you spoke too soon. this has been given an axe to the face and hopefully just for now... cancelled!
with Paramounts disappointing box office on The Ring sequel 'Rings' they have taken Fri 13th off the schedule! not fair, Friday the 13th has a bigger fan base while probably not many people saw The Ring (2002) in the first place and wouldn't bother seeing this one.
and after many years since Paramount got the rights back for 5 years they have only just now got the ball rolling. a director has been chosen, script done and ready, they put it out there they are looking for young twins to play young Jason. not only that but they were gonna create a hockey mask close to Part 3's design. they were actually gonna start filming next month, and by the sounds of it, it was gonna be a reboot/prequel/sequel most likely set in the 80s. don't know what they are thinking, there's no way this would make less then Rings! they just need to make movies with smaller budgets these days, it can be done.
with October 13th not far away, perhaps Paramount got scared as they pushed back World War Z 2.
hopefully it's not axed altogether but pushed back to April next year, giving them more time to make it better.
