Bloody Disgusting is reporting that New Line is moving ahead with its planned sequel to Freddy vs. Jason. They have been trying to get a sequel into production for a while, and even tried to throw Ash and Michael Myers into the mix at one point.
MTV, Paramount and New Line Cinema have teamed up to remake Friday the 13th. It will be hitting theaters on February 13th, 2009. This has reinvigorated New Line to start developing a sequel to Freddy vs. Jason, entended to ride on the coattails of this latest Voorhees endeavor.
No script is in place, and with the writers' strike currently going on, it may be awhile before Freddy vs. Jason 2 gets made. You would think that, since New Line also owns the rights to the Friday franchise, they'd throw Ice Cube in there as well.
Freddy vs. Jason was released August 15th, 2003 and stars Robert Englund, Ken Kirzinger, Monica Keena, Jason Ritter, Kelly Rowland, Chris Marquette, Brendan Fletcher, Katharine Isabelle. The film is directed by Ronny Yu.
