Well we’re in April and the offcial count down has begun for the new Nightmare on Elm Street remake. I’m looking forward to it if for no other reason than for the new Freddy himself, Jackie Earle Haley. Haley’s been having a huge career boost lately starting with his portrayal of Rorschach in the Watchmen movie (2009). Since then he’s appeared in the 2010 film Shutter Island and has a great role in the Fox TV show Human Target. I really believe that if anyone can add a new demented and intense dimension to the role of Freddy Krueger (who has, let’s face it, become the laughing stock of the slasher world), its Haley.
And here is the 1st closeup still of Haley as Krueger. What do you think??
