New NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Movie & HBO Max Series in the Works

A Nightmare on Elm Street writer-director Wes Craven’s estate recently snagged back the rights to the series from New Line.

And today we have word from our buddies over at Bloody Disgusting that Craven’s estate has begun taking pitches for both a new feature film and also for a possible HBO Max series.

Now I don’t know about you but here’s hoping that BOTH the movie AND the series get off the ground, am I right? But if push came to shove I have to say, I’d take the HBO Maz series.

How about you? Let us know below!

In Wes Craven’s classic slasher film, several Midwestern teenagers fall prey to Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on the teenagers in their dreams — which, in turn, kills them in reality.

After investigating the phenomenon, Heather Langenkamp begins to suspect that a dark secret kept by her and her friends’ parents may be the key to the mystery, but can Nancy and her boyfriend (Johnny Depp) solve the puzzle before it’s too late?

Written and directed by Wes Craven, A Nightmare on Elm Street was produced by Robert Shaye and starred John Saxon, Ronee Blakley, Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss, Nick Corri, Johnny Depp, and Robert Englund as Freddy Kreuger.

New Line Cinema released it back on November 9, 1984.
