Director For "Friday The 13th" Reboot?

It appears director Breck Eisner (Sahara, The Crazies, The Last Witch Hunter) is close to signing on to direct the upcoming reboot of "FRIDAY THE 13TH".. The film was set to land in theaters January 2017 - but it's clear that date will not be met..

A few months back producer Brad Fuller has this to say: yes, Pamela and Jason are together in this film, but this is the same Jason we all know and love. He’s Jason; he kills – he kills teenagers. We went down the origin route with the second Texas Chainsaw Massacre film, and I think when you go too deep into a character’s origin, the character stops being scary at some point. I’m not worried about demystifying Jason by revealing parts of his back story, which most of the fans are familiar with.

The script was written by: Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners)..
