The Future Of Elm Street & Friday the 13th

Rumours have been running around about proposed sequels for the recent remakes of “Friday the 13th” and “A Nightmare on Elm Street” ever since the films came out.

This weekend, Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller posted some tweets clarifying where things currently stand on both.

On a “Friday the 13th Part II”, Fuller indicates they want to do a sequel but haven’t gotten a green light yet. “[Mark] Shannon and [Damian] Swift wrote a great script. We are ready to go, when New Line is ready. But as of yet, they are not ready” he says.

The future of the “Elm Street” franchise however isn’t looking as rosy – “As for Freddy, as far as I know, there isn’t even talk of writing another script.”

Platinum Dunes is presently at work on the adventure film adaptation of the board game “Ouija”, and a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot.
