Just like Halloween, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Nightmare on Elm Street is getting yet another reboot. Not having learned their lesson from 2010’s debacle (which I actually enjoyed, but it was largely ignored in the box office), New Line Cinema is at it again with plans for “new new” take on the series, according to The Tracking Board.
So far the only news we have on the project is David Leslie Johnson (Orphan) will be handling the script because the project is so early in development. Since it’s been five years since the other reboot, I guess that means it’s fair game for another iteration. But all I want is some kind of battle royale with all of the horror icons in one place. Seriously, give me a second Freddy vs. Jason and I’ll give you all of my money. Until then, I guess we’ll just have to deal with all of the franchises’ constant hemorrhaging.[via Tracking Board]
