On Monday, February 6, 2017, Paramount Pictures announced to the world that they were cancelling the long gestating reboot of their beloved franchise, FRIDAY THE 13TH. The next day, the full and complete screenplay to that film was delivered to Necronomicast Headquarters by anonymous, unseen sources! Now, one month before the movie was going to begin principal photography, Brian and Doug present a full, no-holds barred, reveal and discussion about the 13th film that never came to be. We trace the twisted road of development hell that bogged down the efforts to bring Jason Voorhees back to the big screen.
On this episode, Nick Antosca’s and Aaron Guzikowski’s scripts are dissected, discussed, compared and contrasted. We discuss the decisions by Paramount Pictures that led us here today…looking at the dark, abandoned, and empty campground of Camp Crystal Lake.
We draw upon our relationships with those directly involved with the production to bring you insight you won’t find anywhere else. WHAT WAS PLANNED FOR THE 14th MOVIE??
You might have heard some spoilers or read some tidbits online, but we present to you, the horror fan, the complete discussion that you deserve. Exclusive to THE NECRONOMICAST!
