I don’t know about you guys, but I like the Friday The 13th reboot that popped up back in 2009. With a meaner, stronger Jason who didn’t lumber around like a drunk uncle, the film had a certain sense of menace in the air. It was also filled to the brim with references to the older movies, which shows just how much love and care went into reviving the Camp Crystal Lake killer.
It wasn’t enough though, and it instead killed Jason more effectively than any of his other movie deaths. Still, you can’t keep a good Voorhees down, and it looks like Jason will be back for more, only this time he’ll be on a smaller screen. Currently being written by Bill “Terminator” Basso and Jordu “Avatar” Schell, the series will re-imagine “Jason in multiple time periods,” according to Fridaythe13thfranchise.com:
“Sean Cunningham confirmed interest from the CW in regards to pickup for the tv show. According to him, the basic premise focuses on the REAL city of Crystal Lake, and the effect that the serialized films had on its real life counterpart. This allows them to reimagine Jason in a more grounded reality, as the films would be based off the real life killings that took place at the Camp. (ie, both the Hockey Masked Jason and a more serious backwoods inspired killer will be making appearances throughout) “
That’s kind of neat, and a fresh start for Voorhees that actually feels inspired. Combining that with actual murder cases, might be…killer.
