For its part, it would not be unreasonable for Blumhouse to take over the rights and present a new Friday the 13th in the future. The studio specializes in bass horror titles budget and in recent years has presented big hits. Among them the acclaimed Get out, Paranormal Activity Y Sinister, scientifically the most terrifying movie in history.
They also have certain experience in reboots of horror classics, for better or for worse. They took care of the remake of Black christmas, the Invisible Man and recently from Youth and Witches. They also know how to deal with popular serial killers at the height of Jason vorhees. The company is behind the new Halloween trilogy which premieres its second part next year.
Jason's legal battle
Blumhouse could join forces with Stephen King which seeks to create a Friday the 13th from Jason's point of view. But the situation is not so easy. In recent years the exploitation rights of the saga have given way to a great legal showdown. Director Sean S. Cunningham was in charge of the first installment with the script of Victor millers. But they did not expect the franchise to become the success it is now. In recent years Miller has wanted to win more rights in the saga and he succeeded after the first trial.
The future of the franchise is complicated because, although Jason is known for the hockey mask, this item is not entered until third movie. So until there is an agreement between the two parties, no films can be developed with the murderer or they will not be able to use the title Friday the 13th.
