PROJECT DETAILS
  • It's said that Freddy will have more realistic burn scars than the original, and he's less comedic and more serious in this version.
  • The film will supposedly detail a bit more backstory on Freddy.
  • Freddy actor Jackie Earle Haley is reportedly signed on to do a total of three Elm St. films.
  • Freddy in this film is described as "Nosferatu meets Ed Gaines."
  • Connie Britton plays Nancy's mother.
  • Katie Cassidy plays one of the lead females named "Kris".
  • Kyle Gallner plays the role that was made popular by Johnny Depp in the original.
  • Young actor Thomas Dekker will reportedly play "Jesse" a local jock on the swim team, who's trying to get back with his girlfriend.
  • Actor Jackie Earle Haley (Little Children, Watchmen) will be playing "Freddy Krueger."
  • Originally scripted by Wesley Strick (Arachnophobia, Cape Fear, Wolf), but rewritten by Eric Heisserer.
  • It's said the film will take a more psychological approach.
  • Once again this is a "re-imagining" of the original film, with hopes of giving the story a complete "overhaul."
  • Platinum Dunes (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, Friday the 13th remake) is behind this.
  • The franchise was also turned into a television series that ran for two seasons from 1988 to 1990, where Freddy played host to a collection of strange tales.
  • No relation to the Nightmare on Elm St. prequel that's supposedly "in talks" right now, although, I wouldn't be surprised if the two projects blended together.
  • A remake of the original 1984 Wes Craven film starring Robert Englund as the iconic Freddy Krueger.
