Nightmare on Elm Street Sets Release Date


A change for Final Destination, too

Warner Bros. and New Line have marked an April 16, 2010 release date for A Nightmare on Elm Street. The redo, if you’ve ignored all news about this until now, is directed by music video helmer Samuel Bayer and is based on a script by Wesley Strick. Yesterday we revealed FX artist Andrew Clement signed up to create the new Freddy Krueger, although it’s unknown at the time of this writing who is playing the killer.

Also on the WB/New Line slate is Final Destination: Death Trip 3D, the fourth entry in the series. The studio is moving this one up a week from August 21st of this year to August 14th. That gives the film a little breathing room before Rob Zombie’s H2 (aka Halloween 2) opens on August 28th.
