[...] the great Clancy Brown (pictured inside) has been cast as "Allan" in New Line Cinema's reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street. He joins the previously announced Jackie Earle Haley, Kyle Gallner, Thomas Dekker, Rooney Mara, Kellan Lutz and Katie Cassidy in the film being helmed by commercial director Samuel Bayer. Brown can be seen in J.T. Petty's The Burrowers, which hit DVD just a few weeks ago, along with Starship Troopers, Pet Sematary II and Highlander. The films' premise centered on Krueger, a serial child molester murdered by angry parents, who returns with a burnt face and a razor glove to terrorize teens in their dreams. Shooting begins in Chicago next week, with a release planned for April 16, 2010.
Daily Herald meldet...
Students at two Northwest suburban high schools will have the chance be in the remake of a classic horror movie, with filming to be done on both campuses, an official said Sunday.
New Line Cinema wants to use Elk Grove High School and Hersey High School in Arlington Heights for an upcoming remake of the classic horror movie "A Nightmare on Elm Street," Elk Grove High Principal Nancy Holman confirmed Sunday. The plans were announced to students during an assembly Friday.
According to the Internet Movie Database, filming begins in Chicago on May 5, with Jackie Earle Haley as the razor-fingered Freddy Krueger. It is scheduled to be released on April 16.
Holman warned, however, that if you look for both high schools to be identified in the movie, you will be wasting your time. The producers only intend the use the locations, not the names.
She said both schools will appear in a couple of scenes.
"They contacted, I think, schools all over the nation," she said, adding that New Line was looking for a site that had a pool.
In addition to the pool, the film will show the exterior of the building, she said.
Filming will include students swimming in the pool, with students auditioning for the chance. [...]
At the assembly on Friday, he said, students were told that 200 would be needed for an outdoor scene, but no number was given for the pool scene, although only boys can try out for the pool scene. [...]
[...] New Line Cinema is in final negotiations to cast their potential new Nancy Thompson for their reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street.
[...] Rooney Mara (Urban Legends: Bloody Mary) is in final negotiations to star as the "average" teen protagonist in Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema and Platinum Dunes' remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, which begins lensing in Chicago early next month.
She will join the previously announced Jackie Earle Haley (Freddy Krueger), Kyle Gallner (Quentin) and Thomas Dekker (Jesse) in the film being helmed by music video director Samuel Bayer.
The films' premise centered on Krueger, a serial child molester murdered by angry parents, who returns with a burnt face and a razor glove to terrorize teens in their dreams. [...]
Bei STYD gibt es den letzten Stand in Sachen Remake-Besetzung...
There are still plenty of roles left to fill in the upcoming A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot. Jackie Earle Haley and Kyle Gallner are officially locked, the former playing Freddy Krueger. Tonight, ShockTillYouDrop.com has learned Thomas Dekker is in final negotiations to join the cast as "Jesse," a jock on the swim team.
The star got his start in the horror biz as young David in John Carpenter's Village of the Damned, later he landed the coveted role of John Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on Fox. [...]
Platinum Dunes is overseeing the production of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Samuel Bayer rolls cameras on the film next month in Chicago. Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing. Warner Bros./New Line will distribute on April 16, 2010.
Bei Latino Review gibt es eine Video-Review zum Drehbuch für das "A Nightmare On Elm Street"-Remake...
[...] a rumor started to circulate that Lindsay Lohan was cast in "A Nightmare On Elm Street," the new remake being mounted by Platinum Dunes [..]. As soon as the rumor hit my desk, I e-mailed Brad Fuller directly, one of the producers of the film.
While waiting on a response, JustJared.com went live with the story, and they included quotes from Andrew Form, Fuller's partner, in their piece.
Thing is, I just got word back from Fuller that the story isn't true. At all. And he goes so far as to say that Andrew Form did not comment on the story, and those quotes are not his. [...]
Im Risky Biz Blog steht zu lesen...
[...] Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes and New Line have hired a director for the reboot of "Nightmare on Elm Street," bringing on Samuel Bayer to direct the reimagining of the Wes Craven classic.
