  2. Here's the most interesting piece of that article:

    Now why would Paramount WANT to get involved again? They figure they have no horror franchises of their own anymore so they want to play "indian giver"! I don't get it.

    I think Paramount still owns the rights to the title "Friday The 13th" which is why all the New Line movies are called Jason something.
    I'm sure they're kicking themselves for giving up the Character and seeing NL have success with him as well, so they probably want back in.
    All they need to do is put out the uncut boxset of the first 8 films if they want to get paid, but they're too dumb for that. The "we don't put out unrated dvds" arguement doesn't hold water anymore as they have put out plenty since last saying that.
    If I was New Line, I'd say "fuck you" to P, but they must think the F13 title would be worth it in box office returns if this is all true.

    I agree but maybe it was New Line who wanted to have a retrospect at the beginning of the new film of all the previous films so they had to attach Paramount's name.

    Ahh yeah, execellent point Mok.
    Would've been nice if they had done that for the "Many Lives Of Jason" doc. on the Jason X dvd. Seeing clips of Jason Goes To Hell and Jason X when they were talking about part 2 kinda sucked.:)

    I wish they would forget about everything after part 3 and start over with a new group of teens in the woods getting hacked up in interesting ways all over again. It's such a simple fucking formula and it works. I could watch a million movies like this as long as I get to see naked chicks in the woods, blood and jason.

    that is false. it has been stated numerous times that NL owns the title, they just choose not to use it. the film is supposely a remake of the first few F13th films, thus Paramount's involvement.

    I agree that any news is good news. I'd be willing to see anything Jason related even it was crap. Kinda too bad that New Line didn't distribute the classic 8. We'd have a better chance at seeing uncut versions and better special features.

    Numerous times where? I heard this as well, you're the only person I've ever heard say the contrary. I honestly can not see from a marketing standpoint dropping the f13 title at all. Where/who is your source? I'm just curious as I thought the newline purchase of the jason character only, was fact, not speculative.

    go over to the f13 boards: http://www.fridaythe13thforum.com

    it's been talked to death over there. anything and everything f13 is talked about in great detail (kind of scary actually...lol).

    For other proof, grab out a copy of the F13 boxset and check the copyright at the bottom of the dvd sleeves:

    Friday the 13th tm is a trademark of New Line Productions, Inc.

    It does. Not on the back of the sleeves like you'd think, but under the credits of each film on the inside. It also says it on the discs themselves.
    So much for my theory, it must be Mok's theory about using footage from the first 8, or NL is just hedging their bets. Of course maybe they have to Paramount back in for this so NL can get in on something else.

    Thanks for clearing that up RX.

    Fucking weird, I use to go to that site alot when i was a kid. Those bitches are crazy, so I honestly, do not even go in there anymore. I'll take your word for it tough. Do you have any theories on why they dropped the f13 title? Or is there a general one?

    I suspect they may have dropped it because the series wasn't doing so hot by part VIII anyways? Maybe they thought the title became unlucky for them and wanted to try a new angle? Just speculation on my part.

    They need Paramount because they want to remake scenes from the earlier films. New Line owns the name and the rights to make new Friday films, but can't use any of the old scenes.

    I wish they were doing a true sequel with a cool montage from the old movies like they did in parts 4 and 7. But I can live a "re-imagining", as long as there is a bas-ass Jason, lots of blood and tits and some more stupid teens to kill off!

    And if they can make Jason scary again, I'll really be amazed.

    I always thought that Cunningham owned the underlining rights to the film. Thought I heard that in a commentary. Could be wrong. I don't care what studio is involved. As long as they make it, and bring something new to the story
