Robert Englund talks about a script he wrote for Nightmare On Elm Street 3!!

Robert Englund wrote a treatment for what would have been the third entry in Wes Craven’s A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series, called A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: FREDDY’S FUNHOUSE.

Robert Englund says:

I submitted [a script] back in the day, around [A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors], which would be the older sister of the character Tina from Nightmare 1, would return to the franchise, or would be introduced to the franchise as a kind of collegiate, X-Files Nancy Drew, because she was on this obsessed quest to find out what really happened to her sister.

The problem with that script is I wrote it a long time ago and her detective skills are now antiquated. The things that I had her do that I thought were novel and new and cool are antiquated, because I wrote this back in the ’90s, so now I wouldn’t be able to update because it’s not as advanced as the stuff she would use. But it would be interesting for someone to try to solve what happened, looking back, and you could even have her older now. You could have her be a graduate student, 28 years old, and just wondering what happened to her little sister all those years ago. It would be fun to do.
