A Nightmare on Elm Street theatrical release

Warner Brothers releases this new horror film, the latest remake produced by Michael Bay (who has given us updated versions of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and THE HITCHER, among others). Jackie Earle Haley (WATCHMEN) toplines as Freddy Krueger, bastard son of a thousand maniacs. Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, and Katie Cassidey are among the potential victims, with Clancy Brown (HIGHLANDER) along for support. Samuel Bayer directs from a screenplay by Wesley Strick and Eric Heisserer. Wes Craven, creator of the original, gets only a “based on characters created by” credit, although the trailer suggests a point-by-point remake.
