A Nightmare on Elm Street is being rebooted by New Line

08.05.2015by: Eric Walkuski

As with any rumor, take this with a grain of salt until we get confirmation from the studio. In the meantime... oy.

The Tracking Board reports New Line Cinema is planning on remaking/rebooting A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. David Leslie Johnson (ORPHAN, the upcoming DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS film) is evidently the screenwriter toiling away on the new take, while Toby Emmerich, Walter Hamada, and Dave Neustadter will oversee for New Line.

Tracking Board claims this film is "going back to the drawing board, working to create a remake worthy of the original." So, yes, just another NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake.

It's unclear whether or not Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes will be involved. It's incredibly unlikely Jackie Earle Haley will reprise his role from the 2009 remake, and perhaps he should thank his lucky stars for that. (For my money, he wasn't what was wrong with that movie.) Let's see how this one develops.

of course i'm always happy to see NoES on the big scream for a new generation of horrorhounds to enjoy.
The first remake was a freakin' disaster in every way and you're right Earl Haley did the best with what they gave him. It was just sad how in this new era of technology how unimaginative and sloppy the dream sequences were. NoES 3 beat out all of the remakes scenes on practical FX. respect.

The 2009 remake was actually alright. It's not bad but not good either. For me it didn't capture the magic of what the original A Nightmare On Elm Street. It lacked a Tongue in Cheek humor. The 2009 remake was a full on horror movie. I wonder who will be the new Freddie Krueger. I'd love to see Bryan Cranston tackles the role.

...or not develops...

Jackie Earl Haley was NOT the problem with the 2009 remake... i think it was partly the makeup, but the movie was just a dull forgettable rehash... just keep the damn series going and switch actors, everybody knows Freddy's origin already so just make him go after a new set of kiddies.

No thanks!

It is obviously inevitable that this will happen but hey you never know, it may be good.

Probably not but it could...
