Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, long attached to write the "Friday the 13th" remake, are apparently on a fast track to finish a script so filming can start in early 2008, according to Shocktillyoudrop.
A Sept. 11 story indicates they were going to start writing once rights issues were worked out.
As for the legal complexities surrounding the "Friday the 13th" prequel, Fuller says, "Iím not an attorney, so I donít understand exactly what it is. But, with one studio, we could have made the movie where he puts the mask on for the first time. With the other studio, we could only do it where he puts the mask on after heís done it twenty-five times. Little things like that make a ton of difference to us. We didnít want to have that limitation. There are millions of little things like that."
Now, apparently, they have been and the film is due to come out in 2009, as reported earlier by Variety.
