Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes production company is currently developing the next Friday the 13th movie with Aaron Guzikowski set to write. The latest Friday the 13th news is that they will tell an origin story with Jason Voorhees’ murderous mom Pamala Voorhees. This new film will be the 13th film in the Friday the 13th movie franchise.
Attached to write the screenplay is Aaron Guzikowski, who earned himself wide acclaim for writing the 2013 Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal-starring thriller Prisoners. Guzikowski handed in a draft, Fuller and co. had a look at it, loved what they read and decided to start moving forward.
"Aaron’s story has great characters…You kind of have to understand Jason Voorhees, so we go back and we kind of started over and work our way forward."
So, is this an origin story?
"Origin-ish, but it’s an origin that no one has seen before. Obviously Pamela’s there, but it’s a little bit different from what you’ve seen before."
