On Friday the 13th, the producer expressed the possibility of a new film on "50-50" after a legal battle

Tomorrow will be Friday the 13th, the 28th time “Unfortunate Vacation” has arrived, since the last movie Friday the 13 The feature film series was released. To recap, screenwriter Victor Miller, who wrote the screenplay for the first film in 1980, after the film series has been in legal limbo for several years, filed a copyright termination notice for the first film’s screenplay (a section of copyright law). piece) allowing some creators to get the rights back to the work after a 30-year period) and won. This spawned several lawsuits, primarily about ownership of the rights to other pieces of the iconic horror franchise, and has resulted in no film being made since. How are you feeling now? Apparently flip a coin.

Speaking in a new interview with CNNSean S. Cunningham, who first directed Friday the 13, produced the entire series, and remained on the opposite side of Miller through all of the lawsuits, said that Jason Voorhees’ chances of making a new movie in theaters are almost identical. “I think it will definitely return,” said the producer. “But I can’t tell you whether it’ll be back this year or next. Will Jason be back in theaters? Right now, it’s 50-50 … Both sides are really dug in the foxhole. They’re not leaving.” Throw a grenade, but I don’t think anyone will call for peace talks.”

The legal battle is still going on. At the heart of the ongoing arguments is the position of the murderer Jason Voorhees. As fans remember, Miller’s screenplay for the first film only featured Voorhees as a child, while his mother, Mrs. Pamela Voorhees, was the real one who committed the murders in the film. Voorhees also famously did not wear his signature hockey mask until the third film in the series, which Miller did not write. This leaves the question up in the air, who owns adult Jason Voorhees? Who can use a hockey mask? Will Voorhees’ introduction to Miller’s screenplay as a child leave him with the option of making him an adult in a sequel of his own, should he choose? It all continues to be decided.

Mark Toberoff, the copyright attorney representing Miller, also spoke with CNNsaying: “We may now license a remake, prequel or sequel to motion pictures … provided such films do not use any additional copyright elements … Miller now owns the copyright to his screenplay, including Sequel rights are also included, but Jason can’t be portrayed as any older than the first film? That doesn’t make any sense. Jason had a lot of presence in Miller’s film. In fact, Mrs. Voorhees channeled Jason. And, of course, all the sequels were drawn before.” Toberoff noted that he and his client have now been able to make a TV series in the vein of twin Peaks And Bates Motel About the community of Crystal Lake and “How Jason Became Who He Is.”

At the heart of the continued cessation of any movement by Miller or Cunningham is that Miller’s victory gave them basic rights Friday the 13 Screenplay in the United States only. The Cunningham-owned company Horror, Inc., which has long created the franchise, still owns all rights to the series outside the US, meaning that any attempt by Miller to do something with the series will only be available in the US. could be released, something almost no studio would be interested in doing. As it stands now, the franchise is at a standstill, but Cunningham’s own bid that the chances of a new film are 50-50 should give fans a little hope.

Since that time Friday the 13 Fellow slasher franchisee has been dormant Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the Scream, candy Man, and many more that have flourished in theaters, on streaming, and as a television show. The biggest surprise of all this is that with the upcoming release halloween ends slasher franchise that Friday the 13 Ripped off in a big way will be in his 13th feature film while Jason will be stuck in stagnation in twelve films.
