News Robert Englund Regrets Not Doing ‘Krueger: The First Kills’ Prequel Movie Published 6 months ago on September 9, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet While the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise remains dormant, Freddy Krueger actor and horror legend Robert Englund sat down with ComicBook to discuss Krueger: The First Kills, a prequel movie he regrets not doing. RELATED: ROBERT ENGLUND GIVES KEVIN BACON HIS APPROVAL TO PLAY FREDDY! Englund on the prequel: “There’s some great internet Youtube versions of a kind of prequel Freddy, or early Freddy, that I like that are really interesting. If I could go back in time, there was a script kicking around — it might have been called Krueger: The First Kills — but it’s not the series Tobe Hooper version of the prequel.” Englund on the director and regrets: “The rumor was it was going to be John McNaughton directing that, the great director of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, starring Michael Rooker. And I was excited. I was excited, and for a brief second of time, there was some validity to that project. But that, that I guess I could consider a regret. That would have been when it would have been fun to do, and I was still young enough to do it. I had some ideas — I wanted to dye my hair red like I did in Freddy vs. Jason — things like that. I had some ideas I wanted to play with. That’s probably my only regret.” You can read the entire interview by visiting the ComicBook website.
