"Nightmare on Elm Street" Reboot Gets Release Date

Posted: March 5th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Nightmare on Elm Street" Reboot Gets Release DateSubmit Comment
Warner Bros Pictures has announced that the theatrical release date for the upcoming "A Nightmare on Elm Street" reboot has been set for April 16th, 2010. The slot leaves the film currently on its own, with the nearest competition coming from "Clash of the Titans" (March 26th, 2010) and "Iron Man 2" (May 7th, 2010).

The new movie is a re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.

Producer Brad Fuller recently revealed that the goal is to change Krueger's back-story, with the original Freddy's gruesome origins revolving around him victimizing the children of Elm Street, which lead the neighborhood's parents to gang up and burn him alive.

Said Fuller: "The concept of the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' wouldn't work. The concept of the movie is the kids discovering what happened, and the kids paying the price for their parent's sins. What we're struggling with is how we have his crimes in a way where the kids can't just type in 'Freddy Krueger' [into Google] and come up with his arrest record."

But wouldn't kids today just avoid Freddy altogether by using crystal meth and never sleeping?

Maybe they should get really gross, distrubing and dark for the remake and just tell it like it is. Freddys a child serial killer. Jackie Earle Haley has already played a pedophile in little children, this would be fitting. Thats if they chose him for the part. I mean what else could be more disturbing and uptodate.
