With A Nightmare on Elm Street sequel opening strong at the box office this weekend with a $32.2 million performance, it's no surprise that the talk has now turned to the sequel, and a 3D sequel at that. The Wrap spoke with Warner distribution president Dan Fellman who revealed that a 3D sequel is moving forward.
"We don't have a story yet, but this is the largest horror opening in the April-May corridor, and it just proves there's a lot left in the franchise," said Warner distribution president Dan Fellman.
"I think that making the Nightmare sequel in 3D is a bigger discussion than for right here in this room. 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," Fuller added.
We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further details on a sequel to A Nightmare on Elm Street as soon as we have more information.
