Well, this is surely a good sign that someone at New Line is paying attention to how horror is doing at the box office. Since before the phenomenal success of the incredibly bad Halloween remake, they’ve been working on a new Friday the 13th (“New Friday in ‘09”? – July 2007), as you know. But what about that other New Line franchise?
Well, today Bloody Disgusting got word from their source at New Line that, indeed, another Nightmare on Elm Street is being panned but it will not be the prequel idea that’s been going around for a few months now. What will it be, then? Specifics are still up in the air, and I’m sure the seemingly never-ending writer’s strike isn’t helping.
The site also learned that the Freddy Vs. Jason sequel has been scrapped, yet again, so thank whatever horror Gods there are out there for that. And hey, as long as they keep the design of Freddy from New Nightmare for the new movie, I’ll be happy!
