Friday the 13th is an upcoming American slasher film written and directed by Oz Perkins, co-written by Victor Miller, produced by LeBron James, Roy Lee and Miller. Produced by New Line Cinema, Vertigo Entertainment and Springhill Entertainment, it is rumored to be a soft reboot and direct sequel to the 1980 film of the same name, ignoring the events of all other films in the franchise, and the thirteenth installment overall.

Development began in 2009 with Warner Bros. Pictures planning to release a sequel to the 2009 reboot in August 2010. The project was in development hell for many years until 2015, when Paramount Pictures announced it was producing a new film for the franchise, which would explore the origins of Jason and Pamela Voorhees. However, after Rings's critical and commercial failure in 2017, the studio canceled the project and after that, overhears a copyright dispute between the original film's screenwriter, Victor Miller, and the franchise co-creator, Sean S. Cunningham. The rights to the franchise reverted to New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. in 2018, with LeBron James producing a new film in the franchise.

Production[edit]

Shortly after the 2009 reboot's theatrical release, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form expressed an interest in producing another Friday the 13th film, citing the enjoyment they had working on the reboot.[1] On October 1, 2009, Warner Bros. Pictures announced that it planned to release the Friday the 13th sequel on August 13, 2010.[2] Subsequently, on December 10, 2009, Warner Bros. announced that it had pulled the sequel from the August 13, 2010 release slot and listed its release as "TBD" (to be determined). Warner Bros. also announced that Damian Shannon and Mark Swift were penning the sequel.[3] On April 21, 2010, Fuller announced on his Twitter page that a sequel to the 2009 remake was no longer in the works, declaring it, "dead — not happening".[4] In a later interview, Fuller explained that the 2009 reboot was the result of a joint effort between Paramount and New Line Cinema, as both owned portions of the Friday the 13th franchise. With a down economy, both studios were limiting the films they produced each year, opting to produce films carrying lower risks and higher rewards. Accordingly, the companies put Friday the 13th Part 2 on hold in hopes that they would move forward with this next installment when the economy bounced back. Form explained that neither studio would walk away from the sequel's production to allow the other to move forward as the primary producing house, each studio concerned that its players would look like "idiots" should the sequel perform well without its involvement. Form and Fuller also mentioned that the Friday the 13th sequel may be a 3‑D film, should it ever again be green-lit for production by the studios.[5]

On February 1, 2011, Fuller announced via Twitter that Shannon and Smith had completed writing a script for the sequel. Fuller reported that he was ready to begin production, but that New Line Cinema was not.[6] On June 5, 2013, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Warner Bros. had relinquished its film rights to the Friday the 13th series to Paramount as part of a deal that would allow Warner Bros. to co-produce Interstellar.[7] One week later, Derek Mears revealed that Paramount was working with Platinum Dunes to make a new installment "as fast as possible." [8] David Bruckner was set to direct the next installment of Friday the 13th.[9] After altering the release date numerous times, Paramount set the film for a Friday, May 13, 2016 release date.[10] In March 2015, it was announced that TV writer Nick Antosca would write the script.[11] On October 20, 2015, The Wrap reported that Paramount pushed back the film's release date to January 13, 2017.[12] On December 3, 2015, it was announced that Aaron Guzikowski was negotiating a deal to write a new script, but that Bruckner, who had purportedly left the project in 2015, would no longer be directing.[13] On May 31, 2016, Fuller revealed that the reboot would be an origin story for Jason, and his mother would be in the film.[14] On August 8, 2016, Variety reported that Breck Eisner was in talks to direct the reboot.[15] In September 2016, Paramount pushed back the reboot's release date from Friday, January 13, 2017 to Friday, October 13, 2017.[16]

On January 27, 2017, it was reported that the reboot's working title was Friday the 13th: Part 13, Platinum Dunes was looking for someone to play a young Jason Voorhees, and production would begin in March 2017, slated for a Friday, October 13, 2017 release date.[17][18][19] On February 6, 2017, it was announced that Paramount officially canceled the project, and Paramount assigned the October 13, 2017 release date to its upcoming film, Mother!.[20] On October 10, 2017, Shannon and Swift revealed the title of their proposed sequel, Friday the 13th: Camp Blood – The Death of Jason Voorhees.[21] The rights to the franchise are slated to revert to New Line/Warner Bros. in 2018.[22] However, Victor Miller, who wrote the original Friday the 13th screenplay, asserted that Horror Inc. derived its current copyright to the screenplay from Miller's transfer of copyright to Horror Inc.'s predecessor-in-interest, the Manny Company. Miller sent a Notice of Termination to Horror Inc. on January 26, 2016, purportedly reclaiming his rights to the screenplay and the content contained therein through termination of the transfer of rights he had formerly made to the Manny Company.[23]

Original film producer Sean S. Cunningham claims that Miller wrote the screenplay for Friday the 13th as a work-made-for-hire for the Manny Company.[24] Under copyright law, an employer is considered the statutory author and copyright holder if a work is made in the employee's scope of employment. If, as Cunningham contends, Miller wrote the screenplay as the Manny Company's employee, he never held a copyright to the screenplay to transfer or reclaim.[25] A lawsuit seeking the parties' declaration of rights was filed in a federal court in Connecticut.[26] On September 28, 2018, Miller won the rights against Cunningham.[27] Cunningham appealed, the appeal was withdrawn due to technical reasons, and then reinstated by the deadline of April 12, 2019.[28]

By October 2018, LeBron James, through his production company Springhill Entertainment alongside Vertigo Entertainment, is in talks to co-produce the next film.[29] In following month, screenwriter Clint Ford has written the prequel screenplay for the franchise titled Friday the 13th: The Beginning, as reported by Ain't It Cool News.[30][31] In July 2019, Tom McLoughlin, writer and director of Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, revealed that he authored a spec script for a sequel film titled Jason Never Dies.[32][33] McLoughlin confirmed the film would have served as a direct sequel to Jason Lives, ignoring the other films in the franchise.[34]
