    First Leatherface. Then Jason. Now Freddy

    new origin because of the internet...then why not make it a continuation...the last movie was pre-internet (i think) so that would work...

    Why would there be an arrest record if the parents ganged up on him as a mob to burn him to death? Seems more like it'd be a dark hidden secret, not a publicly known enough thing to look up on the net.

    I seem to remeber newspaper cuttings in freddy vs jason that said he was arrested but set free.

    I still want Robert Englund back, but i'll give whoever takes over the fedora a chance...

    *EDIT* And why does it not seem to occur to these guys that they could always, you know, set it in the past...

    Bingo! Bollywood needs to quit trying to make their stuff more "intelligent". A guy is killing kids from inside their dreams! Realism is on vacation at this point.

    I didn't think the remakes of TCM were that bad. I enjoyed them actually. As far as remaking Friday the 13th...gonna have to wait til dvd til judge...but I really should go based on the TF trailer...hmmm. Now as for Nightmare on Elm St.... Robert Englund is, was, and always will be the only Freddy. IF they replace him with someone else...I don't know what I will think til I see it. All I know is...some classics need to be left alone.

    The producers claim to be enthusiastic for his participation in the film, but not to play Freddy character in the beginning (perhaps they are intending on seeing a young Freddy first).

    Robert Englund seems keen to see something different for Freddy though - he's quoted in this months Empire magazine saying "..if I see Freddy running around in the remake and the make-up looks like me, and he's wearing the same fucking hat and sweater, I'm going to be disappointed..."

    Ooops. My bad...

    I was thinking of the episode Once Upon a Joe where Shipwreck tells orphans a story. He mocks Leatherneck and Wet Suit. Calls them Leatherhead and FrogFace

    The TCM remake wasn't too bad, and the F13 remake doesn't look like it'll be too bad either, so this shouldn't, in theory, be too bad. Personally, there are very few movies I hope never get remade, and I'm ok with most remakes that are done. I still think that the Wizard of Oz should be remade, and by Tim Burton.

    Dude,calm down. There is always the..original to watch.
    It's not like you have to go watch it,only you can dictate
    what you want to watch.


    Now anywho,I don't think Englund not coming back is a problem IMO,
    because the person who will play Freddy is going to be under make up
    and prosthetic(s). The only thing I am worried about now in relation
    to Freddy for the remake is that the person who is going to play him
    have an acceptable voice. I am not too attached to movie stars,but
    I don't want some actor casted with an annoying voice to play Freddy.
    And second of all,I hope he doesn't crack a joke or jokes.
    I'm pretty sure the key people who will be involved in making the movie
    aren't foolish enough to redesign Freddy to the point that it is bad quality.
    Slight alterations to me is fine,I think Freddy can do without the hat this time.
    THE GLOVE MUST STAY. I hope it looks good.

    I'm wondering if they'll redo Freddy's look to include CGed holes in him, like Imhotep in The Mummy, and Two-Face in The Dark Knight. Lose the sweater, but keep the hat. Fedoras are classic.
