Billy Bob is Freddy Krueger?
The good people over at /Film are reporting that the good people over at Joblo are reporting that…
Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes is currently in the process of casting the upcoming remake of Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street. Unlike some of the other iconic horror remakes like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween and Friday the 13th, however, the villain in the Elm Street series isn’t just a man behind a mask. The casting of Freddy Krueger is a little bit more tricky. It is for this reason that they are apparently considering a well-known actor to fill the shoes of Robert Englund, and according to Englund himself, his replacement just might be Billy Bob Thornton.
At first I was thinking; you’ve got to be crazy, but then the more I looked into Billy Bob’s eyes (I have a framed photo of him on my desk instead of photos of my wife and kids) the more I relalised that yes, Billy Bob’s are have that crazy look in them that would suit Freddy down to the ground.
Bring it on I say.
