New Line Planning New Nightmare on Elm Street?
Robert Englund's agent sits anxiously by the phone.Halloween, there's a new Friday the 13th on the horizon, and Screen Gems has devoted itself to exhuming every available '80s horror flick in its vaults. Left out of all the fun -- until now -- has been New Line's Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
According to a report at Bloody-Disgusting, however, that's about to change. There's been plenty of Nightmare talk for years, of course, but no one's been able to determine exactly what New Line was planning for the series -- everything from a prequel to a Freddy vs. Jason follow-up has been rumored. Well, here's the inside scoop: according to Bloody-Disgusting's source, "New Line is actively developing another Nightmare on Elm Street movie."
Just which movie, however, is still up in the air. From the article:
Everything you've heard before has been scrapped (prequel) and they're back at square one. Ideas are being thrown around without anything solid locked down.
If the report's source is on target, the next Nightmare-related movie probably won't be Freddy vs. Jason 2; as the article puts it, "as of right now, today, this very moment, there are no immediate plans" for a sequel. So what's next for Freddy? Which project would you choose...or do you even care about the stripe-sweatered boogeyman anymore?
