It was reported on April 3rd (2009) that Jackie Earle Haley would be taking on the role of Freddy Krueger for the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot; "set to be realeased on April 16, 2010".
Honestly I didn't know who he was, so I had to do a little research...
Nothing personal against him, but I still think that as Freddy Krueger, no one can replace Robert Englund. Nobody has that
I admit, I am a bit curious to see what they're going do..but I like the original...it's a classic and it doesn't need any fixing.
