The remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” terrorized its way to $32.2 million opening weekend, and while it wasn’t a juggernaut of success, it did well enough to come out on top which convinced Warner Bros. to commit to a sequel. Surprised? No? Ya, neither was I really.
Warner Bros. announced that they will continue with the next chapter of Elm St. and this time it will be in 3D. During the press junket for the “Nightmare,” producer Brad Fuller told Dread Central that that “Freddy always has a story to tell…” This is what Fuller said:
We think that 3D movies have to be designed and written as such. If Eric (Heisserer) and Wesley (Strick) came to us with a Nightmare sequel script that is for a 3D movie, we’d be fools not to make it. Using 3D for a Nightmare sequel has to work conceptually for us, though. I don’t want to shoehorn the story just so we can use 3D technology. I do really think this movie and the visual style would work well within a 3D environment, though, so you never know.
Not much else is known, but I bet we can expect the sequel to come out again sometime in May next year.
