Friday the 13th to be rebooted in 2015

I just can't.

Since the property rights switch between Paramount and Warner Bros. went through, we now have news that yet another reboot (not sequel) of Friday the 13th will be released on March 13, 2015. Conveniently so, on a Friday the 13th in a very crowded release year. 
This news is full of fun little 13-related tidbits. Not only will it be released on a Friday the 13th, but it will also be the 13th film in the franchise. It's a bummer than it didn't come out this year because it's 2013. /sarcasm 

And yes, the last reboot was just released in 2009.

However, this unfortunately isn't very surprising. Like mentioned above, Paramount obtained the Friday the 13th rights after a swap with Warner Bros. which was in exchange for Paramount giving up Interstellar, the new Christopher Nolan film. The current micro-budget horror film trend will most likely apply with this new reboot as it has proven successful with R-rated horror films such as Paranormal Activity, The Conjuring, and the previous 2009 version of Friday the 13th. There are also rumors already that this new reboot will utilize the found footage element, but there is no telling for sure. All we have right now is a release date and assurance that this is actually happening.
