New Line Developing Another Nightmare on Elm Street Remake
Samuel Bayer’s 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street was nothing short of an abomination, completely missing the opportunity to do something fresh and new with the franchise and instead poorly recreating moments from Wes Craven’s original. Now, we shall pretend it never existed.
The Tracking Board reports tonight that New Line Cinema is currently developing yet another reboot of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise with David Leslie Johnson (Orphan) attached to write the screenplay. Specific details about Freddy’s return, however, are being kept under wraps.
Toby Emmerich, Walter Hamada, and Dave Neustadter will oversee for New Line.
Your first response to this news may be to question why it’s necessary, but given how poor of a note Freddy went out on back in 2010, I can’t help but be genuinely excited about this one. The way I see it, this is New Line’s chance to redeem themselves and give Freddy the respect he deserves.
We’ll of course report more on this one as we learn it.
