A New Friday The 13th Movie Is Coming, Thanks To LeBron James

Friday the 13th

And arguably the world's best basketball player is in the running to produce it.

Bloody Disgusting is exclusively hearing that James and his Springhill Entertainment is now in talks with Vertigo Entertainment to produce a reboot of Friday the 13th. As BD notes, "This news comes on the heels of original Friday the 13th screenwriter Victor Miller prevailing out of a lengthy legal battle in which U.S. District Court Judge Stefan Underhill granted summary judgment in favor of Miller and against the producers, Horror, Inc".

Wimbledon to introduce final set tie-breakers from 2019
Many had called for a change after the men's semi-final this year featured a final set which lasted almost three hours. At the same tournament, Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal 10-8 in the fifth set to reach the final.

Following "Halloween's" massive success at the box-office this weekend, another slasher franchise is looking at a rebirth as Roy Lee's Vertigo Entertainment and LeBron James' SpringHill Entertainment are in talks to acquire the rights to a new "Friday the 13th" movie.

The project is reportedly still in the early stages, and at this point there isn't a writer or director attached to the proposed reboot. There was also some legal hiccups involving the ownership of Jason Vorhees, the masked psychopath who appeared in the sequels, but was absent from the original film. James and SpringHill, as previously reported, already have the upcoming Space Jam return under their belt. That makes it the biggest money-making debut ever for a horror film with a female lead, and the biggest debut ever for any film with a female lead over 55. "While the latter is appealing, Miller now has the USA rights to Friday the 13th, which include the locations and characters within the story".
