Friday the 13th Sequel in the Works

Jason Voorhees is making another trip to the big screen; sources have stated that New Line and Platinum Dunes are making a sequel to the recently released “Friday the 13th” reboot. They have also stated that Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, who are the ones who penned the reboot script, are working hard on the beginning stages of a new script.
People who are working closely on the project have said that it won’t be a sequel as much as it will be a follow-up, which I have some reservations about.
First, I think it might be a little difficult to get back Jared Padalecki and Amanda Righetti and those two actors are key to make a follow-up story to work. You might think what are they doing, well they’re rising stars and they are both on hit TV shows, Jared is on “Supernatural” and Amanda is on “The Mentalist” and I think they’ve already done the Friday thing and would want to try different things in their off times from their shows. I could be wrong though and they both might want to really do another Friday the 13th movie.
Now the box office has been kind to “Friday the 13th” it opened up first with a whopping $43.6 million and has grossed $60 in domestic and $18 Million in foreign putting its worldwide gross to $79 Million.
I’m looking forward to another Friday the 13th movie and you can read my review of Friday the 13th (2009) right here on this blog, just scroll down or hit the link under movie reviews.

Good article James. Amanda would want to do a new F13 is the producers writer her a good part.
The experience was solid making the movie and the success of the project is clear. Also, wasn't Amanda very good in the movie? I thought her acting was the best.

Yeah she was the best actor out of the group. I really hope that her and Jared come back for another one. I'm also very interested to see where they would take their characters in another story.

I would hate to see jared taken away from supernatural, and the guy does deserve a break...
