            Yeah but everyone here knows Thornton can't live up to Englund.

            Meh just wait for the prequel i'm writing it f*cking awesome, that is if you've every seen Freddy cause a massive car wreck like the one from Final Destination 2

                        Not a big fan of Freddy Krueger. Like to see it done differently from the old ones.

                          I hope they do a really good job with the script, the casting & the film. I don't see Billy Bob Thorton as Freddy Kruger, they should choose a relative unknown to play as Fred, cause I also doubt Robert Englund would wanna be Freddy ever agian. He's done it all before & they may end up choosing someone younger to re-do this film franchise as the new Freddy Kruger.

                            We'll all miss Englund, no doubt about that, but do we really want Freddy to be chasing the kids around with a walker? lolz. I'm just kidding, but he's moved on to bigger and better things..... Like "Zombie Strippers!"

                            I jest, of course, but if it's a reimagining, and a new take on things, then it seems only fit that they get someone new.

                              This could go either way.

                                I'm a little concerned about this remake, I think it won't be the same without Robert Englund, I mean, HE IS THE ONE AND ONLY FREDDY KRUGER, the friday the 13th is great by the way, but Jason uses a mask, but Fred has no mask to wear... Oh well we'll see....

                                    Englund is awesome but i gotta admit i'm hyped about this i mean how long has it been since a new Elm Street film came out. I agree a prequel is more fitting as i thought it was an unexplored area of Krueger that had so much potential for great storytelling. Remake or not i'm excited for this and i really do love the first movie not even so much for it's storytelling as it has many many flaws but just for the genius and immortal character

                                        I did it in one of my short stories once but it wasn't all of them.

                                        It was only Leatherface, Jason, Michael & Freddy in which in my novel they play as 'the 4 horsemen of the horrorpocaylpse' and if they fight long enough the Devil will rise to claim Earth and reveal a secret to change the course of mankind forever.

                                        It was this cool little mad story i wrote out of boredom. I later expanded it into a trilogy did plot outlines for 1 & 2 and never got to three lol just gave it a title
