Platinum Dunes Responds to ‘Nightmare’ Casting in New Blog

Heading into the weekend we broke the news that New Line Cinema have added both Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) and Kyle Gallner (The Haunting In Connecticut) to the cast of A Nightmare on Elm Street. This evening Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller updated his official blog responding directly to the fans regarding the casting choices. As you all now know, Haley is set to be your brand new Freddy Krueger, replacing the infamous Robert Englund as the child killer from Springwood. Gallner will play Quentin, the “Johnny Depp” character (who is also a podcast host) that’s pairing up with Nancy to solve the mystery of the razor-glove wearing dream demon. Click here to read Fuller’s post and don’t forget that he does in fact read your comments, so go and be constructive.
