Be prepared to have your dreams haunted once again.
The funny bits will be gone, the gore will be back in full force, but there’s no word on who will take over from Robert Englund as the razor-clawed Freddy.
With the Friday the 13th reboot coming up, it was only a matter of time before Freddy Krueger made his appearance. And that time is now, as Platinum Dunes co-heads Brad Fuller and Andrew Form told STYD that the deal is done to reboot the classic ‘80s horror franchise.
“It’s our next movie, hopefully shooting this spring” said Form, referring to Nightmare on Elm Street.
“It’s not Freddy cracking jokes. We want to make a horrifying movie. The concept is so scary, don’t fall asleep or you’ll die. This guy gets you when you’re most vulnerable, in your sleep. We love that. That’s the basis of the movie. It’ll be most similar to the first one but in terms of kills and dreams we’ll borrow from the entire series,” says Fuller.
Original Freddy star Robert Englund will be back for a role, though someone new will step into the dream-hopping demon’s role.
