Freddy’s isn’t dead… again.
New Line Cinema (“The house that Freddy built”) is reportedly remaking Wes Craven‘s 1984 horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street for a SECOND time. Their first
horrendous remake was released in 2010 and only grossed over $115 million worldwide.
Bloody Disgusting reports that New Line has tapped Orphan screenwriter David Leslie Johnson to bring Freddy Krueger back to the big screen with Toby Emmerich, Walter Hamada, and Dave Neustadter overseeing the project.
The challenge: finding a Freddy who can who can fill Robert Englund‘s shoes. New Line couldn’t do it five years ago, what makes them think they can do it now?