Bayer, for the uninitiated, is a sought-after director whose best-known work is in commercials and music videos; he's won best director at MTV's VMAs and is responsible for a host of iconic videos, including Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Blind Melon's video for "No Rain," featuring the famous girl in a bumblebee costume.
Endeavor reps Bayer, whom a number of film producers have long wanted to work with. The director is also signed on to "Fiasco Heights," a thriller Platinum Dunes is producing for Universal.
Platinum Dunes' Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are joining Bay in producing "Nightmare," which this year hits its 25th anniversary.
Unlike other reboots of classic horror franchises, which synthesize plotlines from several films, this one, insiders said, will feature a strong element of the first picture, in which Krueger famously began haunting teenagers' dreams, attacking them violently in their subconscious in ways that resulted in their real-life deaths.
Wesley Strick, who was previously behind such chill fests as "Cape Fear" and "Arachnophobia" was previously announced to write.
Fans have been following every move of the new Krueger closely. They'll now no doubt be YouTubing plenty of music videos for clues as to what he has in mind.
Platinum Dunes is going to continue its working relationship with Warner Bros. and New Line for A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Since Comic-Con in July, it was unknown whether producers Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form were going to be involved in the reboot of the Freddy Krueger franchise. But today, Fuller and Form confirmed to ShockTillYouDrop.com that their deal is done. "It's our next movie," confirmed Form, "hopefully shooting this spring."
Over the summer, Wesley Strick (Cape Fear) was attached to pen the script which is intended to re-imagine the dream-hopping teen killer. "It's like what we're doing to Friday the 13th," says Fuller. "It's not Freddy cracking jokes. We want to make a horrifying movie. The concept is so scary, don't fall asleep or you'll die. This guy gets you when you're most vulnerable, in your sleep. We love that. That's the basis of the movie. It'll be most similar to the first one but in terms of kills and dreams we'll borrow from the entire series."
Shooting is expected to take place in the Chicago suburbs.
Fuller adds that Warner Bros.' positive response to Friday the 13th was very helpful in getting Nightmare off the ground. Test screenings for Jason Voorhees' latest outing have reportedly gone over great.
Addressing the great, incessant question: Will Robert Englund be back? Fuller and Form say they're seeking someone new to don the hat and red 'n green sweater, but they're hopeful Englund will be back for a part in the film.
Some quick rumor control as last night Variety incorrectly reported that Wesley Strick would be directing New Line Cinema's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, which we've confirmed is untrue. Strick is currently penning the remake, which still doesn't have Platinum Dunes attached to produce. [...]
Having a good laugh about all of the rumors surrounding Warner Bros.' relaunch of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Wes Craven told a crowd at Rue Morgue's Festival of Fear today another pivotal figure in Freddy Krueger's long legacy.
"I [still] know very little about it," Craven said. "My agent and I had lunch with [former New Line head] Bob Shaye about five days ago. But as might you know New Line Cinema has been shut down by Warner Bros. who owns it and all of their properties have been subsumed by Warner Bros. Bob didn't know any more about it than I did. I certainly have no control over that property."
He also made it sound like Platinum Dunes is drifting further away from the project. "For a while there it seemed Michael Bay's company was going to do it, but I believe that's no longer the case."
Robert Englund's term as Freddy Krueger may have come to end.
Platinum Dunes and New Line rocked the horror world last week when the production entities announced they were working together to overhaul the "Nightmare on Elm Street" brand. A number of industry sources recently phoned in to shed some light on the early discussions going on behind-the-scenes regarding "Nightmare"...and none of them include Englund starring as Krueger.
The franchise facelift includes discovering a new actor to polish up the finger knives and play the iconographic dream role Englund has practically made his second skin since '84. [...]
Freddy Krueger is getting a wakeup call.
Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form have been set by New Line to relaunch the movie series centered on the iconic killer, who haunts the dreams of teenagers and kills them in their sleep.
The trio will create a new franchise based on Wes Craven’s 1984 film "A Nightmare on Elm Street."
Originally played by Robert Englund, the Krueger character haunted nine films and two TV series in what was New Line’s most lucrative franchise until "The Lord of the Rings."
Deal comes as Bay, Fuller and Form ready an early May start for "Friday the 13th," New Line’s relaunch of another iconic baddie, Jason Voorhees. Marcus Nispel will direct from a script by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift ("Freddy vs. Jason").
