Samuel Bayer will not direct Elm St. 2
/Film recently spoke with A Nightmare on Elm Street director Samuel Bayer, who said he isn't interesting in returning to direct a sequel if one moves forward after the initial film.

"I really hope the film does well. I will not be involved in a sequel...I don't want to have my next movie be a horror movie. I'm already looking at stuff and I think I'm probably going to do a- it might be an action movie, or there's a comic book they want to make into a film I'm very attracted to. But I think I'm going to move on and let someone else handle the next one, and it'll be great."

The site tried to squeeze a few details about the comic book movie he mentioned, but he was stopped by his assistant, only revealing that, "I'm really into graphic novels and really into the superhero genre, and I really think there's some interesting stuff going on, and I think that's what I'm leaning towards."

A Nightmare on Elm Street stars Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Katie Cassidy, Connie Britton and will be released in theaters nationwide on April 30.
