It was just a few days ago that we let you guys know that A Nightmare on Elm Street star Heather Langenkamp would love to return to the role of Nancy in another A Nightmare on Elm Street movie should the opportunity arise. And today we have word that the actress would also love the chance to star in a film set within James Wan's The Conjuring Universe. She says this.
"I think some of the New Line films that they're putting out, like the Annabelle and all the universes from the Conjuring universes, I do really like a lot of those movies, and I think they all have some really great characters, and they use a lot of character actors from the genre. I think those movies are the ones that appeal to me most. I'm not really into slasher movies. I really don't love watching the body count racking itself up. Of course, I mean, there's a lot of great parts in all of those movies."
Heather Langenkamp then goes on to speak about what kind of role would entice her to return to the big screen, revealing this.
"I think I would just look for a really great part, one that the fans would watch it and go, 'Oh, that's different,.' Or, 'That's cool, that's new.' That had some meat to it that was an interesting role. And that's my goal going forward is to find those roles out there and make my fans happy, because they're like, 'Where are you? Why aren't you doing anything, Heather?' I'm like, 'I don't know, I'm trying.'"
She added this.
"The older I get, the more confident I get that they need old ladies out there in film."
Again, this news comes on the heels of Langenkamp saying that she would love to return as Nancy Thompson in another A Nightmare on Elm Street movie. Specifically, she said last week:
"I would really love to reprise Nancy in a way, because I feel that there's more of that story to be told, certainly. But I don't know if there's anyone out there who is as imaginative as Wes Craven, who could figure it out. I just don't know. I don't see enough great storylines that would incorporate NancyThompson in any universe. I just don't know if that exists, but some brilliant person might be working on something. But I know the fans would love it so much because I see them in these situations where they're so enthusiastic."
Personally, as cool as it would be to see Lagenkamp take a role in James Wan's The Conjuring Universe I think seeing her return to the dream world of Freddy Krueger would be far and way the more exciting project. But that might be the obvious thing to say here. All the same, the last time we saw Langenkamp in a Freddy movie was way back in Scream and The Last House on the Left writer-director Wes Craven's New Nightmare back in 1994. That movie saw Langenkamp play a fictional version of herself hunted by the entity known as Freddy Kruger in the real world. That movie costarred Pet Sematary young star Miko Hughes as her son, Dylan Porter, and Robert Englund as himself and Freddy Krueger. This story comes to us via ComicBook.com.
