IGN UK posted an interview with original Nightmare writer/director Wes Craven, where Craven expressed his feelings over Platinum Dunes’ upcoming remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street:

“I don’t even know who’s doing it and I’m not interested. It’s actually really painful to think about it. It’s the film of mine that I probably love the most, and which made the most money. The script went around Hollywood for three years and nobody touched it and I went through all my life savings and everything else to pay for it, so I had to make the deal I did. Frankly, at that time I thought it would be one movie and that’s it. I never thought it would go on and on and on.”
