Wes Craven’s estate actively taking pitches for A Nightmare on Elm Street

According to Bloody Disgusting, Wes Craven’s estate is now actively taking pitches for a new A Nightmare on Elm Street. The U.S. rights to the movie and to Freddy Krueger (who was created by Craven) were acquired by the estate about two months prior.

The outlet notes that Wes Craven’s estate is apparently interested in feature film pitches as well as pitches for a possible HBO Max series.

While no further details or names have been brought up yet, Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah’s SpectreVision might be interested in sending along a pitch of their own as the producers recently told us that they have “long fantasized having a crack at Nightmare on Elm Street.”

“We’ve been in touch with the rights holders many times. It’s a real dream project for us to have a chance to make a film in that franchise. And like I said, we have a very specific take on it. I think it would be very surprising and exciting to remake the franchise,” Noah previously said.

Wood added, “It’s a universe and a character and an idea that would be a fun sandbox to play in. It’s trying to do something different… It’s also interesting to think about what could we do with a franchise like that which reinvents itself or creates something that is playing with the tone and key of the franchise, but is doing it differently or taking it in a slightly new direction.”

The original A Nightmare on Elm Street was written and directed by Wes Craven and released in 1984. The movie starred Robert Englund as the horror icon Freddy Krueger, Heather Langenkamp, and Johnny Depp. The horror film followed a group of teenagers whose dreams are invaded by the monstrous spirit of a slain child murderer, Freddy, who seeks revenge against the teens’ parents who were responsible for his death.
