Sure it has been in the talks since Freddy vs Jason hit DVD, but we want something official right? Just rumors and speculation from actors and wonderful websites like B-D (cheap pop) isn’t good enough… Inside you’ll find some news (old news) from a respectable trade regarding Freddy vs Jason vs Ash, but hey, it still gives me goose bumps everytime I read something…
The Hollywood Reporter writes:
Even before 20th Century Fox’s “Alien vs. Predator” captured the top spot at the boxoffice over the weekend, New Line Cinema began plotting a new face-off for its horror favorites, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, who had their own moment at the top of the boxoffice in August 2003 with “Freddy vs. Jason.”
Sources said the studio is in negotiations with director-producer Sam Raimi for a project titled “Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash.” In the proposed sequel, Freddy (the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” films) and Jason (the “Friday the 13th” pics) would go up against Ash, the cynical anti-hero survivor of Raimi’s “Evil Dead” trilogy, which also includes “Army of Darkness.” Bruce Campbell played the character in the trilogy and would play him again if the deal were to close.
Although Raimi would not direct, he holds rights to the “Evil Dead” franchise. “Freddy vs. Jason” grossed more than $74 million, so even if a deal with Raimi can’t be reached, New Line is determined to find a way to extend the franchise by introducing a new character or just pitting Freddy and Jason against each other one more time.
