Here we go again! SMH… Elijah Wood Wants to Remake A Nightmare on Elm Street!
The ‘Lord of the Rings’ star and Daniel Noah, the co-owner of his production company SpectreVision’ admitted they want to reboot the classic horror A Nightmare on Elm Street. Read on for more about Elijah Wood Elm Street…
CelebNMovies247.com reports that Daniel Noah said in a recent interview about rebooting the classic horror franchise.
Daniel Noah said:
We’ve made no secret. We’ve been in touch with the rights holders many times. It’s a real dream project for us to have a chance to make a film in that franchise.
Elijah, 38, added:
Yeah, and it definitely has that aspect of pie in the sky, of getting to play in a certain sandbox, you know? It’s a universe and a character that would be a fun universe to play in.
It’s also interesting to think about what we could do with a franchise like that which reinvents itself or creates something that is playing with the tone and key of the franchise, but it is doing something differently or taking it in a slightly new direction.
Of course, since Halloween F’d up the timeline and still became a success in the box office the studio is currently filming part 2 and 3 which technically will be part 4 Halloween Kills and 5 Halloween Ends; canceling out the previous part 4 Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and 5 Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers.
Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah apparently, want to do the same BS which as they put it — a potential remake wouldn’t mess with the “formula” of the franchise, but would explore new ideas and settings.
‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ was first released in 1984 and tells the story of supernatural child killer Freddy Krueger, who was played by Robert Englund.
It was an original idea and took audiences by storm. Then in 2010 director Samuel Bayer took a crack at ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and RUINED the movie. It was identical to the first with a couple of changes which made the film a big piece of crap. The only part the was awesome was the opening, from there it was all downhill. Wes Craven was a mastermind at Elm Street movies. They are timeless and shouldn’t be touched.
Though Daniel believes otherwise saying:
You don’t want to shake up a formula that’s working. But on the flip side, when you’re just repeating the same formula, it’s kind of diminishing returns. They already did that well, is our point of view. That’s been handled. What are other avenues, what are other neighborhoods in this world that can be used or investigated?
A further eight films were made, although the last film produced was a 2010 remake that received a negative reception from critics.
Daniel Noah previous horror films include the 2019 creature feature ‘Crawl’, 2006’s ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ remake and 2008’s ‘Mirrors.’
Like many of us who were terrorized by the original movie feels it would be an amazing experience to explore.
The 41-year-old director said:
A Nightmare on Elm Street’ would be amazing, one of my most traumatic experiences as a kid was watching ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’. I would love to kind of explore that. This is a great world to explore.
