Our pal Stax at FilmForce is reporting today one of the oddest and intriguing rumors I've heard in a really long time. According to their sources, Quentin Tarantino is in negotiations to write and direct the next FRIDAY THE 13th movie currently titled THE ULTIMATE JASON VOORHEES MOVIE (likely just a temp title). I had heard New Line was planning something big to replace the failed sequel to FREDDY VS. JASON but had no idea they were thinking about Tarantino! Or that Tarantino was thinking about them! Nothing is known about the project at this point other than it would be a "quickie" that would film later this year and would be a joint-venture between New Line and Paramount. FilmForce contacted Tarantino's agent at William Morris who would only say that the director had "not yet" been offered the job. But to be offered the job in the first place would mean that there is a job to be offered, no? Just try to wrap your head around the concept of a Tarantino written and directed Jason Voorhees film... My mind can barely comprehend the possibilities! Now if this rumor had come from anywhere else, I'd probably write off in about a half-second but Stax is no cub reporter and I have no reason to doubt his journalistic chops on this story. You can read the full story for yourself at FilmForce here. As they say in the real news world, developing!...
If this thing works out I am gonna be so happy can you believe it!!!
I have Batman Begins coming out then Superman Returns and hopefully a new ULTIMATE Jason movie. ALl I'll need then is a Nightmare on Elm Street prequel and my life will be complete.
