Ari Aster And Freddy Krueger Are Both On Justin Long's Horror Bucket List
As a man battling a career-ending accusation who is measuring the undiscovered basement of his house to resell it at a higher price, Justin Long is "Barbarian’s" comedic relief. Despite his spirited personality, Long has a history of working in horror movies and is now interested in tackling a few classic horror villains as well.
Being a big fan of "Hereditary," Long is eager to work with horror veteran Ari Aster, describing the movie as "one of the most unsettling movies" he'd ever seen. Long also said he would want to work with "iconic monster[s] like Freddy Krueger or Jason or Michael Myers. It would be a thrill to get a selfie with Freddy."
Long is also interested in playing "a more obvious monster" due to his curiosity about special-effects makeup and prosthetics and hopes to work with special effects artists like Robert Kurtzman and Oscar-winning makeup artist Bill Corso. We can probably expect Long to transform into quite a terrifying entity soon.
