Victor Miller, the writer of the original film that started the franchise, will serve as an executive producer.

In case you need reminding, Crystal Lake is the setting where everything started for young Jason Vorhees. The tragic events at the lake ultimately lead him to be a killing machine that expands through time and even space.

The original “Friday the 13th” came out in 1980 and was made with a budget of $500 thousand. It went on to gross $60 million.
