They’re Back: ‘Friday the 13th,’ ‘Freddy vs. Jason’ Writing Duo Team For Horror High

There’s no keeping a good writer down….there’s also no keeping a duo of horror screenplay writers down.  Now the two men who bought us the remake of Friday The 13th and Freddy Vs. Jason are back.  Oh the horror…

Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, the writing team behind the recent Friday the 13th remake as well as Freddy vs. Jason, are developing an untitled horror project at Paramount, says THR.

Details of the pitch are being kept tightly locked up, although it is known to contain a high school setting. Shannon and Swift will now write the script and are attached to make their directorial debut with the project.

Mary Parent is producing via her Disruption Entertainment banner. Cale Boyter is overseeing for Disruption.

On top of penning horror scripts, Shannon and Swift have previously worked on comic book adaptations Hawaiian Dick and Power and Glory, both set up at New Line.
