    Friday the 13th: The Game: The Movie! (fan fiction script)

    Glad those paid off! Those TK deaths are so universal for people who've spent enough time in this game that I think I thought, verbatim, the same thing: "Someone needs to die this way."

    Star Wars IX (without Carrie Fisher)

    I think (hope) Abrams is going to try and course correct.

    Definitely not the only one.

    Friday the 13th: The Game: The Movie! (fan fiction script)

    Definitely the era of fan scripts and fan creations! F13.com just posted an article about a fan script by someone named Chris Gehrt. Since he had a meet-and-greet with Platinum Dunes, I'm assuming he's a repped and/or working screenwriter. Here's the article, with a link to his fan script: http://www.fridaythe13thfranchise.com/2018/07/read-sequel-script-written-for-platinum.html The article doesn't specify who this guy is, but maybe this guy? https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1812751/?ref_=tt_ov_dr

    Next game next movie?

    Yeah, I can't really find anything good to say about his decision.

    Next game next movie?

    That's a fairly apt analogy.

    Next game next movie?

    No, it affects the entire franchise, since all the sequels are derivative works.

    Next game next movie?

    No, the lawsuit is between Cunningham and Miller and rights over the first film, and thus it negatively impacts on licensed content based on the i.p. (including this game).

    Why Jason? Why did he endure?

    I mean, simplistically it's the branding of the hockey mask, and the power of Paramount's marketing. Same with Freddy and his glove. Characters that are easily brandable and recognizable create franchises. Chucky. Annabelle. Ghost Face. Michael Myers. I think all of that is a huge factor, as the marketing creates brand awareness. But the brand LOYALTY (and thus longevity) is from everything else -- from the sympathetic Jason, to the music, to the tone and aesthetic, to the memorable kills -- aka, movies people enjoy, rewatch, and encourage friends to watch.

    Next game next movie?

    Yep. It's literally what's holding it up right now -- a fight over money. But that same money will be what brings it back. Eventually. The timing on all of this is just so ludicrous. Finally get a game that isn't just a half-ass label slap, and this all goes down.

    Next game next movie?

    Possibly but those rights will likely be more expensive to get than cutting a deal with Cunningham.

    Friday the 13th Game Future

    Why would an outside company that has nothing to do with the lawsuit be able to influence anything about it whatsoever? I'm sure Ubisoft and EA are just chomping at the bits for this game. Also, Gun can't just sell a licensed property to a third party unilaterally.
