FREDDY VS. JASON UPDATE
While attending the 28th annual Saturn Awards, Robert 'Freddy Krueger' Englund has given hope to many fans in confirming how the production of the long-anticipated FREDDY VS. JASON movie is coming along.
When asked about his feelings that Ronny Yu (director of BRIDE OF CHUCKY) had finally been brought on as director, Englund stated, ?You know it?s funny. I was judging a film festival a few years back in Europe, and I was judging with Jean-Pierre Jeunet the guy who directed AMELIE. I was talking to John Landis and we were hanging out and everyone was having a great time? It was really heavy on Hong Kong fantasy and stuff. We were all sitting around and fighting the jurors, and talking about all these films, like PI and stuff. The film that swept, the one the audience wanted, the one all the so called chain smoking, intellectual French wanted was BRIDE OF CHUCKY. I?m really feeling good about his participation about FREDDY VS. JASON.?
Englund then went on to say, ?I?m thinking now that this new script , which has been around since February, I?m guessing they?ve really gone for fun,? Englund said. ?I think they?ve stuck more of the effects which were written out two years ago back in? Now I think they?re really going to have fun. Not make it silly, not make it ABBOT AND COSTELLO MEET FREDDY, but make it fun. It?s been through four directors [over the years]. It?s greenlit. I don?t think we?re going to do it this year, but it?s definitely going to happen now.?
