CONFIRMED: Thomas Dekker Joins ‘Elm Street’ Kids

Bloody-Disgusting has confirmed that an offer was officially made to Dekker to play “Jesse”. Thomas Dekker’s (video inside) venture into the horror world is getting to his head as he’ll be confronting the dream demon in New Line Cinema’s A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, as sources tell Shocktillyoudrop that he’s now in final negotiations to star. No official confirmation just yet, but we’re working on it. He will star alongside the previously announced Jackie Earle Haley (Freddy Krueger) and Kyle Gallner (Quentin). Besides playing John Connor in Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, he’s also starred in From Within, Laid to Rest and recently wrapped production on All About Evil. Shooting is slated to begin on the new Nightmare film next month with plans to release it in theaters April 16, 2010.
