earlier rumor about the reboot being a found footage film was shot down by Fuller because that is not the way he sees that existing in Jason’s world.

Friday the 13th is scheduled to release on January 13, 2017.

A lot of studios are rebooting many classics and the reboots that I have seen did not live up my expectations such as Rob Zombie‘s Halloween. But I am willing to give this one a shot.
