Crystal Lake has remained relatively calm since the theatrical release of the new Friday the 13th film was postponed to January 13th, 2017, but that changed today when changes to the movie's creative team burst through the surface.

According to TheWrapDavid Bruckner (The Signal, "Amateur Night" segment of V/H/S) is no longer set to helm the new Friday the 13th movie.

Meanwhile, Variety reports that Paramount and Platinum Dunes have set their sights on Aaron Guzikowski (The Wolf Man reboot, Prisoners, Contraband) to pen a new draft for the film, with negotiations currently underway.

Prior screenplay drafts for the new Friday the 13th movie were worked on by Nick Antosca (Hannibal TV series) and Richard Naing and Ian Goldberg (The Autopsy of Jane Doe), respectively.

Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more details, and keep January 13th, 2017 circled on your calendars for the return trip to camp.