Both franchises will be given a complete overhaul, just as Platinum Dunes did with the Nispel-directed "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." New Line won’t hire a writer on "Nightmare" until the writers strike ends. [...]
Der TV-Sender Pro7 zeigt heute um 23.05 Uhr "Freddy Vs. Jason"...
Der TV-Sender Kabel1 zeigt heute um 0.05 Uhr "Nightmare III - Freddy Krueger lebt"...
A little over four years ago New Line Cinema's Freddy vs Jason took in an astounding $114 million in the box office worldwide. Since then they've been trying to get the sequel kicking and have even tried involving Ash and Michael Myers. Now that MTV, Paramount and New Line Cinema are teaming together for the Friday the 13th remake (hitting theaters February 13, 2009), New Line Cinema has renewed excitement about the franchise and has begun developing Freddy vs Jason 2 to continue to run with the hype. The details I have are extremely slim, but from my understanding there is still no script - and because of the WGA strike this means the big battle won't be coming anytime soon. I believe the studio is planning on moving on a sequel, which pits Freddy Krueger against Jason Voorhees, as soon as the strike ends, but nothing is set in stone. I guess you can say this news is a little premature, but the fact that New Line wants to get the sequel going is important in my book. [...]
Bei B-D gibt es neue Gerüchte von Robert Englund himself...
[...] Today at Collectormania in Glasgow, Robert Englund was talking about his time with Freddy and his time on TV show the V.
Someone in the crowd asked him if there would be any more Freddy films. He said that New Line Cinema were in talks with John Carpenter to make a movie called, you guessed it, Freddy vs Jason Vs Michael. He also revealed that Freddy vs Jason vs Ash was going to be made but it got pulled [Editor's note - the ideas for this film will be implemented in a comic book being released this fall].
Also he said that New Line Cinema are in talks with Wes Craven about making a prequel to A Nightmare On Elm Street. He said it would start with Freddy working at the school as the janitor and end with him being burnt. He made a joke saying that at least he wouldn't have to where the make up all the way throughout the movie. He revealed that there is a SCRIPT for this movie already made!! [...]
Robert Englund seems fairly confident that his wish to team alter-ego Freddy Krueger up with Michael Myers - the masked maniac of "Halloween" - is going to come true.
Englund tells MTV that John Carpenter, director of "Halloween", is in talks with New Line to work out a way to do the oft-rumoured "Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Michael".
Englund has been keen to bring Myers into the mix for a couple of years now - at one stage even suggesting "Halloween" heroine, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), be reincarnated (she was killed off in "Halloween Resurrection") for one more bout with her regular adversary, Michael, as well as the two new rogues.
I find it hard to believe the movie could co-exist with the upcoming "Halloween" remake - unless they planned on using Rob Zombie’s version of ‘Michael Myers’, which - indicated by the fact that Carpenter is the one in talks - they’re not.
Englund also tells the site that John McNaughton is still attached to direct the "Elm Street" prequel - though there’s no word on when or whether that will happen. [...]
Bei B-D gibt es ein Interview mit Robert Englund...
Elaine: What can you tell us about the rumored "Nightmare" prequel and "Freddy vs. Jason 2"?
RE: New Line is committed to making at least one more Freddy movie. They have commissioned both a prequel and "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Michael Myers". No word on which one they will actually make or when.
Elaine: What about your old TV show with Freddy?
RE: "Freddy's Nightmares" from the late '80s? It got made by Lorimar, syndicated, stripped too early in some markets and canceled. Bootleg copies of some of the episodes can be found on eBay.
Elaine: Any information about a new TV show with Freddy?
RE: New Line made "Nightmare on Elm Street: Real Nightmares" a reality show that I hosted in which contestants described their nightmares and then were challenged to confront their fears by being put in a situation that evoked their nightmares. For example: a woman scared of clowns was locked in a fun house and terrorized by clowns who appeared out of mirrors and down through the ceiling, etc. For whatever asinine reason they decided not to air it. That's all I know. Oh, it could possibly air on the new CW network.

