A lot of buzz has been generated lately, thanks to the success of Halloween, about reviving some of our beloved slasher flicks such as ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and ‘Friday the 13th’, and to have both films, which had been bumbled by Platinum Dunes close to a decade ago, a proper re-launch.
In the case of Elm Street, Robert Englund recently revived his iconic role of Freddy Krueger during an episode of the Goldberg’s and teased he may want to do one more film.
Now, Heather Langenkamp, who played Nancy Thompson in the first film, is chiming in with her desire to get back into character one last time.
“I’m sitting here like any other scream queen in Hollywood, hoping that they revive their franchise,” Langenkamp said, during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “I’m not alone! I know of lots of other horror heroines who have this little bit of spring in their step thinking about the chance of perhaps being in [new versions of] the movies that they helped make famous as young people.”
“It’s kind of crazy, but it’s definitely something I would love to do,” she stated.
While the buzz is palpable, Langenkamp said nothing has come to fruition as of yet.
“I haven’t [heard anything about a new film],” Langenkamp said. “I certainly keep up with friends at New Line Cinema, and so I would expect if Warner Bros. or New Line Cinema — whoever — would put something like that together, I would imagine that I would know. So, the fact that I don’t know leads me to believe that it’s probably not in the works.”
