Nightmare Casting on Elm Street?
Some folks call it a knife glove, he calls it…a paycheck? Joblo.com reports that the man with the
original razorblade hand, Robert Englund, has said on the radio show Loveline that Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton may be in talks to play everybody’s
favorite burn victim Freddy Krueger in the upcoming remake of Nightmare on Elm
Street by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes production company. Fans of the original Nightmare movies are deeply divided about the remake, currently slated for 2010, and some are especially irked that Englund is not expected to be asked back. However, Englund also said that he would not mind being replaced, since after seven movies playing Freddy, he’s been there, done that.—Movietimes.com Movie News Bureau
