New Friday the 13th Movie Still in the Works
When I ask Fuller what to expect from a new Friday the 13th, what one does producing a new slasher after 35 years of Jason antics, he stresses his desire to keep the core values intact. It will involve Jason Voorhees. It will involve kids having sex and smoking weed. They will be at camp. Which is a big one for Fuller, a former kid camper. "Some movies you do for some reasons and some you do 'cause you just love the source material. And truly this is something that we all love here." Fuller plans to shoot Friday the 13th at the end of the summer because the weather is still nice and it's easy to take over a camp for cinematic slaughtering purposes.
Seems like the people involved are committed to getting another Friday the 13th movie made and making it right. It also looks like they may try to explore the nature of Jason’s immortality, a subject that has been tackled before with various results. Hopefully they don’t decide to make Jason a body-hopping demon worm… (Via /Film.)
Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Crimson Peak’ Trailer
A young woman (Wasikowska) is romanced by a man (Hiddleston) whose sister (Chastain) seems to have secrets, and maybe some real issues related to their cloistered upbringing in a giant old house. And judging by the way this trailer ends, there are seriously freaky reasons for their problems.
In my opinion, del Toro is at his best when he’s working in the horror genre. Crimson Peak looks like it should be pretty great.
Neill Blomkamp Says There’s A ‘High Possibility’ He Makes An ‘Alien’ Movie After All
On Tuesday, I met with Blomkamp, who is promoting Chappie (the full interview will run closer to release), at his New York City hotel room and asked him about this art. As it turns out, there’s a very real possibility that Blomkamp may actually be making a new Alien movie, and it sounds like the ball is very much in his court.
Neill Blomkamp, please make this movie. (Via /Film.)
