    Director Set For "Nightmare on Elm Street" Remake

    It seems the Platinum Dunes producers have finally found their "visual director" that will "blow people away" -- award-wining music videos and commercial director Samuel Bayer has been tapped to go behind the cameras for the Nightmare on Elm Street remake, which hopes to begin filming in May.

    Scripted by Wesley Strick (Arachnophobia, Cape Fear, Wolf), the film's story will have strong elements of the first movie, and is said to offer a more psychological approach. There's still no word on who will take over the role of Freddy. Read more on the remake here.

    Has this guy directed a feature film before, or JUST music videos/commercials? Deoderant and cereal are a hell of a lot easier to sell on people than a Nightmare remake.

    On the bright side, I bet he would do an excellent job if one of the kill scenes involved a huge bowl of corn flakes.

    The last time they gave a commercial/music video director a major motion picture to direct was that douche Michel Gondry (did videos for Chemical Brothers and Bjork), who wowed us with such gems as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep. Both in my opinion were unwatchable.

    On the other hand, Hype Williams directed Belly which left me wanting to see what he could do with another film.

    I'm conflicted about this remake more than any other. Just doesn't seem like a good idea.

    Just when I had a little hope for this film, they go out and get a fucking music director????

    I think they need to wait on this.

    Meh, guess we'll have to wait to see who gets cast as Freddy, then we'll know if this will go to shit or not.

    as far as i know freddy as a horror character has always been the twisted have fun while cuting you up kind of killer and as time went on was make a fool out of in bad nightmare movies.

    i would like england to come back as freddy but if he did it would end up repeating it self were as if he went with brand new actor he can possibley pull off a scarier freddy that is more sadistic. unfortantly with him saying he wanted to take it in a more psychological way has me thinking hes going to focus too much on the things we dont want to see when really all we want to see his freddy going to town on some half naked chicks sliceing them up. but as far as the comment goes about remake killing freddy, i would think the movies that followed after the 2nd one was enough to kill him off already esp the 3D one, that was terrible.
    would also like to point out that rob zombie who directed music videos with his partner did a desent job on house of the 1000 corpses so we shouldn't be too hastey on critising the guy just yet, you never know he might actualy pull off a good movie.

    I don't mind I just thing that a Freddy film has been long overdue. Remake or not, I'm all for it. And Platinum is a pretty good horror remake studio

    Vintage? Classic?
    It's a movie.
    A great movie that was made under legitmate duress, and limited funds.
    Remakes can work, so let's stop being so bloody judgemental. Did you know that an amazing artist by the name Eric Clapton has only one number one hit to his credit... which was a "remake" of a Bob Marley classic.
    Let us enjoy the VISION of new directors. We all know that we are going to watch these movies anyways. The only difference between the original and the remake is that we will probably only buy one copy of the DVD of the remake as opposed to the 27 different special editions of the original (Army of Darkness) we continue to purchase.
