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.┬áBut 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.
