Robert Englund could have given up playing Freddy Krueger again, but that does not necessarily mean that he has completely finished with A nightmare on Elm Street. He has stated that he would be interested in returning if a new version of the third installment of the series was ever made, Warriors of dreams.
Although he now considers himself too old to do justice to his iconic character, he would be eager to reappear in a supporting role or cameo, his presence acknowledges his essential contribution to the franchise.
"I would love to go back and perhaps play the dream analyst (the character of Dr. Elizabeth Simms, played by Elizabeth Pointer), the woman in therapy sessions who does not believe there could be a collective nightmare that is common to a group of people, I think it would be fun for fans, it would be fun for me to play the role originally played by a woman and go around the subject. I think there is a kind of tradition in the cameo horror genre like that, so that would be fun for me. "
The story follows Kristen Parker, one of the few surviving teenagers on Elm Street, when she is sent to a mental institution after her injuries from a Freddy night attack are mistaken for a suicide attempt. Together with several other young adults, she is tormented and hunted in her nightmares, but after it happens that she can attract others to her own dreams, they obtain powers drawn from idealized versions of themselves and can fight in a group against the demon of fear. hoping to destroy it once and for all.
Warriors of dreams It was one of the best of elm street movies, revitalizing the franchise after the disappointing sequel, even if Wes Craven intended it to be the conclusion of the story. The movie saw Nancy's return from the original movie after being absent from the sequel, and gave Freddy a backstory in a tormented existence derived from being the "bastard son of a hundred maniacs."
The future of the Nightmare on Elm Street The franchise is not clear at this time. The rights have returned to the property of Wes Craven, who are now making active releases, but no solid decisions have been made on which direction more films will be taken. However, they could certainly do worse than a new version of Warriors of dreams, continuing the importance of highlighting the problems related to mental illness, and the notion of super powers of the dream landscape limited only by the imagination of a writer.
