Animated ELM STREET Movie? Robert Englund Would Return

A Nightmare on Elm Street writer-director Wes Craven’s estate recently snagged back the rights to the series from New Line. And today Robert Englund let us all know that he would love to do Freddy’s voice for an animated movie.

Englund tells SyFy Wire: “Now, if they did a really expensive animated version, a graphic novel animated version, I would love to go do the voice for it. Yeah, that would be fun to do.”

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?
