While we reported this last week, it was officially announced this afternoon that Kyle Gallner is moving from The Haunting in Connecticut to A Nightmare on Elm Street, New Line and Platinum Dune’s remake of the long-running horror franchise. Gallner will play Quentin, one of the lead teens in the pic, which stars Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) as the iconic scaremaster Freddy Krueger. Samuel Bayer helms the redo from Wesley Strick’s script. Gallner also stars in Fox Atomic’s forthcoming comedy thriller Jennifer’s Body, penned by Diablo Cody (Juno). Over the weekend, Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller responded to the casting over his official blog. Watch for more casting soon.
