I’m just going to say it here, the recent reboot of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise missed the mark a bit. I’m, of course, not the only one who feels this way however the original series remains a favorite of slasher fans. According to The Tracking Board the franchise may be getting another chance.
“Plans are to scrap the lackluster 2010 reboot and start with a fresh new take,” says the report. “There’s no producer on board yet, but Orphan scribe David Leslie Johnson has been tapped to script. Toby Emmerich, Walter Hamada, and Dave Neustadter will oversee for New Line.”
Most geeky eyes are on David Leslie Johnson these days since it’s been announced he’ll be scripting Warner Bros’ new Dungeons and Dragons film.
The first reboot in 2010 only gained #115.7 globally however the thought of a fresh take is interesting. As long as they can get it right this time.
