Good news, purists.
Despite getting to wear the skin-piercing glove, doesn’t sound like Jackie Earle Haley’s incarnation of Freddy Krueger is going to be the one the ‘kids of the future’ will know and remember.
Platinum Dunes’ Brad Fuller says while sequels to most of their other horror properties are in various stages of development (including a new “Friday the 13th” sequel that may or may not include Jason – – erm, what!?) , a sequel to their redo of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” – which met with much criticism when it fingered theatergoers a few years back – isn’t on the cards.
According to Fuller, New Line (formerly known as ‘the House that Freddy Built’… before Gollum came along) isn’t interested in returning to Springwood.
“You know what? I haven’t heard a thing. It’s a little bit disappointing”, Fuller tells Crave Online. “We were very proud of that movie. It was Rooney Mara’s first starring role. In terms of pure box office, I think that’s our highest grossing film worldwide. I’d love to do another one, but I feel that way about all of our films. We don’t jump into these films unless we actually loved the characters or the story. I’d love to make Freddy Krueger movies every couple years. It’d be fantastic.”
While Haley, who stepped in for the great Robert Englund as the Bastard Son of a Hundred Maniacs on the remake, is signed for a couple more turns as Freddy, Fuller doesn’t know the in’s and out’s of the deal – and for all he knows, the option on Haley might have even expired.
“I really don’t know his deal so I don’t know when it runs out, but that’s up to New Line and if they want to do it, they will. New Line had such a huge hit with ‘The Conjuring’ and that was a fantastic movie and it feels like New Line might be moving away from the kind of horror with a lot of blood and that kind of thing in their movie, more towards what ‘The Conjuring’ was. At least that’s what I’ve heard, but no one has talked to us about Nightmare on Elm Street.”
Somewhere, Wes Craven smiles.
