What direction will the new Friday the 13th film take?
CraveOnline recently interviewed producer Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes at the TV Critics Association press tour this week. Below are some highlights from Fuller on some upcoming horror projects.
Fuller on The Purge 2: "The sequel to 'The Purge' delivers on the promise of the original in that we're not staying in the house. It's not a home invasion movie. This is you're out in the streets with people purging and a group of people who get stuck in the middle of it and have to get from point A to point B."
Fuller on the next Friday the 13th movie going forward and being set for a March 2015 release: "It's a matter of getting a script that we all love, that we feel like we can execute in a great way. That's always the battle, isn't it?"
Fuller on if they would look at using a found footage angle for the new film: "It's something that we're looking at, yeah. I never know because it depends on the story and what the story is. It's been reported, that's something that we're looking into, but I can't tell you definitively that that's what the movie is."
Will Derek Mears return to play Jason Voorhees: "I don't know, because I don't know if we're going to have Jason, I don't know which Jason we're going to have. I can tell you this: I love Derek Mears, I love working with him and he's a dream so we'd be lucky to have him."
Fuller's update on the Ouija movie currently in production: "Today is day 17 out of 25. We're shooting it here in Los Angeles. That is a fairly low-budgeted movie. It's in the Purge-ish range. It's the story that you think it is. It's the story about a group of kids who take out a Ouija board and start playing a game, and all hell breaks loose... In our movie, the Ouija board is a communication device. Our kids tap into something horrible and the Ouija board is the way that the entity comes in and is going to have to go out."
