"We ARE doing the movie," producer Brad Fuller told the site. "We just closed the studio deal and we want to be filming by summer 2009. The script is being worked on now. We just came onto it so we are still figuring out what to do with the story."
Wesley Strick is writing the screenplay about the deranged Freddy Krueger, who haunts the dreams of young children and kills them in their sleep.
