New Freddy Krueger played by Jackie Earle Haley
 
Quote:

Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) will play the new Freddy Krueger in New Line Cinema's A Nightmare on Elm Street, scheduled for an April 16, 2010 release. The role was originally played by Robert Englund.

Samuel Bayer is directing the relaunch, which was written by Wesley Strick. The movie starts filming on May 5 in Chicago.

Looks like everyone's favorite psychopath from Watchmen will be the next Freddy. Really glad they picked a guy that can act. I hope the remake will be more like the orginal and be horror focused and not as silly as most of the sequels.

Maybe Robert Englund and Johnny Depp will have cameos? :)

He is a pretty good choice. There have been rumors for a while that he was being sought for it.

Another rumor--I don't know if it's a spoiler, so I'll code it:

Depp WAS willing to cameo in Freddy's Dead. Of course, his career is in a much different place now.

^ Nope. He's still going after their kids.

As good a choice for casting as could be, but for me Freddy will ALWAYS be Mr Englund.

We used to say Kirk would always be Shatner.

Then where would his glove come from then?

Huh. I have to admit, I'm a little surprised he would do it, but I agree he's a great choice.

Maybe, since he's the school janitor, they can be gardening gloves like Ned Flanders had in that one Simpsons episode!

Oh, f:censored: that! I mean, MAYBE it'll work, but the cool thing about Freddy was that he was completely UN-sympathetic. When are the people making these remakes ever going to learn: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"? Never, from the looks of it.

^ Here's more info on that.

It makes a little more sense, now.
