‘Friday The 13th’ reboot sequel script completed

Producer Brad Fuller tweets progress report

Brad Fuller, producer of 2009’s Friday The 13th reboot, has revealed that a script for a sequel to the film has been completed.

Last year Fuller – who as co-owner of the company Platinum Dunes produced re-works of horror classics The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and A Nightmare On Elm Street – said that Friday The 13th: Part 2 was “dead – not happening”.

But now he has now announced via his Twitter page, Twitter.com/bcfuller, that the film may still get the green light after all.

“[Damian] Shannon and [Mark] Swift wrote a great script,” he wrote. “We are ready to go, when [studio] New Line is ready. But as of yet, they are not ready.”

Despite being a commercial success, the rebooted Friday The 13th received almost universally unfavourable reviews – yet not quite as bad as those for 2010’s A Nightmare On Elm Street, another Platinum Dunes reboot.

The producer also used Twitter to scupper the suggestion of a sequel to that film.

“As for Freddy, as far as I know, there isn’t even talk of writing another script,” he wrote.
