New Line Releases the ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Remake Narrative


I’m still as apprehensive about this movie as ever and, the TV spots and trailers are not easing my pain. In fact the more I see the more worried I get. In less than two weeks the new Freddy hits the cinema, whether I like it or not. A Nightmare on Elm Street opens April 30th. Are we all holding our breath or is it just me?

“Nancy, Kris, Quentin, Jesse and Dean all live on Elm Street. At night, they’re all having the same dream–of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face and a gardener’s glove with knives for fingers. And they’re all hearing the same frightening voice…

One by one, he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his, and the only way out is to wake up.

But when one of their number dies a violent death, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real, and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Turning to each other, the four surviving friends try to uncover how they became part of this dark fairytale, hunted by this dark man. Functioning on little to no sleep, they struggle to understand why them, why now, and what their parents aren’t telling them.

Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due, and to save themselves, they will have to plunge themselves into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all… Freddy Krueger.

New Line Cinema presents a Platinum Dunes Production, “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” a contemporary re-imagining of the seminal horror classic, starring Academy Award® nominee Jackie Earle Haley (“Little Children,” “Watchmen”) as Freddy Krueger. The film is directed by award-winning music video and commercial director Samuel Bayer (Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”), marking his feature film directorial debut.

A talented ensemble of young actors play the teenagers now taking on Freddy Krueger, led by Rooney Mara (“Urban Legend: Bloody Mary”) as Nancy, Kyle Gallner (“The Haunting in Connecticut”) as Quentin, Katie Cassidy (“Taken,” TV’s “Supernatural” & “Melrose Place”) as Kris, Thomas Dekker (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) as Jesse, and Kellan Lutz (“Twilight,” “The Twilight Saga: New Moon”) as Dean.

The parents of the Elm Street kids are played by a talented supporting cast featuring veteran actor Clancy Brown (“Highlander,” “The Shawshank Redemption”), Connie Britton (“Friday Night Lights”), and Lia D. Mortensen.

Bayer directed “A Nightmare on Elm Street” from a screenplay by Wesley Strick and Eric Heisserer, story by Strick. “A Nightmare on Elm Street” is based on characters created by Wes Craven in the 1984 sleeper horror hit of the same name. That film went on to become one of the horror genre’s longest-running, most successful and innovative film series.

The film is produced by Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, whose company has enjoyed tremendous success with a host of re-imagined horror franchises, including “Friday the 13th,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” and “The Amityville Horror.” The executive producers are Mike Drake, Robert Shaye, Michael Lynne, Richard Brener, Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter, with John Rickard serving as co-producer.

The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Jeff Cutter (“Orphan”), production designer Patrick Lumb (“Valkyrie,” “The Omen”), editor Glen Scantlebury (“Transformers,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), costume designer Mari-An Ceo (“Friday the 13th,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning”), visual effects supervisor Sean Faden (“The Amityville Horror”), special makeup effects artist Andrew Clement (“Star Trek,” “Cloverfield”), and special effects coordinator John Milinac (“Friday the 13th,” “The Amityville Horror”). The music is by Steve Jablonsky (the “Transformers” movies, “Friday the 13th).
