Kane Hodder Talks About The Friday the 13th Lawsuit

Jason Voorhees | Published on the august 6th 2021, 6:55 am | 2321 Views

During a panel that was showcased at Flashback Weekend in Chicago, Illinois, the Legendary Horror Icon Kane Hodder himself has made his personal comment on the legal problems that the Friday the 13th franchise is facing. Hodder is hopeful that someday a Friday the 13th movie will be made but isn’t too hopeful about the situation that is still being faced. Kane Hodder had always explained to fans that there is a lot of amazing content for the Friday the 13th the Video Game that can’t be released due to the lawsuit. He also wants to see another Friday 13th movie being made and released to the fans, whether if he stars as Jason or not since he has openly stated he is a fan of Friday the 13th series long before his introduction in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood thanks to the casting role of legendary special effects artist and director John Carl Buechler.

The stuntman/actor himself had this to say during his panel:

Kane Hodder

With all the legal problems with the franchise, the Friday franchise, I don’t know if it’s ever gonna be cleared up. And it’s unfortunate because it comprises the game because there’s a lot more content that we’ve done for the Friday game that may never make it now. And let alone another movie ever happening. I’ve always thought there should be at least one more film because that would be the 13th. How do you do Friday the 13th 12 and then quit. I’d love for it to be resolved, but I’m not that hopeful that it will be. So, who knows. We may have seen the end of Jason in the films. I don’t know. I hope not but even if it’s not me I’d love to come back one more time but, even if it isn’t me, as a fan I’d love to see one more film.

This lawsuit didn't just affect the movies and the game but likely even figures (See our Part VII Neca Articles), TV shows, and etc it froze the franchise in its tracks.
