Tarantino Not Attached to "Friday the 13th" Sequel
t is quite a rare occurrence for me to actually become pissed--and I mean pissed as in slamming my fist on the computer desk and growling in anger--as a result of reading some recent movie news, but Quentin Tarantino has made the inner, ultra-obsessive nerd in me very, very angry, and me no like. You see, recently I reported on Quentin Tarantino's possible involvement with a new Friday the 13th film. The rumor was, as they say, a fanboy's wet dream, but about two days after first reporting the glorious rumor, my hopes for a fresh, new, and truly unique entry into the Friday the 13th series were squelched like a puny human under Kong's foot, as Empire Online asked Tarantino himself whether or not his involvement with Friday was true…and the answer sucked. Here's what Quentin said:
"What's happening with Friday The 13th? Nothing at all! It's a complete lie. I like Jason and everything, but I've no intention of directing a movie! New Line talked to me about it, but it was a complete fabrication, that article. I would love to do a horror film. I'm just saying it's not going to be Friday The 13th…"
The only positive thing that could come out of this is that Tarantino is at least hinting at making a horror film. But damn…what a letdown.
