The “Friday the 13th” sequel was initially declared dead back in 2010, however Paramount Pictures have taken over the rights according to a recent report from Shocktillyoudrop.com. The production studio regained full rights to the film on the condition a sequel is made in the next five years.
Adding to the exciting news, horror fans will be pleased to hear that the upcoming second installment will use “found footage” similar to “Paranormal Activity”, another horror series set at Paramount. This will be an interesting angle to this already established horror franchise.
I suppose you will need more than one camera due to the huge body count and somehow the entire ordeal needs to be captured on film. Unless they strap a camera on Jason to experience the killing spree first hand. Who knows, we will have to wait and see what Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company can come up with?
Michael Bay was one of the producers on the “Friday the 13th” movie reboot released in 2009. The film was considered a financial success, finishing in 2nd place grossing $91,3 million worldwide in the horror franchise which boasts with 12 big screen releases in total.
