    Very good choice. I'm really glad that he's making such a comeback.

    Not a bad casting. Feel bad for the guy (or anyone that takes on the role), he's gonna have a hard time living up to Englund's portrayal.

    Well from what I understand behind the concept with this iteration of The Nightmare on Elm Street Film is that the existing genesis of The Dream Walker is to be from a new perspective.

    There are 5 Teens in the film that are targeted by Kruger directly

    - The Elder & Younger Sister from the 1st film
    - The motorcycle guy, the guy who vanishes into his bed
    - The teen from the 2nd film

    We are all aware, that in the films it was established that Kruger was an predator; and was killed by the parents in the neighborhood. But what I've heard is that what if the monster that killis the teens of Elm street in their sleep was born from the rage of a person who was innocent.

    Never thought of him as a potential pick for the role, but now that I think about it, he fits really well. Though there is bound to be many people who are going to compare him to the past FK's. I'm going to remain open minded, although I already have a good feeling about him getting the role. Here's hoping they can make Freddy scary again.

    This sounds promising. And the more I picture it, the more he seems to fit the role of before Kruger.

    My interest in this project just increased a lot.

    Remember that Billy Bob Thornton rumor? Rorshach here is a complete upgrade.

    Nice, he was my favorite part of Watchmen and the dude is a great actor. Can't wait to see his Freddy.

    I love this casting, however I am less sure of the script. I'm not sure I like the idea of Freddy being innocent. Its hard to accept an innocent man doing the sorts of things Freddy does to people who are themselves innocent.

    Great news. Haley is brilliant.

    Here's for irony: Jackie Earle Haley actually auditioned for the original movie back in the 80s. His friend Johnny Depp came along to the audition just for the hell of it and accidentally got the role Haley tried out for without even intending to act professionally.

    I would still prefer Englund, but if they have to go with someone else, he certainly has the potential do the job right. I guess there is too much "cheese" baggage associated with Englund's Freddy, so they felt the need to start fresh. I'm presuming that this new Freddy won't joke around very much.

    Englund was so great in the first film, but those sequels. . .man. . .

    I reserve judgement, as the guy who is writing it also wrote Doom.
