Platinum Dunes to Bring Freddy Krueger Back to Big Screen
The rumor that Freddy Krueger will be back on the big screen has been confirmed. According to Variety, New Line Cinema has appointed Platinum Dunes to re-launch the 1984 Wes Craven horror film "A Nightmare on Elm Street" about the iconic psycho who haunts the subconscious dreams of teenagers and kills them in their sleep.
The reboot film "Untitled A Nightmare on Elm Street Remake" is more likely to still focus on Krueger who is a serial child killer murdered by angry parents and then returns with a burned face and razor glove to terrorize teens through their dreams. The remake project will be given to Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form who act as the film's producers. Further, it was reported that the studio won't hire a writer until the writers' strike ends.
Krueger was New Line's most profitable franchise before "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy as the iconic character that is originally portrayed by Robert Englund has appeared in nine films and two television series. The horror film will be the New Line's next re-launch of iconic villain project following the resurrection of Jason Voorhees. Currently, the studio is preparing the production of Marcus Nispel's "Friday the 13th" which is slated for an April start.
