First Look: Jackie Earle Haley as the New Freddy Krueger
Well, okay, this is hardly a real first look, but alas, it's the only photo we got. MySpace has debuted the first official photo of Jackie Earle Haley as the new Freddy Krueger from Samuel Bayer's A Nightmare on Elm Street. Earlier today we gave you a hint what you can eventually expect in our set visit report coming early next year. Now you can get a glimpse at what Freddy will look like - and it's pretty much the same as we've seen before. For those of you who are a bit let down by this photo, don't worry, there will be another photo debuted on IGN today (that we'll add to this) that might show a bit more. Check the photo out below!
This new A Nightmare on Elm Street is being directed by first-time filmmaker Samuel Bayer who got his start directing commercials. The screenplay was co-written by Eric Heisserer and Wesley Strick. In addition to Earle Haley, this stars Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, and Clancy Brown. I'm sure we'll be hearing/seeing a lot more from this soon, so stay tuned. And if you're still upset at this photo, just take what Steve from Collider has to say. "After all, Freddy comes to you in dreams, so what better way to start than by letting you imagine what the rest of his face looks like." Thoughts?
