Friday the 13th series creator, Sean Cunningham, had a LOT of things to say about the future of Jason Voorhees the other day. He sat down with Fearnet, and talked about what fans can come to expect in the next five years.
Cunningham mentioned that we should hopefully see another film in the early part of 2015. Yet another reason to make 2015 the best year for movies ever. Adding Jason to The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: Episode VII, and another Hunger Games.

He also said that there was a possibility of seeing Jason facing off against the Dream Master, Freddy Krueger.
“I think the chances are good” for an eventual Freddy vs. Jason sequel, the filmmaker explained. “I think it will ultimately be a marketing concept. Right now, I think the audience would have to start getting bored with the Friday… movie by itself or the Freddy movie by itself. I don’t think it’s going to happen in the next short period of time.”
“The other reason that I think it’s a possibility is that we spent so much effort in trying to find a way to get the two of them together in a movie that was action-packed and unpredictable that we had lots of material that was unused,” he said. “ It becomes possible to use it, or at least basic ideas or structural ideas that are already in place. We don’t have to start from scratch.”
Cunningham also is working on a television series entitled: The Crystal Lake Chronicles, and a video game.
