Some familiar Jurassic World faces will return for round three. There’s good news for Avenue 5 fans. Robert Englund makes his one pitch for returning to Freddy Krueger. Doctor Who teases the rise of the Cybermen. Plus, what’s to come in another Gotham City, on Batwoman. Happy spoilentine’s day, spoiler lovers!
Collider reports Jurassic World stars Jake Johnson and Omar Sy will reprise their roles as Lowry and Barry in Jurassic World 3.
In conversation with Entertainment Weekly, Robert Englund stated he doesn’t think he’ll “ever don the makeup again” to play Freddy Krueger but has a specific role in mind if they ever decide to remake Dream Warriors.
I don’t think I’ll ever don the makeup again. I’m a little too old for that. I’m a little long in the tooth to play Freddy now. I think if I was doing it, it would be more like Freddy vs. Viagra.
I would love to be invited back if they decide to reboot A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: The Dream Warriors. I would love to come back and maybe play the dream analyst (the character of Dr. Elizabeth Simms, played by Elizabeth Pointer), the woman in the therapy sessions who doesn’t believe that there can be such a thing as a collective nightmare that’s common to a group of people. I think it would be fun for the fans, it would be fun for me to play the part originally played by a woman and do a flip on that. I think there’s kind of a tradition in the horror genre of cameos like that, so that would be fun for me. But I have no idea whether they’re going to go on and create completely new stories or whether they’re going to go back and do prequels or origin stories on the Freddy Krueger myth. I don’t know what they’re up to. So, I’m just waiting to hear.
Paul Feig recently spoke to Collider about his intentions for Universal’s Dark Army.
I really want this to bring the same feeling that those old monster movies that I loved growing up watching [did]. I’m not as interested in doing a horror movie as I am in doing a true monster film. So, hopefully that will see the light of day. You never know in Hollywood these days, but I love it. I’m very excited about it. I’m excited about the characters that I’ve created and about some of the ones that I’ve been able bring over from the old movies.
