The NEW Freddy has been cast
The NEW Freddy has been cast for New Line/Platinum Dunes reboot of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, which begins to lens soon. Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) has been cast to play Freddy Kreguer, of course historically played by Robert Englund. Also, Kyle Gallner (The Haunting In Connecticut) has also been cast. This evening Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller updated his official blog responding directly to the fans regarding the casting choices. As you all now know, Haley is set to be your brand new Freddy Krueger, replacing the infamous Robert Englund as the child killer from Springwood. Gallner will play Quentin, the "Johnny Depp" character (who is also a podcast host) that's pairing up with Nancy to solve the mystery of the razor-glove wearing dream demon.
