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."
"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."
"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."
