" The tone is going to be a little darker, a little more traditional horror than the Warwick Davis ones that people remember, trying to find a way to please fans of that genre but at the same time this is really being played for scares."
Here is what he said when asked if any elements from the originals would be used in the new film.
"No, it is a true reboot of the franchise."
