A "Friday the 13th" film set during the wintertime has been rumored for half a decade at least. The idea is a very cool one: Jason strikes partiers at Camp Crystal Lake during the snowbound months, given a new look and feel to the activities without changing the setting altogether.
Well, a snow flurry of reports from the set of the currently filming "Nightmare on Elm Street" remake confirm that the sequel will be set in a snowy Camp Crystal Lake. Rumors of a potential 3D sequel have also been poo pooed with Platinum Dunes execs saying it would be too expensive.
Hopefully the sequel will be more of a straight ahead "Friday the 13th" film -- not a remake, just an "F13" movie. And the snowbound concept is excellent because it's never been done before and it isn't as elaborate or ridiculous as sending Jason into space.
