In a recent interview with CraveOnline, producer Brad Fuller has opened up about the future of some of Platinum Dunes' projects such as The Purge 2, a new Friday the 13th, Ouija and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Fuller began with this little tidbit about the follow-up to last year's Ethan Hawke-starring dystopian horror, The Purge:

The sequel to The Purge delivers on the promise of the original in that we're not staying in the house. It's not a home invasion movie. This is you're out in the streets with people purging and a group of people who get stuck in the middle of it and have to get from point A to point B.

From there the conversation shifted towards Friday the 13th. Over the past few months we've heard some speculation that the next movie in the series will be done in the style of found footage. Is there any truth to the rumor?

It's something that we're looking at, yeah. I never know because it depends on the story and what the story is. It's been reported, that's something that we're looking into, but I can't tell you definitively that that's what the movie is.

Platinum Dunes also has the Ouija movie in production right now, about which Fuller commented:

Today is day 17 out of 25. We're shooting it here in Los Angeles. That is a fairly low-budgeted movie. It's in the Purge-ish range. It's the story that you think it is. It's the story about a group of kids who take out a Ouija board and start playing a game, and all hell breaks loose... In our movie, the Ouija board is a communication device. Our kids tap into something horrible and the Ouija board is the way that the entity comes in and is going to have to go out.

And talking of another installment in the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Fuller said:

You know what? I haven't heard a thing. It's a little bit disappointing. We were very proud of that movie. It was 's first starring role. In terms of pure box office, I think that's our highest grossing film worldwide. I'd love to do another one, but I feel that way about all of our films. We don't jump into these films unless we actually loved the characters or the story. I'd love to make Freddy Krueger movies every couple years. It'd be fantastic.

With nothing else planned Freddy, it might be some time before we hear anything about him again. Of course that's a shame, but with the last movie being what some might describe as a flop, perhaps it's best that we let it cool off for a bit.
