News: Platinum Dunes Scraps Friday the 13th Thanks to Rings Poor Reception

It was just a few days ago that we were reporting on the awesome news that the new Jason Voorhees mask was going to be designed off the one used in Friday the 13th Part 3. Sadly, the studio has pulled the plug on the upcoming film. The new version has officially been yanked from the production schedule with no other updates available. This has been on the table and off the table in recent years with it finally coming to fruition for an October release. Sadly, that's not the case anymore. 

It looks like Jason will be resting for a while longer as Platinum Dunes is blaming the poor reception of Rings for their decision to cancel this cinematic venture. 

Sad Jason is sad.
