Hot on the news that the upcoming Friday the 13th reboot will indeed be an origin story that reintroduces Pamela Voorhees, it now seems that Jason's long lost father, Elias Voorhees, will also feature. Writer Aaron Guzikowski (best known for 2013's Prisoners) is hard at work at the script and the film is scheduled for a 2017 release.
As a character that has been conspicuous by his absence in the previous instalments, I think the wild card of Elias Voorhees is just the thing to reinvigorate the franchise and can't wait to see how he factors into the famously close relationship between Jason and his mother.
What do you think of the news? What else do you want to see in the reboot?
