With horror hybrids all the rage, New Line Cinema is plotting a new showdown between Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. According to The Hollywood Reporter, studio execs are in talks with Spider-Man helmer Sam Raimi for a sequel that would pit the two horror icons against Ash, the antihero at the center of Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy. If Raimi passes, word is New Line will merely introduce another character or just stage a new face-off between Freddy and Jason. Worst-case scenario: They'll be forced to come up with a completely original idea. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.
