We’ve learned exclusively this afternoon that Kyle Gallner (The Haunting In Connecticut) is in final talks to play Quentin, the podcast host and Johnny Depp character in New Line Cinema’s Platinum Dunes produced reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street. He’ll be joining Jackie Earle Haley, who we announced a few hours ago will be playing Freddy Krueger. Watch for loads more casting in the coming weeks as shooting begins at the end of this month. Being directed by Samuel Bayer, the films’ premise centered on Krueger, a serial child killer murdered by angry parents, who returns with a burnt face and a razor glove to terrorize teens in their dreams.
