He is partially right, though. Friday the 13th Part 2 and Dream Warriors are the only two sequels to the "big three" worth a damn.

There is no one who knows the hatred and distain of horror fans better than I do. I also have learned a great deal from the comments I read, especially here at BD. The fans here are very insightful and passionate and I find it very helpful to read the feedback.

It should come as no surprise then that Jackie Earle Haley is playing Freddy Krueger. He was the only person we ever considered for the role. He was BD's first choice and there were many times during the negotiation that I came here and just looked at the fans casting ideas and realized that he was ONLY person who could play the role. We can't make all the fans happy, but those of you who are open to a new version of the Nightmare story have to be as excited as we are. Come on people, an Academy Award Nominated actor is playing Krueger. This was no small accomplishment, but everyone involved wanted it to happen. We all know that Jackie is an unbollievable actor, but I want to let you in on something you might not know. Sam, Drew and I had drinks with Jackie and were elated to learn that he is just like us. He is a huge fan of horror, and well aware of the rightful place Freddy Krueger holds in the horror pantheon. Quite simply, he knows what he has to do, and is very up to the task.

On Monday we start the process of "creating" Freddy's makeup. Jackie is going in to have his contact lenses fit as well as a head cast created so we can create the make up to fit perfectly on his face. Normally I don't go to these fittings, but I am so excited about this film, I don't want to miss anything. I won't be able to take pictures but I will post later in the week to tell you how it went.

Just a few lines about Sam Bayer. He is so thrilled about taking all the years of experience he has in making breathtaking images and turning it into a horrifying film. He is uncompromising and a perfectionist. I am loving working with him because he cares so much, that I feel like we are all in good, safe hands.

Now that we have our Freddy I am very focused on casting the rest of the movie. Our first actor cast, Kyle Gallner starred in A Haunting In Connecticut. We didn't have the luxury of seeing the film before we cast him, but his audition was so impressive that everyone at the studio and Bay signed off on him the same day he auditioned. It was one of the few times that someone got the role in the room. He has set a very high bar for the remaining actors. I hope to have more casting news very soon.

There are lots of rumors floating around, but the best place to get the real skinny is on this blog or the BD homepage, so keep coming back, because I intend to post frequently.

I love that they all seem to have much enthusiasm for this.

Interesting about the make up . I wonder how Freddy's look will differ from the original movies.

Hopefully it's something new. I also hope a lot of detail goes into it like they did in the first film.

They wouldn't do the films otherwise. Producers usually are the ones to make films happen, so it would make sense that they push to make something they don't really care about.

*shugs about fan trailer*

True, still I would have liked to hear that they at least watched it, and saw the type of stuff most fans want.

Its good they say Jackie is a fan, and thinks his up to it.

Can't say I care to much. I'm sure they have their own ideas in mind by now.

Yeah, they would. I wish they couldtell us some of them, and then they could get some kind of feed back. This movie is really important!!!!

I think their aim is to surprise us. Though I'm sure they've considered some of our ideas.

Yeah, well at least they have been reading them (or so he says). Also said they liked some of them (again, I'm unsure weather its the truth).

I'm just hoping for the best and being positive!

You have too much doubt. I think Platinum Dunes is getting better at what they do (and no, it's not fuck up good movies). They're pretty much breathing new life into aged and dated characters.
