In an interview with Too Fab, star Robert Englund revealed that he thought the release of the remake of “The Nightmare’s Hour” was too premature, and said he would have liked to do a sequel to “Freddy vs. Jason ‘. before restarting the franchise.
“I think the remake was done too hastily. I think the remake of ‘A Hora do Nightmare’ was too premature. We should have done a sequel to ‘Freddy vs. Jason ‘is expected another 5 or 10 years. I think the same thing happened with ‘Killer Toy’.
He continues: “Freddy is still part of popular culture. [A imagem dos filmes antigos] Blu-ray on the big screen is even better these days than when feature films hit theaters. Any 12-year-old preteen who sees it will love it. You don’t need to reach a new generation yet.
Recently, rumors have suggested that a possible remake of ‘Freddy vs. Jason ‘is in development.
It has been said that the film should serve as a way to revitalize both franchises for new generations, as “The Nightmare Hour” has also lost momentum in recent years.
More details have not been revealed, so there is no information on the direction, cast and early predictions.
Considering that the creators of ‘Friday the 13th’ continue to fight for the rights to the franchise, the remake could take a long time to go into production.
Released in 2003, “Freddy vs. Jason” became an official part of the canon of both franchises and first featured a cross between villains from slasher horror films.
Directed by Ronny Yu, the feature film made $ 116.6 million worldwide, on a budget of just $ 25 million.
A few months ago, Eliajh Wood declared his desire to develop a reboot of ‘The Nightmare Hour’ through his producer, SpectreVision.
During an interview with Coming Soon, the star revealed her desire to bring Robert Englund into the role of Freddy Krueger in the new films.
Additionally, Wood also revealed that he had no intention of telling the villain’s origin story in order to invest in a completely different story.
“If we want to continue this franchise, we have to bring Robert Englund back for more movies. But I don’t find it interesting to tell the same story again, and we don’t need to tell its origin again … In fact, [o foco] it shouldn’t even be so much about Freddy Krueger.
For some, reducing Freddy’s presence may be a risky idea, but it’s worth remembering that the original focused on Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) and her friends trying to survive the villain’s attacks.
Recalling that a new movie has yet to be officially confirmed as the idea is still in its early stages, but it looks like SpectreVision has already reached out to Englund to discuss negotiations for the role.
Released in 1984, the original film was written and directed by Wes Craven, who died in 2015, and starred Johnny Depp, Ronee Blakley, Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss and Nick Corri.
Since then, the film has built a huge legacy for the slasher subgenre, spawning six sequels and a remake.
In total, the franchise grossed over $ 583 million worldwide and became the third-highest-grossing horror saga in history – losing to “Friday the 13th” ($ 671.5 million) and ” Halloween ”($ 620) 0.4 million).
