Last week we reported that Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller tweeted the news that Friday the 13th Part 2 in 3D was "dead" and today he elaborated on the sequel's demise in more than 140 characters. Bloody-Disgusting recently spoke with Fuller who talked more about why the sequel isn't happening.

"Right now it's not happening," Fuller told Bloody Disgusting. "Nothing's happening on it...[but] for a movie like that, the door is always open. Obviously we'd really love to go back to Crystal Lake, and we've been very lucky on our last two films working with Jackie Earle Haley and Derek Mears [the new Jason Voorhees]. And being able to go back-to-back between those guys, and then to go back to Derek, I would love that."

He continues, "You know, it doesn't feel to me like - and this isn't specific to any studio - it doesn't feel to me like the studios are making horror movies in the same way that they were making them three or four years ago where every studio had a couple horror movies in production or that they were prepping. I think if you look at the calendar for this year, there's probably four or five horror movies, and they're all either remakes or sequels to something else. So it just doesn't feel like there's the same appetite at the studio level. And we'll see how the appetite is at the audience level when Nightmare comes out."

Fuller also spoke to Bloody-Disgusting about several of their future projects in development, including Monster Squad and The Birds.

"We're all systems go on Monster Squad. We're meeting with writers every day on that, trying to pick a writer to write that...The Birds we're still trying to figure out."

Fuller also spoke about future film projects The Butcherhouse Chronicles and Ouija.

"The Butcherhouse Chronicles right now feels like it's just kind of...I think that we have a great script, but it doesn't feel like there's anything happening on that right now."

"Ouija isn't really a horror movie per se, it's definitely more of a big action-adventure movie along the lines of...I gotta be careful what I compare it to. But you know, it's like a big action-adventure movie. And that script...I've read a couple pages of it, it seems good. I think we're getting the full script in the next month. And that's a very exciting project for it, cause it's a much bigger movie, and it gives us an opportunity to try something we haven't done before...There are definitely horror elements, because it's about Ouija and what happens from an Ouija board, but it's a much bigger film. I would call it an action-adventure with horror elements."

Friday the 13th comes to theaters May 13th, 2016. The film is directed by David Bruckner.

Monster Squad was released in 2011.

The Birds is in development . The film is directed by Diederik Van Rooijen.

Ouija was released October 24th, 2014 and stars Olivia Cooke, Ana Coto, Daren Kagasoff, Bianca A. Santos, Douglas Smith, Matthew Settle, VIVIS, Robyn Lively. The film is directed by Stiles White.

    Actually the first Friday the 13th to be in 3D was the original part 3. They'll do anything to hype up another ripoff.

    I wouldn't mind seeing more films featuring horrors biggest icons if they came up with some new scenarios for them. I am tired of watching "Gossip Girl" get cut up.

    Jack-asses,f*cking losers,mindless drones.That movie was great and now you choose to screw it up!This one of the movies that should have been left alone!But NOOOOOOO.

    Okay.Better now.

    Glad the sequel to the Friday the 13th remake isnt happening.The first one was so terrible I got up half way through it and left.I pray that it and Jason stays dead for a very long time.

    The Monster Squad is classic. I really don't want them F'ing with it, but and update might not be bad. Torn on this one. F#@K!!! @Papa_Panda : Serious? Is there a Connect Four movie? I'm sure you were all sarcasm and if not, OMG... my 10yr old has better ideas than Hollyweird. Beware what you wish for... "Battleship" is actually on it's way.
