Let this be the day of terrible rumors – and hopefully by days end we’ll have put this one to rest. JoBlo is reporting that Robert Englund was on Loveline last night promoting his upcoming film, JACK BROOKS: MONSTER SLAYER, and during his appearance he claimed that he had heard that Oscar-winning actor Billy Bob Thornton was a name being thrown around to play Freddy Krueger in the remake of A NIGHTMARE ONE ELMS STREET. Englund has been known to “invent” stories that he thinks would be cool. With New Line Cinema hiring Wesley Strick to write the screenplay just a few weeks ago, it seems highly unlikely that any casting talk is underway. File this one under “ridiculous rumor” until further noted.
