The 2003 movie was a hit, but it ended in a tie. Leaving Freddy fans and Jason fans disappointed. It was the last of both franchises until the Friday the 13th reboot in '09 but it wasn't as good as any of the other Friday the 13th films so it doesn't really count.
But with both icons going back to killing young teens? Will they come face to face again in the big screen? Let's see what we know so far...
Both movies are coming out in 2016 and both were made back in 2009-2010. Michael Bay was the producer of both films and rumors were out that they were trying to make a Freddy Vs. Jason movie reboot back then but since both movies were so bad, they canceled it! I don't think this rumor is true but, if it were true, then Hollywood has thought of making a Freddy Vs. Jason movie reboot for more than a decade! If they did make it though, with Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Kruger, then that movie would have bombed! (I'm not saying he's a bad actor)
So, with both slasher movie attempts, we still haven't seen a good movie reboot! Maybe if the new 2016 Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th movies coming out are good, we could have a Freddy Vs. Jason reboot in our hands! So will we ever see it? I think so, if the two movies do good at the Box Office and if they can nail Freddy in this one.
