The new Freddy Krueger iiiisss....

the dude who played Rorschach in Watchmen.

Okay, I know this was already broken by the fine folks at bloody-disgusting a week ago. People generally seem satisfied with the selection and I'm inclined to agree with them. I was genuinely worried they'd turn Freddy into some kinda hulking wrestler-type.

Anyway, Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller posted an entry in his blog commenting on the casting. I kinda pity the guy. Horror fans are notorious for getting weird around the subject of remakes and I can only imagine the verbal shitstorm he gets from crackpots about every decision they make. I liked the TCM and Friday the 13th remake, flaws and all. I trust they're gonna do a decent job with this one.
