While we wait for the various rumors and reports about who will be portraying Freddy Krueger in the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street reboot to play out, at least one thing has been confirmed: Makeup FX for the project will be handled by Andrew Clement of Creative Character Engineering.
According to STYD, Clement got the gig based on his previous work on such genre projects as Cloverfield, Repossession Mambo, and “Dexter”.
As reported previously, principal photography for Platinum Dunes’ take on Nightmare on Elm Street is scheduled to begin on April 27th, 2009, in the Chicago area. Samuel Bayer, who’s best known for his music videos, will be directing from a script by Wesley Strick, co-writer of Doom and Wolf, among others.
