We’re all kind of marveling at how long it has taken to get a new Friday the 13th film off the ground, but hey, shit happens right? At least we know it is coming and right now our friends over at FridayThe13thFranchise.com are reporting that the film is in the casting progress and gearing up for a spring shoot!
They’re reporting that pre-production is currently under way in hot spot Conyers, Georgia, which is 24 miles 3ast of Atlanta.
“The reason that the production in Conyers is interesting is that Platinum Dunes is scheduled for shooting in that town starting in March and lasting through to May. That leads us to believe a good majority of filming should take place in that area.
”Another interesting bit of information about Conyers is that it is just under 12 miles away from Covington, Georgia, where Jason Lives: Friday The 13th Part VI was filmed!”
It’s not much, but at least it’s something. The Crazies director Breck Eisner is at the helm and working from a script by Prisoners‘ Aaron Guzikowski. Earlier last year Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form promised the film would sort of be an origins tale.
We shall see.
