Bloody-Disgusting spoke to Robert Englund, known for playing Freddy Kruger in the “Nightmare on Elm Street” movies, who revealed that the sequel to “Freddy vs Jason” is still being discussed. But the possible new film will not be adding Ash from “Evil Dead,” instead the filmmakers have someone else in mind.
“There is no Ash,” said Englund. “That’s off the table because I think [Sam] Raimi is remaking Evil Dead.“
Well, that’s too bad, but who else could match up with Kruger and Jason Voorhees? “They were talking to John Carpenter which leads me to believe they would bring Michael Myers into the mix somehow,” revealed Englund. “I had heard one great story about maybe making it a little bit period [and] still having Jamie Lee Curtis alive as an adult and having her move somehow with a young Christina Ricci niece or something into Springwood. Then of course we could all be there and go after her. I’d like to throw down with Jamie Lee.“
