SDCC: Craven Not Involved with Elm Street Remake


Platinum Dunes still haven’t negotiated the rights…

Ironically, mere minutes after Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form told the audience in Ballroom 20 at Comic-Con International that they’re trying to negotiate the rights to remake Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, Wes Craven was sitting on the same podium and when he was asked by a member of the audience about said remake, he said that he hasn’t been contacted and that they were going ahead and talking about a remake without his involvement which was received by nearly unanimous “boos.” will be talking with Fuller and Form in the next hour or two and we’ll ask them for their comments on trying to do a remake without the original creator’s involvement, if this is indeed true. Who knows? Maybe we can arrange some sort of meeting between the three of them and get this thing going in a way that can make everyone happy.

Stay tuned to Shock for more info later today!
