Rumor Control: Strick Not Directing "ELM STREET" Remake

Some quick rumor control as last night Variety incorrectly reported that Wesley Strick would be directing New Line Cinema's remake of "A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET", which we've confirmed is untrue. Strick is currently penning the remake, which still doesn't have Platinum Dunes attached to produce.
The films' premise centers on Freddy Krueger, a serial child killer murdered by angry parents, who returns with a burnt face and a razor glove to terrorize teens in their dreams.

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
