3D NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Sequel Gets Greenlight

     May 3, 2010

The remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street woke up to a $32.2 million opening weekend.  It’s no surprise that TheWrap is reporting that Warner Bros. has committed to telling the next chapter of Freddy Krueger in 3D.  At the junket for the film, producer Brad Fuller said that “Freddy always has a story to tell.”  Unsurprisingly, he thinks it can be told in 3D.  Telling Dread Central:

We think that 3D movies have to be designed and written as such. If Eric (Heisserer) and Wesley (Strick) came to us with a Nightmare sequel script that is for a 3D movie, we’d be fools not to make it. Using 3D for a Nightmare sequel has to work conceptually for us, though. I don’t want to shoehorn the story just so we can use 3D technology. I do really think this movie and the visual style would work well within a 3D environment, though, so you never know.

I know the answer right now: it will be in 3D.  Of course, I thought Friday the 13th Part II was a done deal, and that film is deader than a bunch of teenagers at a remote cabin in the woods.

    MAn, now Hollywood is really repeating themselves. Wasn't FREDDY'S DEAD in 3D back in 1991??

    how is that a greenlight? i think that might be a misreading of the quote to say that there is a greenlight.

    stop. just stop.

    please dont bring back Eric Heisserer and Wesley Strick to write the script. The worst part of ANOES 2010 was the totally inept script written by these hacks. Sam Bayer is also a hack, bring in somebody who knows what they are doing.

    Yes it was, even though it was just the last scene or two and some credits or something.

    But ya, you know the studio was thinking, man if we only 3Dified this one we would of had more $$$!!!

    Oh well, gloom..

    Yes, but these guys are cheaper. And lets face it, hiring good writers that cost more is unlikely to affect the BO numbers.

    I personally havent seen the originals but i watched the remake….i struggled to stay awake as so did the cast, but if they get a good story and strong actors (unlike the lame talentless actors they had in the remake) and definately film it in 3D i think it will deffo be a hit because introducing the dreamworld in 3D is just an amazing idea if they get the direction and camera right along with the 3D element it will feel like you yourself are also in the dream thus making it a lot scarier as you also try to escape!

  • Seegee

    uh yeah, but it should make a better movie dumb ass

    I am a huge fan of the originals. I own them and watch them all once a year. I love the remake. I thought that they went at it with a new perspective and did a great job. The first few times I saw Freddy it bothered me, the difference the way the character was portrayed threw me, but by the end I was roped in and really enjoyed it. I hope they do make a sequel. I’m worried about the 3D part but I’ll walk into that with an open ind just like this and hopefully be pleasantly surprised.

    looking forward to it, the new nightmare could have done better as you probably know, but keeping it going is definitely better for the health of the series
