It was back in 2015 when we first heard about another A Nightmare On Elm Street reboot was being planned courtesy of Warner Bros./New Line Cinema, with David Leslie Johnson (Orphan, The Conjuring 2) attached to write the script. It’s been very quiet since the first announcement, but talk on the next Elm Street film has picked up again this week.
“When Brenton Higgins begins to appear in other people’s dreams at will, he has no idea that he is the illegitimate son of Freddy Krueger. Recently moving back to Elm Street, Brenton discovers his hidden past and finds himself on a collision cause with Freddy himself. Brenton is also pursued by a mysterious secret government agency, led by Professor Matthew Luk. They want his gift. What they don’t know is that they will get Krueger, with hell to pay.”
The site also states that the David Leslie Johnson-penned A Nightmare On Elm Street reboot is very much still in the works. Stay tuned to Dark Universe for more on this to come very soon.
