New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. have announced that they are moving forward with the sequel to 2009's "Friday the 13th" by setting up a release date. On Thursday, October 1, the studios revealed that they are aiming to bring "Friday the 13th Part 2" into theaters across America in summer of 2010.

The exact schedule for the release of this thirteenth installment in the series will be on August 13, 2010. On that particular date, "Part 2" will be up against Screen Gems' horror "Priest", which deals with a warrior priest who disobeys church law by teaming with a young sheriff and a priestess to track down a band of renegade vampires and get his kidnapped niece back.

The date has been teased by producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form earlier. "If it does get greenlit, and we are able to mount it in a reasonable amount of time, we will have the film opening on August 13th of 2010," they told MovieWeb at the time.

As for what this sequel will offer, the producers shared, "Jason is going to have a snowball fight. Look, for Friday the 13th II, which is a totally different film than A Nightmare on Elm Street, it needs to look different. It has a totally different feeling. We want to have fun." They added, "We want to present something that audiences haven't seen before. One of the things they haven't seen before is Jason in the snow. They haven't seen that before. Our goal is to bring them things they haven't seen."

I just realized something here, the remake part 2(if it happens)is going to be part 12 not the 13th installment. I keep reading everywhere that "part 2" is #13, but no, learn how to count ppl!!! Thanks

I saw both remakes of Friday and Nightmare. I think Friday wasn't all that great, but Nightmare was okay, but they totally needed Robert Englund to play his role!! Having Jason run or have a snow ball fight is the gayiest thing I've ever heard of!! We need Jason to kill more and not give a f@#k who it is!!!

well i agree with u dj trance when u put it that way but eventualy when he gets killed more in i hope 2 god future films he will be all dead like because the way u said he was more human in the 2009 1 he was also the very same in the origanall part 2 but as the films progressed thats when he got more dead walking no im not argueing with ur point but just correct me if im wrong ?

i was thinking of a cosmic event bec. it's a 13th film but a "ParII" what r we doing rewrite the legend of Jason , but hey it's your project, don't upset the fans of the movie , but i do like the 2009 *Friday the 13th. makes Jason more human than a walking dead. of the past Fridays, Happy Friday the 13th tommow!!!

well 2 be honest i thaught there was 2 much change in jason in the remake but dont get me wrong they mmaintained alot of his original style so yea it would be a gud idea that they have jason in the snow but i hope there is much more killing in the next 1

i think jason shouldnt run. it makes it more terrifying if he doesn't coz it like even if you fun you can never get away from him. and i think he should be even more humanised, as people could think that it actually happens it makes it more terrifying.

I've watched Jason since I was a little kid. I loved them back then and the new version was awesome! I think it is better when he runs and throwing the axe was definitly my favorite part of 2009 Jason Friday the 13. Its good that there is a refreshed version of Jason, I'll definitly be in the theater this summer! I can't wait

After this one, they need to get to work on a Freddy vs Jason vs Myers film. Robert Englund could be Freddy one last time. People have been wanting these three to go at it for a long LONG time. Freddy would use Myers similar to how he used Jason in FvsJ and all is going to plan until Jason crashes the party.
