First Look at the New Freddy Krueger… Sort of

MySpace has debuted the above shadowy image of Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger in the upcoming remake A Nightmare On Elm Street, which just recently wrapped production and will be heading to theaters on April 16, 2010.

The film is set to have a presence at the 2009 Comic Con where I expect the teaser trailer or some sort of early footage will be featured. The remake of the 1984 horror classic directed by Wes Craven aims to keep the high school setting and delve deeper in the psychology of nightmares and Freddy Krueger himself.
