TV is the New Remake: Is a New Friday the 13th Show in the Works?

Sean Cunningham is doing a lot of talking about the Friday the 13th series and FEARnet got some quotes from the man about the new film that’s in development as well as a potential new series.

“There will be another Friday the 13th, which will probably get shot in the spring,” he told the outlet.  “If it all goes as I would like, it would then be released at the beginning of 2015.”

What can we expect from the new film?  “It won’t be a continuation of [the remake's] story, though. It’ll be a fresh story.”  Then he went on to gab about a potential new TV series – which is no surprise considering how many properties are making the leap to the small screen (I talk a bit more about this in this editorial).

“I think there will also be Friday the 13th: Crystal Lake Chronicles, which is sort of a Smallville. We’ve been on-again off-again with that for years and there are a bunch of great stories to be told, but I think the way that it’s finally going to get delivered is not through a conventional television network, but through the Internet. I can’t tell you who the delivery people will be, but it won’t be the traditional route. There’s also the possibility of webisodes, and I think we even have an idea for a terrific Friday the 13th video game.”
