Friday the 13th rights back with Paramount

Well, the rights to make sequels, that is. Apparently Warner Brothers was so keen to co-finance Interstellar with Paramount, they agreed to relinquish their co-financing rights to make another Friday the 13th film and another South Park film back to Paramount.

There is a catch: Paramount has five years to make the follow-ups.

They should make one with Kane Hodder again. No one that ever called themselves a fan could resist seeing that in theaters.

I have nothing against Hodder, and while I think he was an okay Jason, the movies he starred in were the least enjoyable of the Fridays to me.

The really interesting thing is: Where does this leave the rest of the series on blu?

From what I heard, a boxset is still forthcoming from WB and this deal will not change the distrubution rights that WB has on the existing films. This has been verified via one of their websites when a fan asked about a possibility of a boxset and they said very soon.

Warners still has that distribution deal they inked with Paramount in place. WB will probably put out the rest of the F13 films on Blu to coincide with Paramount's new F13 film debut.

Par is free to make F13 sequels, whether in continuity with the 2009 remake or not. If they don't make a film or two in that 5 year span, the rights revert back to WB and the two will again share 50/50 rights on the franchise.

The rumors I've been hearing is the boxset should be out sooner than the next film. They are already working on it.

http://www.fridaythe13thfranchise.co...rays-news.html

This wasn't the exact article I saw but someone asked for it on the WB FB page for xmas, and they responded like "very likely if you are a good boy" with a wink or something. I'm paraphrasing but I wouldn't be surprised if the boxset is announced THIS year.

*EDIT*

Here it is on blu-ray.com's Friday forum - post # 798

Quote:
Another person on WBShop's Facebook said all he wants for Christmas is 'Friday the 13th 1-8 on Blu-ray'.

They responded with 'You may get that and more if you are good.'

Hopefully the '...and more' means 'Jason Goes To Hell' and 'Jason X'?!

That's a relief - thank you for clarifying!

Kind of an odd deal IMO. I'm surprised Paramount even wants to finance another F13 film. Didn't it take New Line, MTV Films and Paramount to finance the last one? It'd be funny if Paramount would pump out a few sequels in the next five years, perhaps retiring their Paranormal Activity series.

I believe Paramount financed FvJ and Friday the 13th remake because even though New Line had the rights to Jason, they did not have the rights to use all the elements from Friday the 13th I-VIII.

Paramount never co-financed FvJ, just the remake. Kinda actually sad to see New Line lose the rights to Jason (though they still have their Jason films of course. Obviously, duh! Just wanted to point that out. :P ).

Though, I've always assumed since 2002 (I think) Paramount had complete control of South Park. I do know that the SP: BLU was distributed by Paramount AND Warner (with the latter handling international distribution).

Paramount was not involved with Freddy vs. Jason, since that film didn't use any of the story elements from Parts I-VIII (let alone the title). Only until the 2009 remake went into production, that Paramount was brought in as a 50-50 partner because the producers wanted to use the title and story elements from the Paramount-produced films.

The amount of red tape and legal wrangling over a sequel to the 2009 remake is what kept it from going into production. Now that WB is out of the way, Paramount is free to make F13 sequels their way.

I thought they did for some reason but now I do recall some fans saying they felt Freddy got more screentime because it was a New Line production. I wonder how they were able to use Jason's mom in the beginning of FvJ even though that was a story element from Parts I-III.

I hope they bring back the iconic ki-ki-ki-ma-ma-ma score for the next one. I felt it was underused in the remake.

A lot of people will disagree im sure, but they should make a string of these on the cheap, DTV. How hard could it be? The main audience for these doesn't really want to see any variation from the original set structure. Obnoxious kids in the woods taking drugs and getting killed in creative ways. That is it. It doesn't need any name stars. The hockey mask is star enough. Set a budget at 5-8 million per film max and get cracking. Watch the money come pouring in. Seriously, I don't think that it could get much easier. Just no shaky cam found footage BS!!!

I'd be cool with that. It might be cool to make a F13 anthology or something with a few different directors (maybe new ones).