[...] the actor hopes to be wearing Freddy’s striped shirt again by the end of next year. "New Line Cinema has commissioned two scripts: One is Freddy vs. Jason and Michael Myers, or Freddy vs. Michael Myers, I’m not quite sure how that works," Englund reveals. "The other one is a prequel; apparently it’s not that prequel script that’s been floating around for several years, it’s something new. They will select one of those two [projects]." [...]
About.com sprach mit Robert Englund, u.a. über mögliche "Freddy vs. Jason"-Fortsetzungen...
Bad news for those anxiously waiting round two of the "Freddy vs.Jason" bout - there'll be no rumbling in the near future, says Creature Corner.
New Line has iced plans for a "Freddy vs.Jason" sequel - for the meantime anyway - with whispers suggesting it may be because the studio couldn't come up with a nifty enough storyline for it.
The site was told by a scooper that the only way to put the once-presumed sequel back-on-track is to pester Toby Emmerich at New Line Cinema.
Meanwhile, Bloody Disgusting is hinting that New Line's planning something even bigger, better and badder than anything with razor-sharp nails and hockey-masked rogues. They're not saying what it could be, but hint that it's the golden goose of horror cinema.
BD zitiert Robert "Freddy" Englund...
[...] Robert told me obviously now that the Ash idea is dead (thanks Raimi- poo on you!) there are a few ideas generating, and Robert is meeting this week with some development folks over at New Line to discuss his ideas for a sequel, whether they use them or not. Robert talks fast and throws a million things out quicker than you can digest, so I'll try my best to translate what he said- but the idea may be off a little here or there:
He mentioned Michael Myers and 'Halloween'- but he wasn't hinting at anything, so don't worry. He loves the idea of a strong teenager fighting against the evil along with a strong mother i.e. Laurie Strode in 'Halloween' and Laurie Strode in 'H20.' So from what I gathered he'd like to have a pair of strong female leads - or maybe even two pairs- pit up against the two big dead dogs. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the 'Hack N' Slash' rumor floating around or if it's just Robert's wild imagination. Either way...
'Freddy vs Jason 2' is still going to happen [...]
Creature Corner meldet...
[...] The Corner dropped a line to New Line Cinema’s Toby Emmerich and asked him about the status of the Nightstalkers film as well as the status, this week’s status, of Freddy Vs. Jason 2. "There are no plans for another Freddy Vs. Jason film right now," says Emmerich who wrote the excellent 2000 time-travel thriller Frequency. [...]
IGNFF sprach mit Sam Raimi, u.a. über "FvJvA"...
IGNFF: The Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash rumors keep circulating. What are your thoughts on that project?
RAIMI: Well, I actually really like those, the Freddy movies, and Jason is a classic American horror figure now. I have a lot of respect for those series, and maybe one day they will meet up, but right now what I'd like to do is, well I'd first rather make another Evil Dead picture, and then maybe when we're done with it, if there's an interesting story that really seems like it's not just a device to make money, which I'm not saying it was. I know that they wanted to do something really cool, but I wanted to keep the option open for myself to make another Evil Dead movie without the limitations of what that story may have done. That's really, I think, what it is.
IGNFF: So you do hold complete control over the rights to the Ash character?
IGNFF: So there's no way they can make that movie without your consent?
RAIMI: Right. I think that they were hoping that it might go. We talked about it, but then the press release came out and I think I would need more control than they would be happy with and I don't want to control some other director. Sean Cunningham's a brilliant director and I actually don't want to be in a position where I'm trying to protect Ash and the Evil Dead story and he's not getting everything he wants. Even though it might have been really great, I bet what he does is gonna be great, it didn't seem like a good position for me to be in. Anyways, they've got so many great possibilities with that franchise and those two characters, I don't think they really need the Evil Dead franchise to be part of it. [...]
Bei Creature Corner gibt es Neuigkeiten zum "FvJ"-Sequel...
Bei Bloody-Disgusting gibt es eine überschwengliche Kritik zu einem "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash" Script-Treatment...
[...] Freddy vs Jason vs Ash will be one of the greatest horror movies of all time, because the script shows that it understands the characters, the history of each backstory, the cliche's and most of all- the genre. [...]
Laut Moviehole wird wohl nichts aus "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash"...
