Nightmare On Elm Street Getting Rebooted Again



Five years ago saw the less than well received Nightmare On Elm Street remake from producer Michael Bay, which starred Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger.

Now it's learned New Line Cinema is rebooting Nightmare on Elm Street yet again.

Tracking Board reports plot details are slim, but the reboot is said to start over with a fresh new take on Freddy Krueger, and that the studio wants to go back to the drawing board to create a remake worthy of the 1984 Wes Craven original.

It's said that David Leslie Johnson, known for The Walking Dead, Conjuring 2 and Wrath of the Titans, is writing the script. Johnson was also recently announced to be writing the new Dungeons & Dragons movie for Warner Bros.

The original Nightmare On Elm Street starred Robert Englund, which spawned multiple sequels and even a short-lived TV series.
