In front of this present Wednesday’s Halloween scene of “The Goldbergs,” wherein Robert Englund stars as Freddy Krueger, Englund showed up on Access Live this evening, and he was normally approached on the off chance that he’d ever be up for playing Freddy once again in another Nightmare on Elm Street film. Englund has been asked this equivalent inquiry on various occasions throughout the years, yet his answer this time was somewhat unique. It appears he may not be completely resigned all things considered.
“I think they need to reboot the establishment, however they’re going to require another performing artist,” Englund told the show’s hosts. “They’re going to require another performing artist to play Freddy since they’re going to need to complete eight of them. I may have one remaining in me… yet no doubt.”
What Englund is basically saying here is that he wouldn’t have the capacity to pull off playing Freddy for a radical new establishment now in his life, however he appears capable of at any rate getting back under the cosmetics and into the striped sweater for one more go at it on the wide screen. Already, Englund had been shooting down the thought totally, even as a one-shot arrangement.
All I’m stating is, if New Line needs a $80 million, Halloween-style opening end of the week, they’d be shrewd to bring back Englund for a legitimate Elm Street swan tune. From that point, the implement could be passed to another performing artist, maybe another “Fantasy Demon” character totally, however god damn would it be a botched chance to not take Englund up on his “one remaining in me” bother.
