The 59-year-old actor revealed that there really isn't much demand to resurrect his most popular character. Krueger last made it to the theaters in 2003's Freddy vs. Jason, which ended with Voorhees carrying Krueger's severed head under his arm. The decapitated Freddy still managed to wink.
"We were going to do it with Ash from the Evil Dead movies," Englund said about a sequel to Freddy vs. Jason. "[The Evil Dead director] Sam Raimi, now that he has all his Spider-Man movies and all that money, I'm sure he's going to remake The Evil Dead. I think that's what him and [The Evil Dead star] Bruce Campbell wanna do. But I've heard [the movie studio] is in talks with John Carpenter [director of the original Halloween]. So maybe Freddy and Jason are going to meet up with Michael Myers. I also hear they have a really good prequel script to A Nightmare on Elm Street being passed around. And there was talk that John McNaughton, director of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, was attached. Which means that maybe they would be making a prequel to the original A Nightmare on Elm Street with me out of the makeup for a while. You get to see Freddy Krueger, the early crimes. Freddy Krueger, the early years."
