Despite all the Hollywood fanboys clamoring to get their reel seen by Platinum Dunes, Michael Bay's horrific production company has announced their actual choice to helm the Nightmare on Elm Street remake:
Samuel Bayer.Wanna buy a watch?
Never heard of him? That's because he's never made a movie. But, he has made some music videos, among them Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
This is the fourth classic horror remake for Platinum Dunes. Their The Hills Have Eyes
remake was tons of gory fun, their take on Texas Chainsaw Massacre
was needless and derivative, and their Friday the 13th
remake is poised to chop its way through theater lines this weekend.Just take the damn photo, fanboy.
What are your thoughts? And what are your picks for the new Freddy? Leave comments below.
