Jackie Earle Haley is the New Freddy Krueger

FREDDY  LES GRIFFES DE LA NUIT Jackie Earle Haley is the New Freddy Krueger Jackie Earle Haley ("WATCHMEN") will play the new Freddy Krueger in New Line Cinema's "A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET", scheduled for an April 16, 2010 release. The role was originally played by Robert Englund.

Samuel Bayer is directing the relaunch, which was written by Wesley Strick. The movie starts filming on May 5 in Chicago.

"THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT" star Kyle Gallner has been cast as Quentin in the film as well.

Platinum Dunes' Andrew Form and Brad Fuller are producing. John Rickard is co-producing.

"Looking at his performance in 'Watchmen,' here's a guy playing a character under a mask yet you feel tremendous empathy for him," Bayer told The Hollywood Reporter. "And in 'Nightmare,' he is going to be under prosthetic make-up. You have to feel something for the character. The greatest villains are multi-dimensional and I think he will bring that to the character."

Bayer called this take of Krueger "Nosferatu meets Ed Gaines."

Synopsis : Nancy, Kris, Quentin, Jesse, and Dean all live on Elm Street. At night they're all having the same dream -- of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face, and a gardener's glove with knives for fingers. And they're all hearing the same frightening voice... One by one he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his and the only way out is to wake up. But when one of their number dies a violent death, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real, and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Turning to each other, the four surviving friends try to uncover how they became part of this dark fairy tale, hunted by this dark man. Functioning on little to no sleep, they struggle to understand why them, why now, and what their parents aren't telling them. Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due, and to save themselves, they will have to plunge themselves into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all... Freddy Krueger.

French Release : 2010-05-12 | US Release : 2010-04-27
