This is the most depressing news since the Patriots lost the Super Bowl less than 24 hours ago. The Nightmare on Elm Street remake rumors that have been buzzing about the past couple of weeks have been confirmed, but Robert Englund – the man who made that movie series good – won’t be involved.
Shock Til You Drop has the news straight from Platinum Dunes and New Line. This is a major bummer for fans. I can’t imagine anyone else playing Freddy with the same perfect mix of dry humor and terror. As lame as some of the sequels go, Freddy always made it entertaining.
