I’m terrible at watching TV shows. Just awful. New ones often come around that I really want to check out, and before I know it multiple seasons have come and gone. Seriously—it feels like time travel at times.
Being a huge fan of pirates (I even enjoy the Pirates of the Caribbean movies most people aren’t so fond of), Black Sails on Starz was one such show that immediately piqued my attention but got away from me. This is thanks in part to its fairly brief maiden voyage (season one is only eight episodes). But thankfully I was able to check it out on Blu-ray, and with season two having just kicked off recently, I’m happy to finally be on board.
Recently I joked that Universal could simply remake cult classic The Monster Squad as the solution to bringing their Classic Monsters together for the planned Avengers-style reboot.
But a remake of the movie has actually been in the works for the past few years or so, with a pair of writers hired and Rob Cohen, who previously made the rebooted Mummy sequel The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, set to direct.
Now, thankfully, comes word that the Monster Squad remake is officially dead in the water.
It’s being reported that producers Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form of Platinum Dunes may have found their director for the next installment in the Friday the 13th franchise.
It’s being reported that David Bruckner has entered into negotiations for the movie, which has already has a cozy Friday the 13th release date in 2015 set. Bruckner wrote and directed 2007’s The Signal, and wrote and directed a segment of the found footage horror anthology V/H/S titled “Amateur Night,” in which some guys meet some girls at a bar and bring them to a hotel where things don’t go quite as planned.
Is there a chance that Jason Voorhees, the legendary horror movie slasher icon and face of the Friday the 13th franchise, be left out of the next movie in the series?
In a recent interview, Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller talked many things, including a sequel to The Purge, the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the next Friday the 13th.
When asked about where things stand on the next movie in the Friday franchise, Fuller didn’t seem positive that the movie would in fact be using Jason at all…which would certainly be an interesting decision to make. Sure, Jason hasn’t been the focus of every movie in the series (his mother was at the center of the original, and Part V: A New Beginning featured an imposter), but he is the face of the franchise, and doing a new movie without him sounds awfully risky.
