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.
Last summer we learned that New Line Cinema was planning on taking A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and giving it yet another reboot with "the studio going back to the drawing board, working to create a remake worthy of the original." ORPHAN scribe David Leslie Johnson was hired to pen the script.
Since then, all has been silent on the project but one person is certainly voicing his opinions on some Elm Street possibilities. The original Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund, recently spoke with Florida Today on his idea for a possible sequel to A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET saying:
"If I was in control of my own "Nightmare on Elm Street" movie I have an idea I would have liked to see. I thought it would be great if the children of previous victims, or just kids who grew up hearing stories about Freddy Krueger, were each haunted by their own version of Freddy Krueger. Kids who grew up hearing stories about this Freddy Krueger guy and the awful things he did envisioned him in their own way, and that is the version that begins to haunt them. Some people may picture him as stout, another might envision him as tall & thin, another with a different hat, or a different sweater. He could have different gloves, or even a glove with small razor blades as referred to in the first movie. It would be neat to see very different interpretations of Freddy Krueger based on the child’s vision of who or what Freddy was to them. After all, each person’s subconscious would picture him in a totally different way."
That is a fine idea for a sequel no doubt about it. At this point in time, it is unlikely that we will ever see Englund take on the role of Freddy again, but we can certainly continue to have hope for such a thing.
Regardless of anything we will bring you more on the next ELM STREET movie as we hear it.
