News: Freddy Almost Ready

BloodyDisgusting is reporting today that the casting of Freddy Kruger in the Platnium Dunes remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street is in final talks and the man more or less definitely taking on the role is Jackie Earle Haley, seen most recently in Zack Snyder's Watchmen as the gravelly-voiced Rorschach.

Haley's a fine actor, so an interesting choice for a horror remake. It's pretty cool on his part if he is taking the role, and I think he'll do a good job as Freddy...but will the film provide material worthy of such a good actor? We'll have to wait and see, but I'm certainly not holding my breath yet.
