Sam Bayer Moving Out of Springwood, Says “No” to ‘Elm Street’ Sequel

A quick news bite for those of you already hoping for a sequel to Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema’s A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, which arrives in theaters April 30. Director Sam Bayer tells /Film that he will not be returning to the franchise. “I really hope the film does well. I will not be involved in a sequel…I don’t want to have my next movie be a horror movie. I’m already looking at stuff and I think I’m probably going to do a- it might be an action movie, or there’s a comic book they want to make into a film I’m very attracted to. But I think I’m going to move on and let someone else handle the next one, and it’ll be great.” Jackie Earle Haley (Freddy Krueger) and Rooney Mara (Nancy Thompson) told Bloody Disgusting they are both signed on for a sequel if one were to get greenlit.
