Platinum Dunes, in their neverending quest to remake anything they can toss some sweat and dirt on, have been eyeing up who would be the best pick to script the Nightmare on Elm Street remake. Was their choice going to go over well with genre fans? Maybe…
BD is reporting that the writers of Freddy vs. Jason, Mark Swift & Damian Shannon, are being favored by Dunes to bring one of the biggest icons of horror back to life in this franchise reboot. While not officially hired, this duo already did script the Friday the 13th retread that Bay’s company is also working on.
Good news? To those of us who could look past FvJ‘s serious flaws, it is a light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Then again, will we be forced to see another Jason Mewes clone and an army of unidentifiable characters?
