Nightmare on Elm Street
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!
Samuel Bayer's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street for Platinum Dunes officially wrapped today, causing much celebration amongst the cast and crew -- some of which producer Brad Fuller uploaded to Twitter.
Brad Fuller, one of the producers of Platinum Dunes' Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, has been busy Tweeting from behind the scenes. Along with answering a ton of the fans' questions, he also posted two shots of the film's stars, Kyle Gallner (Quentin) and Connie Britton (Nancy's mother, Marge Thompson).
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!
Though the Nightmare on Elm Street remake is still filming in Chi-town (Dread Central is on-set as I write this so expect some exclusive goodies soon), that hasn't stopped the powers-that-be from thinking sequel down the line.
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!
Freddy Krueger fans know what a huge role the church has played is his fictitious exploits, so it's only natural that Platinum Dunes find a suitably scary locale for his house of the unholy for the remake - Gary, Indiana's City Methodist Church!
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!”
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!
In what's shaping up to be more of a dream cast than any kind of nightmare for director Samuel Bayer, Platinum Dunes' Nightmare on Elm Street reboot just added another long-time genre fave to its roster: the inimitable Clancy Brown.
One two, Ruby's coming for you ... That's right, Freddy; you've got some stiff competition headed your way via "Supernatural"'s Katie Cassidy!
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.
