    Agreed. Robert Englund is Freddy Krueger. It's like making a Star Trek movie with someone other than William Shatner as Kirk or a Sergeant Bilko movie with someone other than Phil Silvers. You just get someone playing a role
    instead of what made the character interesting in the first place.

    That's why he retired from the role, he felt like he was too old to be chasing teenagers around anymore.

    In addition to that being an issue, it is just a franchise that is in a corner when it comes to that particular aspect of the story.

    On paper, a Freddy Krueger who is dead should never have aged a single day over the entire course of the franchise.

    All of that being before you even get to how far you can take the series without some particularly inventive writing.

    Robert Englund had a decent idea for a Freddy sequel/reboot.

    I would have cast different actors to play Freddy for every potential victim. Because Freddy is only alive in the imagination of his future victim. They would talk about it at a slumber party or in a locker room at school, or on the bus going home. All we know about this Fred Krueger is he wears a hat, wears a red and green striped sweater and has a clawed hand. That’s the specifics…So it could be a red and green cardigan for one Freddy. It could be an old tattered baseball cap for another Freddy. Freddy could be tall, he could be short, he could be overweight, he could be muscular. Every one of the victims could have a different Freddy they imagined. And you could haunt them with that Freddy.

    ...

    At the end, it would be the ultimate victim and we see Freddy peel his face open and maybe it’s yours truly revealed…And it’s the essence of Freddy.

    A reboot of a reboot?
    The Gypsies had no home. The Doors had no bass.

    Does our reality determine our fiction or does our fiction determine our reality?

    Whenever the question comes up about who some mysterious person is or who is behind something the answer will always be Frank Stallone.
