Just last week, Platinum Dunes and New Line announced that they were working on a new installment in the Nightmare on Elm Street horror franchise. Though few details are known, the original Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) will not be in the film.
Shock Till You Drop is reporting through various insider sources that the actor will not be apart of the new relaunch. The site reports that rumors are surfacing that Michael Bay is looking to begin anew, as in hitting the reset button on the franchise. Because of that decision, they’ll likely be finding a new actor to portray Freddy.
