Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller took to the Twitter machine this weekend to provide updates on Friday the 13th Part II, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2, The Monster Squad, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Despite director Marcus Nispel successfully rebooting the Friday the 13th franchise back in 2009, in April 2010 Fuller tweeted that the project was dead.  Today, Fuller tweets that screenwriters “[Damian] Shannon and [Mark] swift wrote a great script. We are ready to go, when new line is ready. But as of yet, they are not ready.”  As for Nightmare 2, Fuller says there isn’t even talk of writing a new script. That’s weird because in May 2010 there was talk of Warner Bros. green-lighting at 3D sequel and Fuller said “Freddy always has a story to tell.”  In his tweeting today, Fuller explained that studios aren’t interested in R-rated horror films and want tentpole films instead.

Hit the jump for what Fuller had to say regarding Monster Squad and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

In June, we reported that Mark and Brian Gunn would write a remake of The Monster Squad with Rob Cohen (Stealth) attached to produce and direct.  Fuller says “monster squad is being written and he hope to have a script in the next few weeks.”  As for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we reported in May that Platinum Dunes was producing a live-action reboot of the franchise.  In August, Paramount hired Iron Man screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway to pen a re-write that would be ready by October 1st.  It looks like that didn’t work out as Fuller tweets that “Tmnt is coming along. We are working On the script and I hope to have many more details for you in 4 to 6 weeks.”
