It has now been 13 years since the release of the last Friday the 13th movie, with the franchise trapped in a messy legal battle ever since.
Sean Cunningham, the original movie’s director, and Victor Miller, the original movie’s writer, have been fighting over who gets control of what.

It was back in 2018 that a judge ruled that Victor Miller owns the rights to the original Friday the 13th screenplay in the United States, a decision Cunningham has failed to overturn in the years that have followed. Cunningham, however, owns the character of adult Jason Voorhees, introduced in later sequels, so the two eventually will have to work together on this one.
