ENGLUND SAYS MAYBE MORE NIGHTMARES
More reports from the Comic Con keep popping up online, but here's a little something that Robert Englund said regarding more Nightmare on Elm Street flicks. Oh and by the way, beware of spoilers in the opening two paragraphs...
'Robert Englund, who reprises his most famous role in the upcoming horror film Freddy vs. Jason, told SCI FI Wire that the movie allows his Freddy Krueger to get into the mind of Friday the 13th killer Jason Voorhees (Ken Kirzinger). 'I always said, we have to have a Jason Voorhees nightmare,' Englund said in an interview at the recent Comic-Con International. 'We have to see what makes him tick. What a sick puppy he is.'
'In the film, Jason has a dream that reveals some of his background, Englund said. 'It's also a way to get into the backstory, [a] real graceful, frightening and filmic way to see some exposition,' he said. 'And there's a point where I lure him into my world, and ... I morph ... [into] the mother. I'm pretending to be his mother, because I know he has real issues.'
'Englund added that he thinks the film may reinvigorate both the Friday the 13th and the Nightmare on Elm Street franchises, on which it is based. 'I think they may be testing the waters at New Line to ... like put some fresh blood into both,' he said. 'I have a hunch that New Line has one or two great Friday the 13th scripts on the shelf. I know there's one or two great Nightmare on Elm Street scripts.'
Freddy vs. Jason opens August 15th in the US, and on the 22nd here in the UK.
