Do you really think that your night will be safe? Maybe not…as rumors about “A Nightmare On Elm Street” reboot is now on the making, and it’s coming from New Line Cinema.
According to a report from Collider, just when you thought you could now sleep peacefully in your comfy bed, New Line Cinema has announced that they have plans to revive their horror franchise “A Nightmare on Elm Street” with an all-new film.
Many fans are in doubt about the planned reboot since most of the people who watched the 2010 reboot starring Jackie Earle Haley as the notorious nightmare Freddy Krueger gave the film a thumbs down and went home shaking their heads because of disappointment. The horror film franchiser is fully aware of it so movie goers should not worry at all since the team are in favor of having a completely fresh take.
It was reported that the script writer of the Warner Bros. “Dungeons & Dragons” adaptation has been chosen to pen the script of the newest installment of “A Nightmare On Elm Street.
On the other hand, the Tracking Board reports that the New Line Cinema is going back to the drawing board on this reboot. The site also added that the studio owes a lot to Wes Craven, the writer and director of the original 1984 horror film. It became New Line Cinema’s first commercial success after a number of box office flops.
If ever the studio will continue their reboot plan, this will be their 10th film installment—they have already launched a total of nine films, a TV series, novel and comic books.
The upcoming reboot has still no plot details that are currently available, but you can assure that Freddy and knife-fingered glove along with his signature sweater and fedora will again roam in your dreams and make you suffer every night.
On the other hand, “A Nightmare On Elm Street “ is not the only classic horror film that will have a comeback—Dimension’s “Halloween Returns,” directed by Marcus Dunstan, David Bruckner’s “Friday the 13th” sequel, and LionsGate “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” prequel titled “Leatherface” will be having their comeback next year.
