We are ok with this.

Confirming rumors that have been speculating since its announcement, Producer Brad Fuller has revealed that the sequel to the reboot of the franchise of Friday the 13th will not be found footage, regardless of initial speculation. He elaborates:

“That was a road that we went down and tried to figure out,” Fuller has said. “Ultimately, I think Michael (Bay), Drew (Form) and I felt that we couldn’t figure that 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.” 

Friday the 13th was released in 1980 and has grown to become one of the most successful slasher films of all time. It spawned 10 sequels and was rebooted in 2009.

Production is expected to start soon for a release date of May 13, 2016 (- and yes, that’s a Friday.)
