Breck Eisner, who did helm the excellent remake of The Crazies, will take over the Friday the 13th remake. That said, he's not the most inspiring choice with flicks like Sahara and The Last Witch Hunter to his credit also, but at least he'll be working from a script by Prisoners writer Aaron Guzikowski.
Friday the 13th is set for release on January 13th 2017 but that seems really soon. We may see it moved to another date that matches the title. [Deadline]
