Tag: Friday the 13th
LeBron James apparently loves getting scared--and scaring--just as much as the rest of us. It has been confirmed by Bloody Disgusting that LeBron James' Springhill Entertainment and Vertigo Entertainment are in talks to produce a reboot of Friday the 13th.
Friday the 13th (2009) is fairly unique among slasher franchise reboots. As opposed to Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), this film is well regarded among fans of the originals. It wasn't a great movie by any means, but then again neither were the originals. The reboot did everything it set out to do: it was a pretty decent Friday the 13th film. It boiled down to a bunch of irritating teenagers in their mid-twenties getting all stabbed up by a guy in a hockey mask, with a satisfying amount of gore and nudity along the way.
We all love that big loveable oaf Jason Vorhees, don't we? In the post-Scream world we live in today, the Friday the 13th series just comes off as wonderfully quaint. But what if he were to wield a machine gun?
For those who don't know, there's been a little legal rumble regarding who owns the Friday the 13th movies. As is to be expected, this as spilled over to affect the gaming world.
