A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Reboot Still Happening!

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

It has now been three years since we found out that New Line Cinema had hired ORPHAN screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to write a second reboot for A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.

With the 2010 remake being very poorly received, Johnson McGoldrick set forth to try and re-invent the franchise. In the time since then he has earned writing credits on THE CONJURING 2, AQUAMAN, as well as eight episodes of THE WALKING DEAD. In addition he became a consulting producer on THE WALKING DEAD. He also wrote THE CONJURING 2, and is working on a new version of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, but things have been very quite on A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET reboot.

Johnson-McGoldrick recently spoke to GameSpot about AQUAMAN, and during the interview he revealed that an A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET reboot will still be happening one day.


"(The reboot is) still happening. Nothing is percolating just yet, the Conjuring Universe is sort of first and foremost on their Horror burner. Everybody wants to see Freddy again I think, so I think it's inevitable at some point."

It is good to know that the idea is till kicking around. Another attempt at a reboot would be very interesting. With Robert Englund stating that he thinks that he has one more ELM STREET film in him, it would seem that he would be heavily considered for the role of Freddy.

Heather Langenkamp has stated that she is waiting to face off with Freddy one more time after Jamie Lee Curtis' big return to HALLOWEEN.

Only time will tell what will happen with this project. We will keep you updated on this story as we hear it.
