Ryan Reynolds To Star In Clue Reboot

CW Developing Friday the 13th Series

Jason's Creek or Kill-more Girls?

By Brandon Wolfe

The CW will take a break from its usual teen dramas and repeat-pillaging of DC Comics to head down to Crystal Lake. The network is source developing a series based on the Friday the 13th film franchise as a horror/crime thriller. Steve Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle, creators of the NBC series The Pretender, are developing the series, which intends to reimagine slasher Jason Voorhees in a more grounded framework. The story will center on a detective's search for his missing brother, which brings him into contact with a serial killer long thought to be dead, but whose killing spree has resumed. The series will also update Crystal Lake from a remote wooded area into a bustling town with a dark history.

A source says: "It's like the town from Jaws. It's like Amityville 20 years later, and someone says, 'I think the shark is back.' Everyone is like, 'Oh, s--t. We can't have the shark back, we finally grown up as a town and we have all this mythology, but it ruined our city.'"

In a more meta take, the series will reveal that the Friday the 13th film series was based upon these real-world crimes. "We're going to basically acknowledge that the people came to this town after these killings happened, and they made all these movies. And now the town has a stigma. Our show is, here's the true story. Here's the real story of Jason. It's been taken and exploited. So we have the young crowd who doesn't know who he is except for what they've seen in the movies. The older crowd is afraid of him. We have a lot of people who have scars from him."
