There's been a lot of rumors going around lately about what's going on with the Platinum Dunes reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street, and the state of Friday the 13th 2 in 3D. In response to all of it, Brad Fuller spoke out this morning on his blog about both films.
"I have read all the rumors and want to make sure that you have the facts. We are doing a couple of days of reshooting Elm Street. People seem to be making a big deal about that fact. Elm Street is our 8th film and we've had reshoots for every film," said Fuller.
As reported earlier, A Nightmare on Elm Street was going through some reshoots which including adding new cast members to the film, although they were not expected to delay the April 30th, 2010 release of the film.
Fuller went on to report, "I will say this though- nothing beats seeing Jackie back as Freddy- he works so hard to perfect his portrayal and leaves nothing to chance."
That leads us to believe that whatever reshoots they are doing, Freddy will be killing off some kids in them, if Jackie Earle Haley is back to reprise his role as the child killer.
As for Friday the 13th Part 2 in 3D?
"We have busted our ass to get that movie going! The script is great- dare I say, better than the first. Shannon and Swift have outdone themselves. We are working with New Line to get that movie going. I had hoped to be able to tell you that we started prepping the movie, but that isn't the case. We are hoping that New Line decides to get us started early next year," said Fuller.
So while it looks like it will be a while before we see Jason Voorhees pop out of our movie screens in 3D, it's good to know that A Nightmare on Elm Street is still on track.
Thanks to Platinum Dunes producer, Brad Fuller, for the update.
