    I'm a fan of Billy Bob Thornton and think he's a great actor. And after seeing this pic,


    I think he could pull it off.

    These are nothing but rumors right now but I won't be surprised at all if they ended up making a remake/reboot.

    After seeing that image, I'll give him a chance. I'm so use to Robert being Freddy Krueger with his personality and style, it'll be tough moving on to a new person.

    If they do decide to remake, they better get in the new era 'cuz those Freddy Krueger movies from the 80's are now laughable. Nothing too gory, of course, just something more frightening that'll give you a scare.

    Ehh . . he doesn't have a mean enough face. Freddy is a sadistic bastard and Thorton (at least in that photo) looks silly and fruity.

    OK, that puts an interesting spin on things. I don't know what they plan to do with this one, but at a least they have a good actor. My only thing is most horror movies lately that involve teenagers usually ends up a sucky movie in my opinion. Hopefully they will prove me wrong.

    Y'know, I always just saw Robert Englund as the sole role of Freddy Krueger, but I'm willing to give Billy Bob a shot. If they do it right, they'll make it better then those laughable Nightmare on Elm Street movies from the 80's.

    Good luck, Billy.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Don't fuck with a classic!

    I hate the fact that Hollyweird is remaking movies. Leave Freddy alone! Go pick on a crappier Horror flick that needs to be done right like...Troll, Chopping mall, or even I spit on your grave. Anything! But leave Freddy alone!

    Get some original thought Hollyweird, quit doing remakes!

    Hollywood won't EVER stop doing remakes though because remakes are guaranteed money.
