Strick Penning New Nightmare Script


Targeted for a 2009 release

Warner Bros.’ New Line Cinema has hired veteran screenwriter Wesley Strick (Cape Fear, Wolf) to pen the relaunch of the A Nightmare on Elm Street series, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The original Nightmare was written and directed by Wes Craven and released in 1984. The new project will keep the high school setting and delve deeper in the psychology of nightmares and Freddy Krueger himself.

The trade adds that the studio hopes to have the movie ready for the 25th anniversary of the original.
