Friday the 13th is a cancelled horror film that was meant to be released on October 13, 2017, and was meant to be the 13th installment in the Friday the 13th franchise. Initially assumed to be a sequel to the 2009 Friday the 13th reboot, reports now suggest that it will be a second reboot, rather than a direct sequel to its 2009 predecessor.

The film was still in development. Paramount has picked up the full rights to the franchise,[1] and was rumored to be released in March 2015, but this date was pushed back to November 2015 [2]. Again the release date has been pushed back, now until early 2017 [3].

On February 6, 2017, the film was cancelled because of the poor box office performance of Rings.




Unknown due to early cancellation.

Trivia Edit

  • New Line has given the rights back to Paramount Pictures, with word that the studio is interested in bringing life back to the franchise.
  • Producer Brad Fuller confirmed that the last script involved Camp Crystal Lake re-opening to the public and Jason would indeed be in a snow setting for a portion of the film.
  • Despite interest from the producers to pursue a sequel, it seems that it wasn't enough move the project forward, as Platinum Dune's Brad Fuller was recently quoted saying that it's now "dead" and "not happening".
  • It's rumored that the film may be in 3D.
  • Originally aimed for an August 13th 2010 theatrical release.
  • There's talk that there may be a segment in the film where Jason is pitted in the snow.
  • It's said that this sequel will not take any cues from previous F13 sequels and will offer a completely new storyline.[4]
  • It was previously said that the film will incorporate found footage and "answer the decades-old question of why slasher Jason Voorhees can't be killed." Apparently the found footage aspect has been dropped.
