If a sale was by any means feasible, of course, Friday the 13th is a franchise that can print money.

Would Horror Inc be willing to sell the rights to Blumhouse or anybody else? Highly unlikely. I suppose they could always be offered a deal even they can't refuse, but Cunningham seems content to let the franchise rot unless he and his company are collecting every last dime the franchise happens to make.

Then the questions is: Why won't Cunninham make a movie? Or can he after this lawsuit business?

He can, but not with any of the elements from the original Friday the 13th script unless a deal can be worked out with Victor Miller for compensation... Something Cunningham isn't very likely to even try since 'sharing' in the profits clearly isn't something he's interested in doing. At the same time Cunningham was trying to get around the copyright laws so he wouldn't have to compensate Miller, he was suing the distributors of the Friday the 13th remake for profits he felt were due to Horror Inc... Either Cunningham is playing one of the most potentially destructive long games in the history of cinema just to make sure nobody but his company profits off the IP, or he doesn't really care if the franchise rots since he had no real love for it in the first place outside of the first film he directed. (Ironically the one he doesn't have full control over anymore) That last sentence is purely my own opinion though.

I think I made a old post about this but I am iffy on them about Friday! Because they gotta get an Original Jason actor for a Blumhouse Friday the 13th film.

Even though Sean started this franchise, he's the worst thing to ever happen to it. I seriously doubt the rights will be available anytime before Sean passes away. Greed is a ugly monster.

I've heard that with the success of other fils put out by Blumhouse, they have no real incentive to do ANYTHING with Friday the 13th or, for that matter, Nightmare on Elm Street.

That makes things worse, if true.
