Friday the 13th reboot is dead

News has emerged that Paramount pictures have managed to do what dozens of teenagers couldn't, they've killed Jason Voorhees! The upcoming reboot was due to begin principal photography in the next couple of weeks but has now been axed (pun intended). There is speculation that a poor opening for the "Rings" movie could be responsible for the move but no official explanation.

You could argue, and I would, that 11 sequels is probably enough for one franchise (the most recent reboot being less than 10 years ago) and the iconic character doesn't need any more outings, freeing up resources for original horror ideas. Then again, Jason Voorhees will never die!

What do you think of the decision? Did you want to see another reboot of the series?