[...] According to insider ‘FestD3’ "Evil Dead" director Sam Raimi wouldn’t agree to let the character of Ash (played by Bruce Campbell) be used by New Line for the film "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash" and so it’s provisionally on the back burner while a new script is written.
Meanwhile, New Line and Robert ‘Freddy’ Englund are going to work on a new ‘Nightmare’ reality show, which should temporarily keep the hordes of Elm Street fans entertained. At the start of each episode, Englund will drop in on viewers and ask them to detail their worst nightmare. A visual effects team, led by Oscar-winning f/x artist Peter Kuran, will bring those nightmares to life via elaborate recreations. Nightmare-racked viewers will be given the chance to complete a challenge or stunt that will give them a chance to face their fears directly. "Freddy vs. Jason" director Ronny Yu was reportedly interested in directing "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash", but now that it’s not happening for a while, he has jumped aboard "Snakes on a Plane", another horror pic being set up at New Line.
Creature Corner sprach mit Ronny Yu über "FVJ2"...
[...] A script is exactly what he's currently waiting on for the Freddy vs. Jason sequel that may, and that's a big "may," introduce Bruce Campbell's Ash (of the Evil Dead series) to the melee. "That's something that the studio came up with, they asked me and all the fans wanted me to do it as well, so I said yes, show me the script! I would definitely do it. They're still working on the script, I haven't seen anything. I hope they won't work on it for 10 years."
His enthusiasm for a sequel is evident, but Yu brings up an obvious point: How long New Line will toil in the scripting process is unknown factor at the moment. [...]
There’s been a lot of rumours lately that New Line are working on using ‘Ash’ (Bruce Campbell’s character from the "Evil Dead" series for the next "Freddy vs. Jason" sequel - as well as recent news that Sam Raimi is interested in doing another "Evil Dead" film.
"Evil Dead" guru Josh Becker, who wrote ‘the book of the dead’, as well as working on three films, chewed the fat with us yesterday and discussed the rumours.
"There is no truth in the rumour", confesses Becker. "It's my belief that there will never be an Evil Dead 4. Bruce won't do it without Sam directing, and Sam has no reason to go backward and make another Evil Dead movie until his career falters, which it certainly isn't doing."
So is Becker happy about this resurgence in horror of late?. "Yes and no. Yes because I think horror films are a terrific place for young directors to start; no because most of them aren't scary and are worthless to the genre. I don't think anyone's made a legitimately scary horror film since Aliens in 1986."
Don’t give up hope yet fans - but things don’t sound as ‘full speed ahead’ as the rumour mill’s been letting on.

Fangoria berichtet über "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash"...
It’s true. FANGORIA has learned that New Line Cinema is seriously considering adding Ash (Bruce Campbell) to the inevitable FREDDY VS. JASON Round Two that the studio has in development. This is not some Internerd rumor, though the notion has been tabled out there in horror fandom for months. Sure, we’ve heard about other permutations for a follow-up to the blockbuster rumble (everything from FREDDY VS. JASON VS. LEATHERFACE to ...VS. CHUCKY to ...VS. MICHAEL), but the Ash scenario, evidently, is the only one that New Line is treating as a legitimate idea. [...]
New Line Cinema plant offenbar bereits jetzt ein Sequel
zum Kinofilm "Freddy vs. Jason": Darin sollen die beiden
sich zusammentun, um gegen "Ash" anzutreten! "Ash" wird
von Bruce Campbell dargestellt und stammt ursprünglich aus

Campbell überhaupt für diesen Part zur Verfügung steht,
noch ob die Rechtehalter der "Evil Dead"-Filme mit dieser
Idee einverstanden sind.

[...] "I think they may be testing the waters at New Line to put some fresh blood in (both franchises) and see what they can come up with. I have a hunch that New Line has one or two great FRIDAY THE 13TH scripts on the shelf. I *know* there’s one or two great NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET scripts. I know there was one done way back around Part Three, with the sister of Tina from Part One, and it was a great female woman warrior - older, like a thirty year old, coming back to avenge her sister’s death. I know there’s talk of a prequel to ELM STREET with Robert Englund or another actor playing Freddy the serial killer before... the vigilante parents torched him to death. So, that’s interesting. I’ve heard that Wes has said no to that, but somebody else might pick that up." [...]
