Jason returns on Friday, October 13th!
From Bloodydisgusting, "Today Variety breaks the silence and reports that New Line is hoping to release its 12th film in the sturdy Friday the 13th franchise on -- surprise -- Friday, Oct. 13! The kicker is that the studio has launched development of a script about Jason Voorhees' origins. Is this news killer enough for ya? Cause you can expect even more big news soon!"
Also, "It was confirmed a few months back that a brand new Pumpkinhead movie was in the works, but what we found out today from our anonymous scooper is that both a third and a fourth sequel are shooting back to back, possibly later this year in England. Brad Krevoy (formerly of MPCA) is producing the pics. In the first 'Pumpkinhead' a man conjures up a gigantic vengeance demon called Pumpkinhead to destroy the teenagers who accidentally killed his son. Watch this spot for more news soon."
From Thesneeze, "I've always said, "Sure, Jason Voorhees is great at a-killin', but what was he like before he started hacking people apart?" New Line has finally responded with the news of a Friday the 13th prequel in the works, to be released on Friday, October 13th, the very day/date combination the film is based on! Though details are scant, I'm hoping this new film will finally uncover Jason's teenage, awkward stage, when the mask was just to cover acne and a bashful insecurity towards the fairer sex. I'm also hoping it reveals that Jason was beaten up by girls and refused to shower in gym, because then maybe they'll cast me."
