Tadd informed me that Sideshow Toys ran a interview with Robert Englund to help promote their recent release of their Freddy vs Jason figures and inside this interview were Robert Englund’s opinions on the future of Freddy, and who he might pit up against.
Robert Englund in response to another Freddy vs Jason vs Ash question—>
In a portion of the interview over at Sideshow, they asked:
SC: Everyone certainly identifies you with your role of Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street films. Will there be another movie with this character in your future?
RE: There are rumors of Freddy and Jason versus Ash of the Evil Dead series. There are also rumors out of New line that there have been meetings with the owners of the Michael Myers franchise. Freddy Versus John Carpenter? Freddy Versus Bruce Campbell? With the success of Freddy Versus Jason I think it is a safe bet that there will be some new Freddy project. Personally, I would like to see a prequel and play Freddy out of make-up, before he was burned.
Englund pretty much just repeated what has been known for months now. But I will say this, golden arrows are pointing in the direction of having a Myers “cameo” in the next New Line battle, even if Ash graces the big screen once again. Nothing is set in stone, but I have my feelings, which are usually right on track….
