Jackie Earle Haley Knows – ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Remake Info

Apparently, Jackie Earle Haley knows that the Scrooge McDuck voice he was using for Freddy only evoked chuckles from us, because he admits they are still working on it. Rorschach (Haley) tells Sci-Fi Wire :
“We’re still working on it. There’s still more [additional dialogue recording] stuff to do, so it’s an ongoing process, I think, until it comes out.”

And even though I think they should be well in post-production, Haley goes on to say the re-shoots aren’t anything to be alarmed about.

“Just some re-shoots and tweaks that I think are probably customary for pretty much every movie that gets made.”

I don’t know, I’m still thinking this is going to end up as utterly terrible as the Friday remake. Seriously, watch shit on cable and tell me what you think? Help me see it something in it that worked. Besides the underused Jason that is.

While many of you are enjoying a Christmas break I am working everyday on Elm Street. I have read all the rumors and want to make sure that you have the facts. We are doing a couple of days of reshooting Elm Street. People seem to be making a big deal about that fact. Elm Street is our 8th film and we’ve had reshoots for every film. As I have stated here many times, I try to read everything and I pay attention. The fans input has always been so valuable to me, and Elm Street is no exception. I don’t want to get specific about what we are shooting, but suffice to say we heard you. After you’ve seen the film we can discuss what was reshot. I will say this though- nothing beats seeing Jackie back as Freddy- he works so hard to perfect his portrayal and leaves nothing to chance.

Uh, Brad we love Jackie, it’s you guys vision that usually sucks. And on the Friday 2 front Fuller had this to say.

Let’s talk Friday 13th. We have busted our ass to get that movie going! The script is great- dare I say, better than the first. Shannon and Swift have outdone themselves. We are working with New Line to get that movie going. I had hoped to be able to tell you that we started prepping the movie, but that isn’t the case. We are hoping that New Line decides get us started early next year.

Actually this is delightful news, especially since the first Friday was excoriating, it could only get better from there. Wait…Halloween 2 screws that idea, so never mind.

And BloodyDisgusting shared some lovely parting shots with us. Enjoy!

‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Additional Casting?

According to Spoiler TV a casting call in going on for more shooting for the upcoming ruining of A Nightmare on Elm Street. I’m still trying to be positive but since I saw that awful trailer and read that terrible script I can’t seem to be all sunny about it. Just can’t. But, I’ll be there to see it when it comes out with a belled fedora on, probably not.

Anyway, here’s the casting info, if you’re in the area drop by you could get in the movie.

Friday 2 Remake is Coming and Fuller Speaks about Nightmare Trailer

Regardless of the fact their movies suck Platinum Dunes is insisting on continuing to abuse us all with their insipid remakes. So, expect the release of Friday the 13th Part 2 on August 13, 2010. Yes, Jason will be back, perhaps this time we will actually get to see Derek Mears. Maybe, hopefully, probably not it is them.
Now on to the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake teaser trailer. First, off like everyone else I was truly excited when I realized the trailer had been released. And was really hoping Bay and his minions pulled off a surprise, but then I watched it. It was lackluster at best, yes visually it looks better, but it’s missing the creepy, scary feeling of the original Nightmare.

Having had high hopes for Jackie Earle Haley because I think he is truly talented, I’m kind of worried now. Haley’s portrayal of pedophile in Little Children was amazing, and he was the highlight of Watchmen as well. But, something about him as Freddy isn’t working in these scenes. He wasn’t frightening or creepy like he needs to be. I think this is intentional, but I’m not sure how it’s going to work. Do we really need to feel sorry for Freddy?

Sorry, but I have to jump on the bandwagon; the voice ain’t working. Also, what was with the corny slow motion reveal of the sweater? Ok, so if we’re going that way, where’s the fedora going to come from? He’s not wearing it when he died…that’s all I’m saying.

Per B. Fuller: Is that Freddy’s final look?

No, it isn’t – we are continuing to refine Freddy’s look. Many people commented about the CGI on his face – and I don’t want to give everything away but I will say this – Freddy’s face is 98% practical make-up. Moreover, as you now know we went hardcore on what a burn victim really looks like, and I can’t imagine what the comments would have been if he DIDN’T look like a real burn victim.

Is that Freddy’s final voice?

No, Jackie spent so much time on the voice, researching what people who’ve has their vocal cords burned sound like. He is still working on it and I suspect that we will be refining it, until the last moment.

Will it be rated PG-13?

Are you kidding me? Make no mistake about it this is a R-rated movie.

Finally, many of you tell me how you have been defending me in chat rooms. I just want you know that I really appreciate that. We will never be free of haters, but if we can at least present ourselves in an intelligent way we can point out the absurdity of having a negative opinion about something that doesn’t even exist yet.
