Paramount Has Pulled ‘Friday the 13th’ and ‘World War Z 2’ From Their Schedule

As of late there seemed to be some rumors swirling around about how production was finally gearing up for the new “Friday the 13th.”  However, it seemed like any hope of a new “Friday the 13th” releasing this year was short lived.

Paramount, in a move that isn’t all too surprising, has pulled both “Friday the 13th” and “World War War Z 2” from their release schedule.  Believe it or not they had announced that “Friday the 13th” would be releasing this year on October 13th.  Meanwhile “World War Z 2” was expected to hit theaters on June 9th.  Given that “WWZ 2” didn’t even have a director it was pretty fair to assume that it’s release date wasn’t long for this world.  “Friday the 13th” is a bit more shocking though as it seemed to be gaining some traction finally and I imagine the turn around on making a film like that isn’t too long.

So if Paramount decides to keep to the iconic Friday the 13th release date it looks like the next potential date will be in April 2018 and then there’s July 2018.  April might be a safer bet as it’ll have less competition, though July would make for a great month to release a movie about a camp grounds killer.

Either way this whole situation has moved beyond frustrating and into comical territory.  It’s insane to think that an entire studio cannot come up with a simple slasher film concept.  Have they truly run out of things to do with Jason?  Stay tuned as we find out together.

        I want another Friday that aknowledges itself as part 13! I want the return of Tommy Jarvis (Corey Feldman), I want Kane Hodder as Jason, I want to see Elias Voorhees, I want to see Camp Crystal Lake covered in ice and snow and of course Harry Manfredini’s score. This is what you NEED for the 13th Friday movie. Period! And obviously R-rated..

        C’mon, people. Its not rocket science..

        Why do they keep pulling the plug on Friday the 13th ? Just release the movie already and let the fans be the judge if it’s good or not !
