Jason Blum says he “could make” Robert Englund play Freddy Krueger again.
The ‘Insidious’ producer thinks he could bring the ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ actor back to the franchise – who recently played the legendary horror character in a 2018 episode of ABC sitcom ‘The Goldbergs’ – ’cause he “can get somebody back”
The 53-year-old movie executive told Screen Rant, “I could bring him back. I can bring anyone back.”
Jason cited his previous success bringing other stars back to reboots of movie classics while calling the 75-year-old actor “young”.
He added: “Ellen Burstyn was 87 and I picked her up in The Exorcist.”
“Yeah, 75– he’s young!”
Earlier this month, Robert shared how he got “slapped” for giving away too much information about the final season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” after appearing in the “horror tribute 80’s”.
He said: “This season is a tribute to 80s horror. some Stranger Things fans were asking me such specific questions that I just assumed other actors had already talked about it, so I got my hands slapped for it.
The ‘Choose or Die’ star admitted he used to “have fun” scaring audience members while filming as Freddie, such as freaking out servers during lunch breaks.
Robert said, “But while filming, we were definitely having fun. While doing the first movie, I got sick of the food service, so Nick Corri, Johnny Depp and I walked across Sunset Boulevard and sat in the back of this dark Thai restaurant. I took the hat off, we ordered and when the waiter opened the kitchen doors I was illuminated by bright fluorescent lighting. The waiter looked at me intently, dropped his tray, backed into the kitchen and we never saw him again.
