Yesterday, horror remake producer Brad Fuller (Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre) engaged in a bit of conversation with one of his fans on Twitter regarding the possibility of a Friday the 13th sequel. Last year, after the reboot earned more than $100 million dollars worldwide, it was clear that Platinum Dunes was interested in making another one. It would fit with the motif of the long-running franchise — because without being able to spawn several sequels, what really is the purpose of a Friday the 13th movie, anyway?

Back to Twitter — where Fuller responded to a question about further Voorhees ventures by saying that the perennial slasher was “dead,” and so was his franchise. When questioned by another fan — one who was clearly outraged at the lack of sequel planning, Fuller responded by saying “it’s not my call. I would drop everything and make it today if they wanted it.” By “they,” he’s likely referring to Paramount, the distributor who put the money behind the Friday the 13th remake.

It is safe to assume that Paramount would be waiting to see how the upcoming release of Nightmare on Elm Street goes before saying yes to a Friday the 13th sequel. But dead? There must be more to this story.
