Despite reports last year that a sequel to 2009’s Friday The 13th reboot was all but dead in the water, producer Brad Fuller has revealed that a script for the film is good to go.

Last year, Fuller – who also produced horror redos of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and A Nightmare On Elm Street – said that Friday The 13th: Part 2 was “dead - not happening”.

Now, though, he seems a little more optimistic. Hopping onto Twitter, the producer offered updates on the big screen fates of Jason Voorhees and Nightmare On Elm Street ’s Freddy Krueger.
