Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
It looks like A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET could be picking up some steam as a couple of months ago we learned that the original film had its U.S. rights returned back to the original creator per the Copyright Act, similar to what happened with FRIDAY THE 13TH.
Of course, that creator is the late Wes Craven, now represented through his estate, and it’s just been that involved parties are actively hearing pitches for new movies.
At this time the specifics are not known, but it is suggested that the estate is looking to revive the franchise with a new installment, whether it be a remake, prequel, sequel, series, or some other kind of spin-off.
It is unknown at this time whether the late filmmaker’s camp has partnered with any potential distributors yet or what a deal might look like with New Line Cinema, who still owns the international rights at this time. The possibilities are quite exciting to consider nonetheless.
We will keep our ears open and continue to keep you updated on this story as we hear it.
