Producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form revealed that last month that they had hoped to start shooting the reboot of Friday the 13th by the end of this year. Brad Fuller recently sat down for an interview with Esquire where he revealed that the script is still being worked on. In the article, he previous shot down rumors that it will be a "found footage" style movie (inline with movies like The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity) and said that they're aiming for a budget somewhere between The Purge's $3 million and their 2009 reboot's $20 million budget.

"You can't do a great kill quickly. It takes time and the blood levels. You know, every time there's a drop of blood you have to change their wardrobe and shower people off. You can't rush that to get it right."

Actor Derek Mears played the iconic killer in Platinum Dunes' 2009 Friday the 13th reboot, but it remains to be seen who will play Jason Voorhees this time around. At least with the movie going into a full production we can all rest assured that this beloved horror franchise won't be ruined by the likes of cell phone video footage, and bad handheld shots of Jason peeking around trees. Are you as relieved as we are to hear this won't be a found footage movie? Chime in.
