With horror remakes and legacy sequels all the rage these days, fans have been clamouring for 'A Nightmare On Elm Street' to get another film, and original star Heather Langenkamp has added her voice to the fray.
Langenkamp played Nancy in Wes Craven's original 1984 classic before reprising her role in 1987's superb 'A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors' and played herself in Craven's 1994 meta masterpiece 'Wes Craven's New Nightmare', but the star isn't done with playing Nancy just yet.
Citing Jamie Lee Curtis' recent tangles with Michael Myers, Langenkamp told Entertainment Tonight "if Nancy could fight Freddy one last time, I would really like that."
"Gosh, I’d love to see a future in that. I’ve been really watching the Halloween saga that’s been out, and I love watching Jamie Lee Curtis get to play that part,” Langenkamp said.
"You know, this age, where I think we have so much to give to those storylines, but yeah, I wish I was in control of that, but, unfortunately, it’s one of those Hollywood very complicated things."
Langenkamp has been drafted in by horror master Mike Flanagan for his new Netflix show 'The Midnight Club', who has openly talked about wanting to make a film in the 'Nightmare' franchise.
Langenkamp's Nancy Thompson met her fate at the glove of Freddy Krueger in 'Dream Warriors', but considering how the recent 'Halloween' films have ignored Jamie Lee Curtis' death in 'Halloween: Resurrection', nothing is off the table.
The other part of the equation is Freddy Krueger actor Robert Englund who has stated numerous times that he is "too old" to play Freddy Krueger again, but with such high fan demand and the prospect of a final payday for the veteran actor, it could only be a matter of time before we see Freddy and Nancy duke it out one last time.
Mr. Krueger has been dormant since the 2010 remake of 'A Nightmare On Elm Street' which saw 'Watchmen' star Jackie Earle Haley don the jumper and fedora for a film that was a financial hit, but neither impressed fans or critics.
With Krueger's fellow horror icon Michael Myers setting cash registers ringing at the box office, it is surely a matter of time before Freddy is back doing what he does best - battling teens in their nightmares.
