Jason Voorhees is nevertheless alive — at minimum in Stephen King’s mind.
The writer a short while ago stated he’s mulled composing a novel from the standpoint of Voorhees, the seemingly immortal slasher character from the “Friday the 13th” horror film franchise.
“The best novel strategy I under no circumstances wrote (and most likely by no means will) is I JASON,” King tweeted Sunday.
The “first-man or woman narrative” would comply with Voohees’ “hellish fate” of getting to be killed at Camp Crystal Lake about and in excess of once again, only to be resurrected each individual time, King wrote.
The character was born in 1980, with director Sean S. Cunningham’s original “Friday the 13th” film.
It was adopted by 11 sequels, most just lately a 2009 remake by the exact title, starring Jared Padalecki and Derek Mears as Voohees.
That flick integrated part of Voohees’ origin tale, but the 72-12 months-previous novelist’s plan would be advised solely from the iconic villain’s viewpoint.
Horror followers shouldn’t cheer just nonetheless.
King adopted up that “Just contemplating about the lawful thicket a person would have to go via to get permissions tends to make my head ache. And my heart, that as well. But gosh, should not another person inform Jason’s facet of the story?”
Even now, the author added that “Blumhouse could do it as a movie,” referring to the generation business guiding horror films like “Paranormal Exercise,” “The Purge” and “Halloween.”
The pitch has by now received some on the web assistance, with comic Patton Oswalt tweeting: “I want this novel Ideal NOW.”
