A Nightmare on Elm Street: 3D Sequel Already in the Works

Remember last year when the equally as abysmal Friday the 13th remake made bank at the box office, raking in just over $40 million its first weekend? Sequel talk was on fire! The following weekend Friday dropped a monumental 80%. Sequel talk is now dead. Yet, we’re hearing some all too familiar echoes coming out of the Platinum Dunes camp.

Given that A Nightmare on Elm Street looks to have taken in around $35 million this weekend (official numbers coming soon), the buzz from New Line Cinema and of course Brad Fuller himself via his Twitter page is that a 3D sequel is “already in the works”.

Given that the new Freddy flick will be facing Iron Man 2 next weekend, we’re thinking we’ll see a similar drop off in box office numbers like we did with Friday. So the question beckons – Can all this sequel talk amount to a second theatrical go-around? If so here’s a little advice —

Drop your music video directors and give the gig to a filmmaker who gives a shit about the franchise.

Given that you have an entire dreamworld at your disposal where ANYTHING could happen, try using your imagination instead of pooping out scene for scene rehashes.

And for the love of God …

Redesign Freddy’s make-up so that he’s at least a bit more menacing than Jim Carrey’s portrayal of Fire Marshall Bill on “In Living Color”.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I thought about procuring a copy of IM2 but they were all of questionable quality.

  • Vanvance1

    I’m fine with another Freddy picture; that is if they hire some talent.

    Graham Masterton has done some dream related horror. Why not let him take a crack at the screen play? The man has is a sporadically wonderful writer.

  • Didn’t See It Coming

    I’m sure if we go back to when the Friday remake was made, there was probably news about how a sequel was in the works, which is a no brainer, but low and behold, it’s “dead”. Wouldn’t be surprised if this happened again.

    I just finished seeing “Iron Man 2″ too… Not really, but I have just finished watching the new “Batman 3″ :P

      Was it good? Did it have Robin?

        It was great… I’ll send you a copy!

  • Katsumi

    I know an online site where you can watch Iron Man 2…

    What the hell with the way the first one ended, how can they honestly think a good sequle can come from it..

    If they want to do a sequle unless they do it all about Nancy and Quintin, then they should:

    Make his make up way better, get a better director and find a way to twist the shitty ass plot twist they put in the new one to actually go with a sequel…

    In the old one with its plot there was always room to say “Every town has an elm street!”

    With this new one and the way they twisted the plot I don’t really see them being able to do much other then chase Nacny and Quinting around, for 90 minutes…

    And they should drop the 3D as well, I’m so sick of 3D movies.. I hope they do drop the idea of making a sequle for this movie, theres not point to other then they want the cash…

    I just finished “Iron Man 2,” and yep, Freddy is falling under Bucket head’s feet next week.
