ENGLUND ON FREDDY PREQUEL
Robert Englund talked on BBC One about Freddy vs Jason, and the future of Freddy. He confirms the numerous emails tips recieved about a 'solo Freddy movie', which is rumored to be a Nightmare on Elm Street Prequel and a possible Freddy vs Jason 2, all if Freddy vs Jason goes over well. So see the movie twice, and continue on for the story.......
Bryan E writes in 'BBC One had Robert Englund talking about Freddy vs Jason last night! I typed up some of what he had to say,
'Freddy vs Jason looks superb, heck, it is superb. It wouldn't surprise me if fans of the series see it as the definitive chapter in the Krueger saga', says Englund. 'Ronny Yu did such a great job. Like Wes Craven, he has a real eye for detail and assured everyone involved in this film it wasn't going to burst like an overboiled hot water bottle. What he has done is take everyone's favourite aspect of the Freddy character, and everyone's favourite bits of Jason, and combine them into a movie that will surely appeal to everyone. Hey, not just fans! Just wait till you see this thing - it's scary, funny, thrilling...im very excited'.
Englund then talked about the future.
'We'll Ronny would like to do a whole series of Freddy vs Jason movies. He believes this is the start of a new series. If it happens, great. I think we will all be back. We had such a great time on this movie, it's going to be far from a chore to draw everyone back for seconds'.
'Who knows maybe we might even see another solo Freddy movie again, if that's what the fans want'.
The interviewer asked about prequel rumors.
'That's the plan yes. Ronny has sort of taking on a new surrogate father role to Freddy Krueger and Jason, so if any more solo movies come along, he's already told the studio he wants first option on directing them. I've always thought a Freddy prequel would be a wonderful idea, and now with Exorcist, the time feels right. That would be great fun, if only because I'll only be in make-up for like a quarter of the picture. Let's see how Freddy vs Jason does first thought before we get too excited. But yes, it's definitely something Ronny and I have been talking about'.
Englund also said his favourite Elm street was the first - because it was primarily a scary movie - said he would love to direct something again soon, and reflected a bit on the tv series V.
