Now anyone that knows me…happens to know, that out of any horror “reinvention” I have been the most upset about the news that Michael Bay was giving a Nightmare On Elm Street the “Halloween” treatment.
Well two pieces of news this morning and now I am thinking it has potential to be awesome.
First off, is that Wes Craven will be writing…which was a huge factor in whether i would even watch the movie. Which hey that was pretty good news.
But what it really came down to was Freddy. It was announced early on that the iconic Robert Englund would be offered the role but that he would most likely refuse (which he did).
So who in the hell could play Freddy Krueger? My favorite horror character of all time.
I just could not imagine anyone else, and was pretty frustrated.
Especially knowing that Michael Bay would probably cast some unknown idiot.
Well this morning via [albotas.com] they have learned that BILLY BOB THORNTON will play Freddy Krueger
And I can totally see it happening. He could easily have the swagger that Freddy has. And I have to say, i actually would be a little curious to see what he would look like in the makeup
So i have to admit…i peed a little bit…just a little
