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.
