The estate of the late Wes Craven is looking to get a new A Nightmare On Elm Street movie moving.

It looks like we haven’t seen the last of Freddy Krueger.

We all know that movie monsters are supposed to be hard to kill, but Freddy Krueger and The Nightmare on Elm Street series have proved more durable than other horror sagas of their era, spawning a clutch of sequels, a revisionist take by its original creator, a remake and a TV series. Oh, and not to mention the series antagonist, Freddy’s cinematic dust-up with Friday the 13th terror, Jason Vorhees in 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason. 

Now it seems like another return to Elm Street may be on the cards as Dark Horizons is reporting that the estate of the late Wes Craven, series creator, have acquired the rights to the property and are actively looking for pitches to move into production.

Reportedly, television pitches are being considered alongside film ideas and Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision production company are just one outfit who are involved in the process. More news on this one as we have it.
