The machete has been put back in the sheath.
Less than six weeks before the start of principal photography, Paramount has shut down the latest chapter in the Friday The 13th series. It was slated for s theatrical release on October 13th.
Production on the film was scheduled to start in mid-March.
The exact reason for the move is unclear, although it very well could have to do with the poor performance of the studio’s latest horror movie, Rings. The film cost $25-Million to make, and bowed to a dismal $13-Million over the weekend.
A source close to the film would only say that "production was not ready to go at this date."
Friday The 13th was to be a reboot of the first 1980's slasher movie that proved to be a major cash cow for Paramount Pictures, spawning 11 sequels that followed the seemingly unstoppable hockey mask-wearing killer known as Jason Voorhees.
