According to The Risky Business Blog, New Line Cinema and Platinum Dunes are going full steam ahead on the next installment of Friday the 13th.
Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, the writers that brought us the recent Friday the 13th reboot, are again drafting the script. The next film is being called "a follow-up."
Since the newest version took aspects of the first 4 films, the producers are finding that they don't like the other 6 sequels too much.
Marcus Nispel might be directing this new version. Jared Padalecki and Amanda Righetti might also be starring in the new film but based on their TV work schedules that remains to be seen.
At present "there is no green light" but should one happen the plan is for it be out in 2010.
