TCM 3D wasn't in high demand, & most fans hated it, and critics literally massacred it (pun intended) so I can understand why a sequel to that film won't happen any time soon.

Not to mention, it cost $20 million to make, & had another $20 million worth of advertising, & has only made $34 million to date. That's not in demand, because if it were, though numbers would be far, far higher. The 2003 remake was made for $9 & made $80 million domestically, $107 worldwide. That movie was in demand.

Perhaps they were expecting bigger returns and see more potential in creating new franchises like Paranormal Activity etc.
The Elm Street movie cost $35 million to make, & that's not including what the marketing costs were, so making $63 million isn't really a good thing. They made $115 million worldwide I believe, but they don't keep a large share of the profits they earn internationally (no film does unless the deal they work out is air tight).

With that said, Elm Street needed to make $70 million domestically to break even, & probably over $100 million domestically to have been a real profit.

Friday '09 was made for $19 million, & if promotion cost the same, bump that to $38 million, & the movie made about $43 million opening weekend, ending with a total of $65 million domestically & $90 million worldwide. That's good money.
