Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Back in 2010 Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema teamed together to bring us the Platinum Dunes produced reboot of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. The film was directed by Samuel Bayer and starred Jackie Earl Haley as Freddy Krueger. Needless to say, the majority of fans were not impressed with the final product.
Then just last month we learned that yet another Elm Street film could be in the works in some type of shape or form.
Robert Englund, the man that originally brought Freddy to life, recently did an interview with Red Carpet News and offered his thoughts and opinions on the ELM STREET remake as well as the rumored new film saying:
"Well, I left America before this really sort of hit the tweets, and my only knowledge or gossip is that apparently they approached Tuesday Knight – she’s the young actress from NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART 4 who replaced Patricia Arquette. I was trying to think ‘what does that mean?’ They can’t possibly be remaking NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET part 1 again – they just did that. I think they may be remaking NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART 3.
This is all speculation. PART 3, DREAM WARRIORS, is the most successful film, and the most popular of the franchise. And it would make sense for them on a kind of NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET cinematic pun, to hire Tuesday to play the mother in PART 3, Patricia Arquette’s mother, because that would mean she’s playing her own mother. Obviously Tuesday’s older now, it kind of makes sense. So that’s my theory.
They’re not gonna bring me back for Freddy, but perhaps they would bring me back in a cameo as the elderly dream expert at the local clinic for dream analysis or dream therapy or something like that. Maybe they would be smart or wise enough to capitalize on that."
Whether or not these possibilities come into fruition, it is nice to get some thoughts from the man himself. Many fans around the world believe that Englund should be cast as Freddy once again as it will be difficult to find a credible replacement. Whatever happens, we will continue to keep you updated on the situation.
