This week’s Halloween-themed episode of The Goldbergs focused on the return of Robert Englund’s A Nightmare on Elm Street villain Freddy Krueger delighting fans all across social media. Well, the show creator, Adam Goldberg, also seemed excited about Englund’s return as Freddy Krueger and even went to plead New Line Cinema to consider bringing back the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
During the airing of The Goldbergs’ Halloween episode, Goldberg took to Twitter to request New Line Cinema to give another shot at the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Goldberg explained in his tweet that the recent success of the Halloween reboot movie and Englund’s willingness to return to the role after the Goldbergs cameo, calls for the studio to consider making a new Nightmare on Elm Street film.
“Dear @newlinecinema, if the new Halloween movie showed us anything this weekend… it’s that the world NEEDS horror movie villains. Robert said he’d never be Freddy again but had so much fun when we shot he’s now open to it. I did my job, now you do yours!” Goldberg’s tweet read.
While Englund has previously hinted that he is no more interested in reprising the role of Freddy Krueger in any other Nightmare on Elm Street, he has now teased that he might be up for at least one film.
During a recent appearance on Access Online, Englund was asked if he would choose to play Freddy in another movie as he has now donned the avatar again for television. His answer left many to speculate that he might play Freddy on the big screen one more time.
“I think they want to reboot the franchise, but they’re gonna need a new actor,” Englund said. “They’re gonna need a new actor to play Freddy because they’re gonna have to do eight of them. I might have one left in me… but yeah.”
