The new Friday the 13th reoot is experiencing problems, once again. This time, they have gained Aaron Guzikowski as a new writer, but now the film has lost yet another director. David Bruckner is no longer attached and a new director has not been announced.

There was a rumor the the reboot would be found footage. However Brad Fuller (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), a producer for the 2016 film, has stated that it will in fact, NOT be found footage. I’m very happy to hear this, found footage may be considered a good and cheap, alternative way to film, but in my opinion it’s over used and often obnoxious.
Fuller made this statement back in March:

“I could just say that for a long time we were stalled…” Fuller continues (during an interview with Shock Till You Drop) “…the film was going to be a found footage movie and that was a road that we went down and tried to figure that out. Ultimately, I think Michael, Drew and I felt that we couldn’t figure out, so we kind of jettisoned that whole notion and we had to start over. We’re in the latter phases of that starting over and hopefully we’re getting a script in the next month or two, and we’ll go back to Crystal Lake.”



The release date is up in the air. We should see it some time late in 2016 or early 2017, that is if no other changes are made and a new director signs on soon.
