Just read this news from the boys over at Dread Central:
A while back we gave you guys the first word that Paramount were finally laying down plans to get a real Friday the 13th box set out to fans (read it here) and over the weekend the first bit of confirmation came down from the wilds of Kentucky.
While attending The Scare Fest in Lexington, KY, a reporter from Friday the 13th Films caught one of the panels in which a Paramount rep confirmed that a new DVD of Friday the 13th is being worked on that will be fully restored to include all those infamous missing/extended scenes.
Very cool news for Friday fans, of course, and hopefully we’ll be hearing more about Paramount’s plans for the rest of the films very soon!
Here’s the news from Dread Central about that box set:
Our man Andrew Kasch just called in with some very good news for you Friday the 13th freaks out there…
There has been speculation since the Friday the 13th remake came to life again that perhaps Paramount would go back and give us a decent F13 box set. Well, an inside source confirmed for us today that that’s exactly what’s going down! Paramount is working on a brand new, revamped Friday the 13th box set that will hopefully put their first attempt to shame.
No word on any of the features yet, but we do know that there is a lot being planned. Of course the goal is to have it done in time for the remake’s release on February 13th, 2009, but only time will tell if that mark is hit.
Stay tuned for official details as they come in, as well as even more cool Friday news very soon!
Hot damn this is some good news! Good thing I didn’t pay for the box set they have out already, heh. Just sort of fell into my hands.
And now…TATER SACK JASON!
