EXCL: Who’s Creating the New Freddy Krueger?


Cloverfield vet joins the production

While the verdict is still out on who is donning the infamous sweater, hat and glove of Freddy Krueger in the upcoming A Nightmare on Elm Street, ShockTillYouDrop.com has learned who is designing his ghastly, burned visage.

Say hello to Andrew Clement (pictured). He’s been awarded makeup FX duties on the Samuel Bayer-directed redo which is being produced by Platinum Dunes. Clement served on the animatronics team behind Cloverfield and was the makeup artist on J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek and Spider-Man 3. Later this year we’ll see what creations he whipped up for the organ harvesting thriller Repossession Mambo, starring Jude Law.

Check out some of Clement’s stuff at Creative Character Engineering.

A Nightmare on Elm Street begins rolling sometime next month from a script by Wesley Strick.
