It’s entirely possible that Yu just happens to follow all the same geek sites as the rest of us, but the man is in abetter position than 99% of the idiots who post rumors online. Here’s hoping he knows more than most when it comes to his statement at the end of a recent interview with ComingSoon.net.
CS: Any chance you might direct a sequel to “Freddy vs. Jason” if New Line decides to do one?
Yu: Yeah, they’ve been talking about it, and they even talk about bringing Ash [from Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" movies] into the equation, and I thought it’s terrific. It’s almost like an updated version of “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.” If they really want to do it and they want me to do it, I’d love to do it. It would be a lot of fun.
