From July, I'm too lazy to look up if we discussed this or not yet, so here it is. I love the idea he came up with for one more Nightmare movie.
“If I had an Eli Roth budget I would have cast different actors to play Freddy for every potential victim,” Englund said. “Because Freddy is only alive in the imagination of his future victim. They would talk about it at a slumber party or in a locker room at school, or on the bus going home. All we know about this Fred Krueger is he wears a hat, wears a red and green striped sweater and has a clawed hand. That’s the specifics.”
“So it could be a red and green cardigan for one Freddy. It could be an old tattered baseball cap for another Freddy. Freddy could be tall, he could be short, he could be overweight, he could be muscular,” he said. “Every one of the victims could have a different Freddy they imagined. And you could haunt them with that Freddy.”
Of course Englund, being a consummate professional, still remembered to leave a part for himself as well: “And then at the end, it would be the ultimate victim and we see Freddy peel [his face] open and maybe it’s yours truly revealed,” he said. “And it’s the essence of Freddy.”
There is a potential here to keep the original series going in some fashion while bringing a new slant to the stories that fit a more modern time. I really like this idea and would love to see it get made.
That sounds awesome Scott.Was reading he was on a show talking about reprising the Freddy role on The Goldbergs and said he may have one more Nightmare movie left in him. Would really love to see it happen.
