So much for Platinum Dunes taking a break from the genre! Word of another new project from the team of Brad Fuller and Andrew Form has broken online, and the good news is that it's not a remake or a sequel.
Brad Fuller has been tweeting up a storm lately, updating fans on the status of a bunch of projects. Next one up? The Platinum Dunes remake of the classic The Monster Squad for Paramount.
Some interesting tidbits coming out of Twitterland this morning concerning Platinum Dunes and their future with our beloved Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street franchises. Nothing too surprising but the source is pretty air-tight.
Updated: While you're here, take another gander at the 44 Amazing Works of Art Inspired by Freddy Krueger.
One two ... the remake is coming for you! That's right, kids! Pull those covers up tight because Sam Bayer's 2010 remake of the Wes Craven classic A Nightmare on Elm Street is getting ready to hit Blu-ray and DVD! How about a hi-def copy on us?
Just when I'd finished washing the taste of the wholly rancid A Nightmare on Elm Street remake from my mouth, our friends at Warner Bros. go and set a home video date for the 2010 retelling of Freddy Krueger's first stab at Elm Street's children.
While traffic on Hollywood Boulevard is always a nightmare on any given night, it was the "Black Carpet Premiere" for Platinum Dunes' A Nightmare on Elm Street that really stopped traffic this past Tuesday evening, and of course Dread Central's red carpet team of Heather Wixson and Brian Smith were on hand to talk with cast members about their feelings on this new direction and vision of Freddy Krueger.
While talking all things A Nightmare on Elm Street during the press junket this morning at the Four Seasons, Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller gave us an update on the Friday the 13th sequel that offers a little more insight than his recent tweet on Twitter that proclaimed the project pretty much dead in the water.
With the A Nightmare on Elm Street junket in full swing today (expect a full report soon), Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller offered some updates on several upcoming projects that we've been waiting to hear about.
You just never know where news is going to come from nowadays, and you have got to be really eagle-eyed to spot it. Luckily we have eyes everywhere and rarely miss a trick.
Exclusive: Brad Fuller Clears the Air on A Nightmare on Elm Street, Talks New Direction for Platinum Dunes
As a lifelong Freddy girl, there is one particular Platinum Dunes remake that I have been paying especially close attention to over the last few years since it was initially announced -- A Nightmare on Elm Street.
It was a very humid night in June of 2009 when this Dread Central scribe stepped off the plane back in her hometown of Chicago to check out what Platinum Dunes had in store for this generation of fans with its new vision for one of horror’s most beloved franchises.
By now we've all seen the Platinum Dunes trailer for the unnecessary A Nightmare on Elm Street remake. Now everyone's favorite producer, Brad Fuller, is sounding off about the response, Freddy's look and more. Keep reading if you dare!
Given the immensely rising popularity of Mixed Martial Arts, I would not be at all shocked if some enterprising filmmaker eventually devises a slasher movie based around the world of MMA. But contrary to what some of you may have heard on the Internet in the past 24 hours, no, a former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight is not the new Jason Voorhees.
Fans anticipating the Platinum Dunes remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street directed by Samuel Bayer will soon have lots to get excited over ... starting ... right ... NOW!
