In what amounts to the least surprising news in the history of premature movie release dates, Paramount has pulled Brad Pitt’s World War Z sequel from its release schedule — along with the latest Friday the 13th reboot from producer Michael Bay.
Browsing: FRIDAY THE 13TH
Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time, Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born, and Will Ferrell’s Russ & Roger Go Beyond are among the projects that have been selected to receive tax credits under the revised California Film & Television Tax Credit Program.
Looks like it’s back to the drawing board for Paramount Pictures’ newest installment in the Friday The 13th franchise, as reports are insisting that the studio is being rather indecisive regarding their next move.
The writer of NBC’s “Hannibal” signs on for the upcoming reboot.
A recap of the week’s TV news!
Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form, have moved their production company, Platinum Dunes, from CAA to WME. They were at WME before moving to CAA a year ago, but returned due to the increase in project budgets with their first look deal at Paramount Pictures.
Platinum Dunes, who have the reboot/remake fever, are currently rebooting TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, adapting OUIJA, and have done very well for themselves with previous reboot/remakes A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, FRIDAY THE 13TH, THE HITCHER, THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, and two new installments in THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE franchise.
Platinum’s biggest budgets to date have been in the $30 million range, and every film they’ve done has made it’s money back, two of them doing so opening night!
