Platinum Dunes NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Remake Official! Starts Shooting Spring 2009!

Shock Till You Drop recently sat down and chatted with Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller & Andrew Form and the duo confirmed that rights issues have been cleared for A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and that will be their next project. Back in July, Wesley Strick was announced as the writer of the new "re-imagining".

Fuller told Shock, "It’s like what we’re doing to FRIDAY THE 13TH. It’s not Freddy cracking jokes. We want to make a horrifying movie. The concept is so scary, don’t fall asleep or you’ll die. This guy gets you when you’re most vulnerable, in your sleep. We love that. That’s the basis of the movie. It’ll be most similar to the first one but in terms of kills and dreams we’ll borrow from the entire series."

The article also confirms that with the reboot will come a new Freddy Krueger. However, the pair are hopeful that Robert Englund will participate in some fashion, most likely a cameo as Englund has said in public he’d love to do. Full article on SHOCK’s site HERE!

    OMG! why would ne one want to ruin a good thing.casting fred kruger with another actor is insane.there is not a single human being that could pull that off.the way he moves,the way he sounds,the way he carries himself is not something i think some one else could do.thats my thoughts on this.i will watch the movie,i will be in line for it the day it comes out to see how it turns out.but i just dont think robert englund should be replaced,even if he is ok with it.but hey good luck on that i guess
