The next instalment of a franchise that has already produced 12 outings is currently in the earlier writing stage and is rumoured to be set for a 2014 release, so lets take a look at the rumours currently doing the rounds for Jason's next appearance.

Firstly the film could be a prequel that involves Pamela Voorhees, Jason's Mother being beaten and raped whilst pregnant which leads to the birth of Jason near Crystal Lake. The beating means that Jason as we've seen is deformed. After starting work at Camp Crystal Lake Pamela moves on the site with Jason who gets picked on by the other kids. Jason eventually drowns in Crystal Lake and I think we can all guess what follows.

The other possibility is that the film is a follow on from the 2009 reboot and it seems that Derek Mears who donned the famous hockey mask in 2009 will do so again this time around. Another possibility is that the film will be set in the winter and that it will not be filmed in 3D.

Corey Feldman, who appeared the both Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning and The Final Chapter has thrown his hat into the ring by stating that he would like to reprise his role as Jarvis and also direct the new movie.

Feldman said:    
The idea is something we have been brewing for a few years. Its something I thought up, maybe, ten years ago. Then the fans came to me. They said, “Hey, we want to do this, what do you think?” I said, “I think it’s a great idea.” They
said, “We saw your interview where you were talking about it, and now we want to really get it going.” So, we took it to the studio. Now we are in the political arms of the studio. We will see what happens. It is something where I have been
talking to the original writer, Barney Cohen, about it. He wrote the original Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter script. And we have talked to the original producers of that script, and the original director. It has gone through the pipeline. We will see where it lies.”

This is certainly something that we are going to follow and we will bring you any significant updates when they arise.
