Run, Insomniac Teenagers! It’s the New Freddy Krueger!

Run, kids! It’s your first look at Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger! Okay, so it’s a very dark, shadowy, and not all that revealing look. But hey, check it out, Freddy’s got his raggy sweater and fedora, and those knives still look pretty sharp. The pic is posted by the reboot’s director Samuel Bayer himself over at Myspace.

Starring Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Clancy Brown, Connie Britton, Lia D. Mortensen, Charles E Tiedje, and directed by Samuel Bayer. Freddy does his thing all over again April 16, 2010.

Update: Later in the day, IGN debuted the teaser poster for the reboot:

    JEH is gonna rock as Freddy. I always thought Freddy had the potnential to be a terrifying character but they made him a joke. This looks to correct that and give people real nightmares again.

    It could still be Robert Englund and we didn’t even know; I want to see his face. Please don’t do another teen movie full of boobs like Friday the 13th remake.

    From what I’ve been reading we’re getting a more realistic looking Freddy (i.e. the burns will look even more horrendous) and that we’re getting his backstory and it’s alot more disturbing than what we got in the Final Nightmare.
