Confirmed: Jackie Earle Haley is Freddy Krueger!


April 4, 2009



Our sources told us that it was tricky locking him down, but Jackie Earle Haley - recently seen as Rorschach in Zack Snyder's Watchmen - is officially on board as Freddy Krueger in Platinum Dunes' A Nightmare on Elm Street.


Platinum Dunes' Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing with John Rickard co-producing. Samuel Bayer will direct from Wesley Strick's script, with lensing set to begin next month in Chicago.


Haley is the first cast member to sign up for this update of the milestone Wes Craven film. As we told you this afternoon, Kyle Gallner is not far behind. Creating Haley/Krueger's make-up is Andrew Clement - more details on him in this previous news item.


A Nightmare on Elm Street opens in theaters on April 16, 2010.
