Robert Englund Talks About The Possibility Of 'Freddy Vs. Jason. Vs. Ash'
Horror legend Robert England, who is best known for playing Freddy Krueger, talked to Syfy Portal the other day about how there was serious talk into bringing the Freddy Krueger franchise and the Evil Dead franchises' together into a movie but talk eventually died down. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
"Of course, the fans in the audience couldn’t resist asking when or if Freddy would be coming back to the big screen. "Ah, the obligatory Freddy question," Englund responded. Then explained that for a while there were plans on bringing Freddy Krueger and the Evil Dead movies together. "But now Sam Raimi is working on reintroducing 'The Evil Dead' to a new audience with a bigger budget" than he had originally, Englund said. So there is currently no green light on any Freddy movies."
I think fans are just dying to see Ash one more time, and I think even the hardcore-purist Evil Dead fans are even wanting this film to happen. It seems that the only reason why Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash isn't getting made is because Sam Raimi won't hand the rights of the character 'Ash' over to the studio execs. This may be because Sam wants to do The Evil Dead IV when he's done with Spider-Man 3 or because he not interested in revisiting the franchise and getting down and dirty to make a low budget film.
