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

16 Comments

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:

    What a waste of time. Why doesn’t anyone in Hollywood get an original idea. Instead we have to watch lame re-make’s of great films. Does this piss anyone else off? Someone in showbiz needs to get some balls and take chance on a new idea.

      Simply put there’s really no such thing anymore. Just about everything is inspired by, a different version of , or was based on something else. And when people do take chances it seems they never pan out. Too many people to piss off. Taking something in a new direction usually alienates the fans of the original product. I don’t like that it seems EVERYTHING is being remade, but some stuff wouldn’t be horrible. But really it just looks like the 80′s nostalgia has hit hollywood later than the rest of the country and they’re trying to relive their glory days. This one I’m looking forward to as I’d like to see a SCARY FREDDY KRUEGER film again.
