I have no idea what gives Platinum Dunes the faux confidence to think they can do Wes Craven one better with their upcoming (and woefully unnecessary) redux of A Nightmare on Elm Street, but it’s on its way to movie theaters faster than you can say “Friday the 13th sucked!”
In today’s Elm Street update, Variety reports that Connie Britton has joined the cast in the pivotal role of Mrs. Thompson (Marge in the 1984 original, played by Ronee Blakley), Nancy’s mother.
The remake is slated for an April 2010 release date and stars Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, and Jackie Earle Haley as the new Freddy Krueger.
What do you think? Is there a chance in hell this will be a worthy addition to the character’s legacy? Or could it dethrone Freddy vs. Jason as Krueger’s most embarrassing hour?
