[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”8104″ img_size=”700×467″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The 2010 reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street did not work. We’ve had plenty of Michael Myers and Jason Vorhees. Only one man seems to be Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund.
Now, though; it seems like we might be getting a new movie. Now that Wes Craven’s estate has earned back the rights to the franchise, it’s being reported that they are hearing pitches for the series. There are also rumors that the state is hearing pitches for a possible TV show to explore the mythos of Freddy Krueger. Alongside Englund was Heather Langenkamp’s Nancy who helped kick off the popularity of the franchise. Having only returned for two sequels, Langenkamp’s revealed she’s be happy to return:
“I would really love to reprise Nancy in a way, because I feel that there’s more of that story to be told, certainly,” Langenkamp shared with ComicBook.com. “But I don’t know if there’s anyone out there who is as imaginative as Wes Craven, who could figure it out. I just don’t know. I don’t see enough great storylines that would incorporate Nancy in any universe. I just don’t know if that exists, but some brilliant person might be working on something. But I know the fans would love it so much, because I see them in these situations where they’re so enthusiastic.”
“They’re such great fans that the horror genre just doesn’t seem to appreciate them enough. I constantly walk away with, these are people who have created a genre just out of pure love over the past 30 years. Their love of these movies has actually buoyed this genre in a way that no other genres, I think, can say that’s the reason why they’re so successful. And so, for their sake, I think, give them what they want. If this is what they want, they’re telling me they want it, then why wouldn’t you give people what they want?”
Englund himself had previously stated that he only had “one” movie “still in him” and that if they needed someone for sequels and such, they needed a new actor. But, we saw that they didn’t get the right actor in 2010 – can we be confident they’d find the right guy now? What do you think?
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
