Robert Englund, Freddy Krueger himself, wasn’t a giant fan of the 2010 Nightmare On Elm Avenue remake, however he has one particular thought for a way a second remake try may have the ability to enhance issues. As reported by Cinema Mix, Englund would love to see Kevin Bacon take over the Freddy Krueger function, and he’s even heard some “gossip” about Bacon being thought-about for a hypothetical new Nightmare film (to not be confused with New Nightmare, which was already a film). Englund isn’t positive if what he has heard is correct, however he hopes it’s as a result of says Bacon “respects horror motion pictures” and “doesn’t make enjoyable of them,” so he has the best perspective to tackle a big-personality villain like Freddy Krueger.
Apparently, this rumor may’ve been began by Bacon himself, who steered to a fan on Twitter final August that he’d be eager about taking part in Freddy:
So far as anybody is aware of, although, there isn’t actually one other Nightmare On Elm Avenue revival within the works, so that is all principally simply wishful considering for everybody concerned. That being mentioned, it could be a pleasant coup for Englund if it does occur. In spite of everything, one in every of Bacon’s first characteristic movie roles was getting stabbed by the neck in Friday The 13th by Pamela Voorhees, the mom of Freddy’s greatest rival, and Jason undoubtedly wouldn’t be blissful to see one in every of his mother’s victims placing on that hat and striped sweater.
