Who's The Next Freddy Krueger?
This one is just too good to pass up. I've never seen any of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies (although I have seen Freddy Vs. Jason), but there has been talk for a little while about a remake coming out in the next couple of years. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake did well enough to bring back interest in all of these classic series, and the Friday the 13th remake is already in post production, set for release next year.
But who will wear the knifed glove of Freddy Krueger in the remake? Robert Englund, the actor who played Freddy in all of the films, went on a couple of radio shows the other day and told people that none other than Billy Bob Thorton is in talks for the role. There's no real confirmation other than Englund just blabbering, but how ridiculous would that be if it actually happened? Would this increase or decrease your desire to see the movie if/when it gets made?
