Paramount Sets Date for Next Friday the 13th Film!

Friday the 13th posterA new Friday the 13th film is indeed coming.  And Paramount has confirmed this by locking in a release date of March 13, 2015.

Yes, that's a Friday the 13th.  (The 13th also falls on a Friday in February and November of that year.)  And no, an official title has not been revealed (will it be Friday the 13th 2?  Friday the 13th: Part 2?  Friday the 13 with some sub-title attached?)

We learned in June that Warner Bros. relinquished the rights to the franchise and gave them back to Paramount.  The studio had five years to get a new entry in theaters before those rights reverted back to WB.

There are no further details other than that.  We know Platinum Dunes will be producing the film.  But there is no director and there are rumblings of the producers looking for a "found footage" approach.  

We'll keep you posted as more comes in.
