While there's been plenty of coverage of the Platinum Dunes Nightmare on Elm Street remake kicking around the Interwebs, promotion of the film continues!
Just got out of the A Nightmare on Elm Street panel which featured Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, director Samuel Bayer and Freddy Krueger himself, Jackie Earle Haley. We got our first look at the new Freddy at the show via a clip but before we get to that let's talk about what was shown.

Fans anticipating the Platinum Dunes remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street directed by Samuel Bayer will soon have lots to get excited over ... starting ... right ... NOW!
Well, now. Can't really call this one a shocker (no relation to the other Wes Craven film). Just a few days ago we told you that should the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot do well at the box office, the new Nancy, Rooney Mara, would be back for two more films. You'll never guess who'll be joining her!
Jackie Earle Haley, the man who will be Krueger, has been busy lately. After his excellent turn as Rorschach in Watchmen, Platinum Dunes was pretty quick to snap him up for its A Nightmare on Elm Street remake, currently shooting in and around Chicago.
Michael Puente from Chicago-based Public Radio station KBEZ reported in from the Gary, Indiana, set of the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, and it looks like the project has generated mixed feelings among the townsfolk.
Ya see, now this is what I call an exclusive! Our brothers in harm over at JoBlo have nabbed themselves several behind-the-scenes images from Platinum Dunes' remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street including the first ever shots of Jackie Earle Haley as the pre-fire Freddy Krueger!
The casting call went out today to be an extra in Platinum Dunes' redux of the Wes Craven classic, A Nightmare on Elm Street and if you're in the Chi-town area you could very well fall victim to a set of really sharp razor claws!
Here we are again. It's almost too easy. Anyway, the first picture from the set of Platinum Dunes' reboot of the A Nightmare on Elm Street series has surfaced online, and you'll never guess who it is of!
Chicago is known for many things ... The Cubs, The Bulls, and El Famous Burrito: Home of the Football-sized Burrito. Well, okay that last one is only famous to me -- I had no idea what to do with that huge damned thing! Come May 5th the Windy City will have two more claims to fame when Platinum Dunes begins production there of Sam Bayer's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Some more casting news has broken for Samuel Bayer's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street starring the previously announced Jackie Earle Haley (Freddy) and Rooney Mara (Nancy). So who's the next bit of meat for the finger-knived beast?
One name that keeps being mentioned as a possible Freddy Krueger in the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street reboot is Jackie Earle Haley, and it's starting to look more and more like the role is his if rumors swirling around today on the Net can be believed.
