[Rumor] ‘Crawl’ Director Alexandre Aja to Reboot ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’



[Rumor] 'Crawl' Director Alexandre Aja to Reboot 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'

Nothing is set in stone at this time, but we just learned via a report from the good folks over at We Got This Covered that Crawl director Alexandre Aja is among the list of names being considered to reboot A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Aja directed the 2003 horror gem High Tension, along with the fantastic 2006 remake of the legendary Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes.

Samuel Bayer‘s 2010 remake, which starred Jackie Earle Haley as The Springwood Slasher, features the following synopsis:

Teenagers Nancy, Quentin, Kris, Jesse and Dean are all neighborhood friends who begin having the same dream of a horribly disfigured man who wears a tattered sweater and a glove made of knives. The man, Freddy Krueger (Jackie Earle Haley), terrorizes them in their dreams, and the only escape is to wake up. But when one of their number dies violently, the friends realize that what happens in the dream world is real, and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake.

We will continue to keep our eyes peeled for more details on a possible reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street. In the meantime, you can let us know your thoughts on Aja’s possible involvement in the comments section below.
