'NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET': New FREDDY KRUEGER Announced

'NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET': New FREDDY KRUEGER Announced


Source: Coming Soon

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.

JACKIE EARLE HALEY kicked ass in the very underrated THE WATCHMEN movie and I strongly suspect that he’s going to continue kicking ass as the new FREDDY KRUEGER.

If you haven’t had a chance to see Watchmen yet I strongly recommend hitting the theater as it should be absorbed and enjoyed on the big screen. It might even be in the bargain theater by now. Criticism of the movie has only confirmed to me (as it did with CLOVERFIELD) that people will bitch about anything no matter how great.

  1. agreed! watchmen was AMAZING! and its definatley soemthign that should be seen onthe big screen – in fact it is now in imax here – i mightgo see it again on the eve bigger screen

    and i dont get how critics can go ona nd on and bitch about this movie yet hail a peice of shit like benjmain button….the violence was neceesary…and what does a movie better than a fw steamy love scenes…thers nothign to bitch about – i mean jesus chrits look at hostel – *puke noises*


  2. I am sad at the loss of Englund. Will he at least make a Cameo?


  3. I just hope they do not mess it up. Now if Rob Zombie is the director then it could be really good like what he did for holloween. Yet I want to stress do no make it all crappy like or freddy will make it a nightmare on your street.


  4. I just saw the preview for th movie and Krueger looks like Scarecrow off of The Dark Knight. That is soo not cool. Robert Englund will always be the best and only Freddy Krueger


  5. This is the most disapointing thing i have come to see in my life.Robert Englund is freddy and dudes makup dosnt evan look like the realy freddy. It’s my opion that this movie should be called Freddy’s Nightmare: Death of a legend….. why rob why didnt you do this move to keep your legacy from being destroyed.


  6. i want robert back the new guy sucks, i cant give him a chance at all robert was the only person who played freddy for over 20 yrs…….


  7. dude idk i wasnt too sure about the halloween remake but that came out great! and we cant have rob zombie direct every horror movie remake cuz (no offense i love his remakes) then all the characters would be some version of white trash or sumtin and really that does get old for horror movies lets just see wut happens with this movie not like its da end of the world


  8. Robert says he to old but he can still do the voice, if he does the voice and they have a lesson on the makeup mabye it will make it beter. But I also saw the preweiw. Boy they screw it up freddy didn’t diny he killed children he was the spingwood slasher for crying out! I hope they incule the blood fountain other rise I have to bury freddy for good. :'{


  9. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    THEY ARE RUINING IT!!!!!! IT IS THE BEST MOVIE COLLECTION EVER AND Robert Englund is freddy !!!!! THERE WILL ONLY BE ‘ONE’ TRUE FREDDY!!!!! ūüė¶
