According to The Wrap, the V/H/S co-director and The Signal (2007) writer and director is in negotiations to direct the new Friday 13th film….
There is still no official word on if the new Friday film will indeed be “found footage”, indeed there is still very little official word on anything, but, with Bruckner nearly on board, it is looking more likely.
Regardless of format though, it’s likely that Friday the 13th will be made on a very small budget, especially given the success of other barebones horror pics like Insidious, The Purge and The Conjuring.
Friday the 13th, with Platinum Dunes’ Brad Fuller and Andrew Form producing alongside Michael Bay, is slated to hit cinemas on March 13 (yes, a Friday), 2015.
