Mike Flanagan has been in the news a lot and this is no exception. From the critical success and commercial failure of Doctor Sleep to the news that he was one of the people considered for the directing gig for the new Halloween.
When the news broke that the Craven estate is actively trying to get Freddy Krueger back on the silver screen he even tweeted that he wanted a crack at it.
When Flanagan and his wife actress Kate Siegel were on “The Boo Crew” from Bloody Disgusting, he was asked about the tweet and without giving away any kind of news about what the pitch was, he said, “I got a killer idea.”
With his wife adding; “Oh, it’s so good”.
Flanagan went on to say;
“[I’m] dying to get in there to pitch it,” Flanagan continues. “If I got to do this it would be so cool.”
No idea who is all throwing their hats into the ring when it comes to the revival of the Springwood Slasher, but on a personal note, Flanagan would be my go-to guy. Blame for Doctor Sleep can’t be laid upon his shoulders, at least not entirely.
