In a recent interview producer Brad Fuller talked about the Friday the 13th sequel, here is what he had to say…
On if we will see the next film set in the snow: How’d you hear that? No, I can tell you this, the movie itself will not take place in the snow. I don’t want to sit in Winnipeg with him for two months in the snow. We did that once, I don’t want to do it again.
Will Friday the 13th go 3D?: It’s certainly been talked about. The financial ramifications of doing a movie in 3-D on a budget that size, ’cause it’s not like they’re going to say to us, “Yeah, well, why don’t you make a sequel and here’s twice as much money.” It doesn’t go that way. Our movies are virtually all the exact same budget and I guarantee you if we make that movie it’ll be the same budget as the original. And we’ll say, “Hey, do you want to do it in 3-D” and they’ll say, “Yeah, let’s talk about it” and then when they see that it’s six or seven million dollars more they’ll probably opt out unless something that we are not expecting happens. I suspect it will not be in 3-D, although we’d love to make a 3-D horror movie. We’d love to do it; they just don’t throw that money our way.
But is the Movie actually a go at this point?: Here’s the other problem, we don’t have a release date, we don’t have a green-lit movie. Let me be very clear… Friday the 13th Part 2, we don’t have a script, it’s not green-lit, and we have no idea what’s going to happen. If it gets green-lit and we’re able to mount it in a reasonable amount of time, we would hope the movie would open on August 13, 2010.
