NEW LINE PREPS NEW ELM STREET?
Take this as rumor until clarified: Bloody Disgusting received an email from someone who calls himself WryTer' who had a few things to say about the progress of Freddy vs Jason 2, which isn't too good. But on the brighter side of things, New Line isn't going to leave us begging for more. Read on for some news on the possibility of another Nightmare on Elm Street.
WryTer' sent in some news from New Line Cinema, which depending on how you look at it, could be good or bad. Although I do not know this scooper, he had some things in his email that make me believe he could be the real deal - but still take this as rumor!
WryTer' writes, 'Wes Craven has passed on making a new solo Elm Street. With the success of FvsJ, he was asked to do one, but kindly refused. At least that's the story I got from one of the writers who might be attached instead (one of three), who's currently doing a re-write on Sword of Dracula. We were working on something together, until recently.
The deal is: NewLine are in talks with a rival studio to do a new Freddy vs Jason sequel, but negotiations to use a third character are taking longer than anticipated. So, the call's out for a new solo Freddy Krueger movie, which they'd like to have out Early '05, if not earlier - it's all about keeping the fans interested while they get this FvsJ sequel off the ground.'
So if the rumors are true, that Freddy vs Jason 2 would be the FINAL Nightmare and Friday, then it would rock that they are planning on making another Nightmare on Elm Street, no?
We'll keep you updated as news arrives.
