I had no idea about this, but Elijah Wood, best known for playing Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the rings trilogy, is a huge fan of horror movies. The actor had produced and starred in many dark and scary movies with SpecterVision and is currently looking forward to his new movie. No man of god to make its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The promotion of this particular project is what sparked a conversation about his desire to bring Freddy Krueger back to our nightmares with another reboot of a nightmare on elm street and also expressed his desire to take on the role of Stephen King The corn boys.
Wood spoke with “ComicBook.com“and had this to say about his drive to remake any of those movies:
“We have personally talked a lot, internally, about Elm Street and how amazing it would be to play in that universe again and see that universe, see Freddy. [Krueger] and that concept will be explored again. That is something that fascinates us. Obviously, that is not something smaller and less known that needs to be transformed into a large one. But another one that I feel is exciting, I know a remake is already coming out, but we still love it The corn boys. I feel like it would be an exciting thing … from scratch, taking it from the novel, not remaking the movie, but actually taking the story and developing it in an interesting way. “
a nightmare on elm street I already got a poorly received remake in 2010 and I suspect that any ideas Wood has for another reboot would have to be better than that final product. The a nightmare on elm street The legacy began with the Wes Craven classic in 1984 and then spawned seven official sequels, a television series, and the aforementioned reboot. Stephen King’s The corn boys, originally a short story from his “Night Shift” collection, has been the basis for 11 films in total, and most of them have received mediocre reviews.
Wood also went on to talk about his love for darker horror movies and wishes that other people were as passionate about them as he was. The actor went on to say “One of my favorite movies, and not something I necessarily want to redo, but one of my favorite movies that went straight to VHS during the great direct-to-VHS horror blast of the 1980s, there’s a movie called ‘Truth or Dare ?: Critical Insanity‘by Tim Ritter. I think it sticks in my mind because I saw it when I was six and it left an impression on me. But I really love it. And I’ve introduced it to so many people and it has its fans. It’s not that dark, but I don’t know if I wanted to redo it. When I think of these lesser known movies, that one always stands out as a special little gem. “
Wood’s love of the horror genre is pretty good to watch and maybe he could be the guy to give us a fresh perspective. a nightmare on elm street or The corn boys. Like I said, it’s probably better than some of the ramifications we’ve already received.
