"Elm Street" Gets Repaved

Oh no. First Jason, now Freddy returns. Apparently WB/New Line has hired Wesley Strick ("Cape Fear," "Doom") to write the latest adaptation of Freddy Krueger. The proposed project is said to be a straight up remake that will keep the high school setting and dive deeper in to the "psychology" of the Freddy character.

Another bad slasher franchise revitalized by a writer best left for Sci-Fi Original Motion Picture flicks? Pass. Freddy sucked then, I can't see him doing anything better now.

For those interested, the film is in its very early stages. I wouldn't expect this thing until 2010 at the very, very earliest.
