Next year, Jackie Earle Haley will take over the role of Freddy Krueger from actor Robert Englund.
To gain some momentum for the reboot, a new feature-length documentary, “Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy Documentary,” is being put together.
Here is the description of the film from the official web site (http://www.elmstreetlegacy.com): In this thrilling 90-minute DVD retrospective, fans will find everything they’ve ever dreamed of as they enter the world of A Nightmare On Elm Street: exploring what spurred mastermind Wes Craven to craft the first groundbreaking film; delving deep behind the scenes of the original & all of its sequels; learning how the cast & crew brought their worst nightmares to life on screen; and, finally, understanding the impact the series and its mythos has had on the genre. Featuring interviews with over 75 cast and crew members spanning every film, and loaded with film clips, photographs, storyboards, conceptual art, publicity materials and archival documents, this will be the definitive account of the making of what many have called the best, most frightening and imaginative horror franchise in motion picture history.
Below is the teaser trailer for the documentary, and if the girl in the clip looks familiar, that’s because she is Heather Langenkamp, who played Nancy Thompson in three of the “Nightmare on Elm Street” movies.