Word this morning from one of our sources is that the test screenings for "Freddy vs. Jason" have been so advantageous, that the studio have their fingers crossed they might have a bit of a hit on their hands. And even better news? I’m told they’ve already begun discussions about doing a sequel. Although where that would go, I’m uncertain. [...]
Quint von AICN beschreibt eine 2-minütige Szene aus "FvJ", die auf der San Diego Comic-Con gezeigt wurde... SPOILER !!!
[...] Two teens, a fat one and a skinny one, are at a party... they've slipped away into a cornfield to smoke the dope and drink the Everclear, both unaware that Jason is standing right behind them. They look around, see him standing there... stand motionless and Jason quickly grabs the skinny one's head and snaps it around, twisting it backwards on his body. The fat one screams and throws the Everclear on Jason and lights him on fire. Calmly, Jason takes out his machete which catches fire as it's drawn.
The fat teen runs and Jason follows, lighting the corn on fire. There's a high shot looking down at the running teen and pursuing Jason... the trail of fire marking his route. The fat teen seems to be outrunning Jason. He bursts out of the corn, back to the party. Suddenly a flaming machete comes flying out of the corn, impaling the fat teen. It was flung so fast that the blade is still aflame, sticking out of the boy's chest.
The party goers scatter as Jason comes out of the corn, retrieves his weapon and begins hacking away. Blood sprays everywhere. It's a glorious scene. If the rest of the movie is as gory and fun as the clip they showed, then as a guy who spent 4 consecutive Halloweens dressed as Freddy, I can't wait to see the whole film!

Bei CS! gibt es einen Auszug aus einem "NY Times"-Interview mit dem Produzenten Sean S. Cunningham...
"Jason and Freddy are both in hell or something," said Sean S. Cunningham, the film's producer, who also directed and produced the first "Friday the 13th" film. "And the people around Elm Street have created an environment without Freddy. Freddy's memory is fading."
Freddy is apparently so desperate that he needs the help of another ghoul to rekindle his fearsome memory among the living. So - bingo! - Freddy enlists his new friend Jason to stir things up in the way that only he can. But monsters being generally uncooperative, tensions eventually develop in the partnership, and soon enough Freddy and Jason fight each other, machete to finger knives, in what is sure to be a horror-film Götterdämmerung. Or is it?
"If this is the last movie, it's fine," Mr. Cunningham said. "But if it makes a bunch of money, you can be sure there will be others."

[...] "Well, Ronny would like to do a whole series of Freddy vs Jason movies. He believes this is the start of a new series. If it happens, great. I think we will all be back. We had such a great time on this movie, it's going to be far from a chore to draw everyone back for seconds".
"Who knows maybe we might even see another solo Freddy movie again, if that's what the fans want".
The interviewer asked about prequel rumors.
"That's the plan yes. Ronny has sort of taking on a new surrogate father role to Freddy Krueger and Jason, so if any more solo movies come along, he's already told the studio he wants first option on directing them. I've always thought a Freddy prequel would be a wonderful idea, and now with Exorcist, the time feels right. That would be great fun, if only because I'll only be in make-up for like a quarter of the picture. Let's see how Freddy vs Jason does first thought before we get too excited. But yes, it's definitely something Ronny and I have been talking about". [...]
Franchise sequel specialist New Line Cinema has decided to go ahead with a film featuring the respective baddies from the Nightmare on Elm Street series and the Friday the 13th series, showbusiness paper Variety reports.
It will be the eighth outing for Robert Englund's Freddy Krueger and the 11th for the hockey-masked teen nemesis Jason Voorhees.
Freddy vs Jason is unlikely to trouble the Academy, but it comes as Hollywood is abuzz with talk of a Wolfgang Petersen-directed Batman vs Superman and even Alien vs Predator.
Brad Renfro has been signed to star alongside Englund, although no-one has yet been picked up to play Jason, Variety said.
Hong Kong director Ronny Yu, responsible for Bride of Chucky, will direct the picture, with filming starting in Canada on 9 September.
Renfro plays the goodie, battling to stay alive for the duration of the film as the two baddies take each other on as well as annihilating bystanders. [...]
