Another Nightmare on Elm Street reboot reportedly in the works

08.06.2015

A Nightmare on Elm Street Jackie Earle Haley Robert Englund Banner

If Sony can reboot Spider-Man three times, then I guess New Line can do the same thing with Freddy Krueger. The word from The Tracking Board is A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET reboot/remake is in the works from the studio, and they say the plan is "to scrap the lackluster 2010 reboot and start with a fresh new take." While project doesn't have a producer or director yet, ORPHAN and WRATH OF THE TITANS scribe David Leslie Johnson has been hired to write the script.

Although 2010 reboot from director Samuel "Just get a life" Bayer starring Jackie Earle Haley was panned by critics, it was still a solid hit at the box office, grossing $115 million worldwide against a budget of $35 million, and it earned an additional $14 million in Blu-ray/DVD sales. I didn't hate the film like some and thought Haley did just fine as Freddy, however it certainly wasn't as good as the original movie, or most of the sequels.

If there is going to be another A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET reboot (none of this has been confirmed by New Line yet), who do you want to play Freddy?

They should go the New Nightmare route and have, within the context of the new film, that New Line is filming a sequel to the Jackie Earl Haley reboot but the Robert Englund Freddy starts showing up and killing off the crew because the fictional character is pissed about remakes tarnishing his legacy. I'd love to see Jackie's Freddy fight Robert's. This way BOTH series are in continuity and they can break the 4th wall a bit again. Englund's Freddy can kill off the cast of the reboot, along with

Englund's Freddy can kill off the cast of the reboot, along with Wes Craven, Bob Shaye and Robert Englund before breaking out of the source material completely and existing in our REAL LIFE nightmares. It would be cool to see Shaye and Craven really acknowledge how many actual nightmares they caused now-grown kids of the 80's like me and the bulk of the original fanbase, while still pushing the story forward and giving them a fresh slate to work with for future installments of Englund's Freddy in the future. Plus, then we could get real life Dream Warriors at some point...

To get this right you have to:

Use the classic Freddy make up (no shitty or realistic take on it) have him say one liners all the way and make every single death and extended special effect sequence. There, I've given you the formula, now go and do it!

I would rather just have a cardboard cutout of Robert Englund as Freddy, than to actually cast someone new in the iconic role.

Nope, the 2010 remake was a awful piece of dog shit. And I'm sorry NOES doesn't work without Robert Englund.

If the studio would stop being so damn cheap and pay Englund what he is worth in that character (he is Freddy and he makes the movie) he would come back and give us a great performance. But they want to spend $35 million or less on the film and pocket $80 million. They aren't willing to pay him what he is worth yet they're making billions off of him. He got fed up and left. I would too.

If they HAVE to recast Freddy, my pick is Ben Mendelsohn.

Nope. Freddy needs to stay dead.

The last reboot was the biggest abomination ever. They get an actual actor to play a guy and give him NOTHING to work with. He wasn't scary, humerous or even memberable. He did nothing to make the character his own. The only remake that was worse was the recent Poltergeist film.

I understand having to reboot superheros like F4 and Spidey, there are so many universes(versions) and ways to incorporate new things. But Freddy, Jason, Chucky and Pinhead are ALL non-replaceable. When they try to

I was beginning to wonder if there was a 90's Spiderman in the same way there was a F4 back then

As long as they bring back Englund

Robert Englund IS Freddy Krueger.

agreed.
I rented the reboot just for tricks and giggles... I cant even remember it except that Clancy Brown (the Kurgan from Highlander) played one of the fathers to the kids in the barn scene near the beginning... seriously it was totally forgettable.

Didn't mind Haley's portrayal

But definitely didn't find the reboot that interesting or entertaining. I think just not dealing with the reboot approach and simply just continue with Haley's Freddy with a new group of teens is fine by me. Everyone knows who Freddy is, so why waste an entire movie explaining to the audience how he got the way he did?

the original spent less than 10 minutes explaining his "origins" ok he's a child molester that got hunted and burned in a barn and came back through dreams... take five minutes on that and move on.

It's always funny when someone asks who we want to play Freddy when the answer is always Robert Englund.

true... Robert's a gem however even he cannot play that role forever...
it should technically be " who ELSE do we want to play Freddy in the reboot?"

I actually wouldnt mind seeing more antics from Freddy with creative kill scenes. Just keep it more scary than funny, and please no origin story again - we know how he got to where he is and why.
