Nightmare on Elm Street remake gains writer
The Nightmare on Elm Street remake is moving forward as a writer has just been assigned to what is being described as a relaunch of the series, not a remake.
Since it's just starting to be written there aren't a lot of details known about it just yet, but there is a little information on the general tone of the new film, and frankly it still sounds like a remake.
The film will continue to centre on the Freddy Krueger character, and it will still retain the high school setting. However this one is supposed to be delving deeper into the psychology of the nightmares and the character himself, and more importantly it is to have a much darker tone.
Well those words from The Hollywood Reporter through Bloody Disgusting all sound great, but we really have to hope that they don't just remake it without considering the original and those fans. Still, we have to realise it needs to be updated.
That seems to have some backing as we hear that Strick previously wrote Cape Fear, The Saint, Wolf and Doom, to name but a few, now think about Cape Fear and consider that level of tension in the remake.
