ENGLUND vs FREDDY vs JASON
MTV News reports that Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland is inked to star in Freddy vs. Jason.
Additionally, the MTV article provides a wealth of information straight from Mr. Krueger himself, Robert Englund. Englund said that he was expecting a new draft of the script to arrive any day now, but already the story incorporates a look into Freddy Krueger's nightmares as well as a return to the off-color, wicked sense of humor the character had in the early Nightmare movies.
Englund also discussed the controversial decision to recast the part of Jason without using Kane Hodder. 'Kane is a friend of mine and it makes this difficult,' Englund told MTV News. ''Cause I think of Kane as Jason. Nobody does the killing machine like Kane. The only thing I know is, they're looking at people. ... One of the things that may be in the rewrites is that there may be a sequence in a flashback, we may see Jason young. Given that, they may be forced to hire somebody younger.'
And a hint of explanation was offered on how the two horror powerhouses will come together. 'Freddy needs Jason. He manipulates him, and then it all starts to fray at the edge,' revealed Englund.
