Producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller Talk Cracking the Tone of New FRIDAY THE 13TH Remake; Reveal MONSTER SQUAD Remake Is Dead

     August 2, 2014


At the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles press junket this weekend, Collider got the opportunity to chat with Platinum Dunes producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, along with the film’s director, Jonathan Liebesman.  While we will run the full interview closer to the film’s August 8th release date, we did want to share an update on what Platinum Dunes will be going into production on next.

During the interview, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller hinted at a possible third Purge film and said that The Monster Squad remake is dead, but they did talk about where they are in working on another Friday the 13th film, which is already slated for release on November 13, 2015.  While Fuller said that they haven’t yet cracked the tone of the film, Form said that they’re working hard on what this version will be, and that they have a director set.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

friday-the-13th-posterCollider:  What is Platinum Dunes got going into production next, film wise?

BRAD FULLER:  Well, it’s called the annual Purge for a reason, so it should stand to reason. 

ANDREW FORM:  We’re not working on a third one yet.  But, we have Friday the 13th for next year.  We’re developing the script.  

I was curious about the status of your remake of The Monster Squad, and where you were at with Friday the 13th? 

FORM:  The Monster Squad, we’re not developing anymore. 

FULLER:  That’s dead. 

FORM:  But, we are working on Friday the 13th for November 13th of next year.  

What made you decide to return to Friday the 13th again, when the last one came out in 2009? 

FORM:  We love Friday the 13th.  We had the best time making that movie.  An opportunity to bring Jason back again, for us, we jump at it.  We just have to tell the right story.  It’s truly about, what is this version?  We’re working hard on that.  We have a great director, David Bruckner (V/H/S, The Signal), and we’re trying to figure it out.  We have to crack that.  

FULLER:  We haven’t cracked the tone of that movie.
