While i was writing my last post, i had to look up Michael Bay on IMDB, and while on his page i realized an amazing group of words on the top of his page. The words read “Nightmare On Elm Street 2010.” Michael bay will be producing it. He is also producing the new Friday The 13th Remake (see this post).
Wes Craven of course, will be writing the 2010 film. The movie is in pre-production, so there isn’t too many details about it, but we know its confirmed and coming. To keep up with this movie visit the IMDB page to find out full details as they arise on the internet. And most likely, we will see the infamous Robert Englund (of course) playing Freddy Krueger in this film.
Its IMDB page reads, “A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.” So the same as the Friday The 13th remake, but a different classic!
Update – For the new Friday The 13th movie coming out, they said it will have an R-Rating and all the blood and guts it will take to honor the original. So far, there hasn’t been any word on how it will go with this new Nightmare On Elm Street film. In order to honor the original in this case, they would have to do some crazy things. Freddy vs. Jason, was not that crazy. Once they bring back how they used to make it back in the day with insane blood and gore, then.. they will have honored the original.
Rumor – Billy Bob Thornton is rumored to replace Robert Englund as “Freddy Krueger” in this new installment. That would just be crazy, and i really wouldn’t be too angry about it.
What do you think about remaking two classic/epic horror films?
