The legendary A Nightmare On Elm Street franchise has influenced so many countless horror movies over the years and is still influencing them till this day.
We have seen crossovers like Freddy Vs Jason. Also talks about other crossovers through the years. Englund has his own ideas for a rebooted Nightmare on Elm Street if he had the money and the means.
He shared them at this year’s Summer Television Critics Association gathering where he participated in a panel promoting Eli Roth’s History of Horror, a docu-series in the works at AMC targeting a fall premiere. In his own words:
“If I had an Eli Roth budget I would have cast different actors to play Freddy for every potential victim, because Freddy is only alive in the imagination of his future victim. They would talk about it at a slumber party or in a locker room at school, or on the bus going home. All we know about this Fred Krueger is he wears a hat, wears a red and green striped sweater and has a clawed hand. That’s the specifics.”
Now that sounds pretty damn cool and since Eli Roth is is doing this docu series who knows what could possibly happen maybe Robert and Eli can form a bond and get a reboot off the ground.
If Danny McBride and David Gordon Green can do it with Halloween, I believe Eli Roth and the right person to pen the screenplay can give us a reboot of A Nightmare On Elm Street we’ve been waiting for.
