Look out, y’all: Collider is bringing you some mad scary scoops. First, it looks like our own Steve “Frosty” Wientraub has gotten a nice little update on the long in development Friday the 13th movie. Here’s what we know: Friday the 13th will NOT be found footage. The script they are working from is Aaron Guzikowski’s. Breck Eisner is directing. Casting will begin at the end of this year and they expect to shoot in Atlanta in spring of 2017. The movie will take place at Camp Crystal Lake and it will be a period piece. The producers have said the film will be a “hard R.”

Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg/Robert Zemeckis favorite David Koepp revealed that he has been tapped to write a draft of The Bride of Frankenstein for Universal. While speaking to Frosty about his latest film Inferno, Koepp said that it is one of his favorite scripts he has written in years and the message behind the film addresses many issues while also reimagining the Frankenstein story.

Just days after it was announced that Krampus and Trick R Treat director Mike Dougherty would co-write Godzilla 2 for Legendary Pictures, rumors swirled that he would direct the monster-filled blockbuster, too. ScreenCrush is reporting from two reliable sources that pending Legendary’s approval of Dougherty’s script, he will direct the film that will allegedly lead into the King Kong/ Godzilla crossover film, allowing for a shared universe of giant monsters.

Jeff Howard, co-writer of Ouija: Origin of Evil, Oculus and Before I Wake alongside writer/director Mike Flanagan have an update for all of you anxiously awaiting the remake of the teen slasher movie I Know What You Did Last Summer. First thing’s first, here’s what we know about the project so far: Sony says the film is a “high priority” which was originally slated for a 2017 release date. While Howard couldn’t give an update on the status of the film, he was able to preview the content of his and Mike Flanagan’s take by saying that they pitched something gripping and that it would tell a new story.
