Friday the 13th Legal Dispute Could Be Over, but Don’t Expect New Movie Just Yet

December 30, 2021

There are many reasons why Friday the 13th shouldn’t have spawned nine sequels, a Nightmare on Elm Street crossover and a reboot, from poor reviews to repetitive content. However, it seemed that nothing could stop supernatural killer Jason Voorhees from chopping up an endless collection of young expendable teens. So it doesn’t quite compute that the last time we saw the machete-wielding maniac was all the way back in 2009 when the franchise was given a reboot that was actually slightly better received by critics than the original when it released in 1980. The reason behind the lack of further sequels lies in that age old dispute of who owns the rights to the characters and who makes the money off of them. Now it seems that at least part of the dispute could finally be coming to an end.
