Not that believing Internet rumors is good...but IMDB and now Fangoria are reporting that Billy Bob Thorton is going to play Freddy in the the new Nightmare on Elm Street re make.
Being that I derive my tittle "cuts happening" from the nightmare films...I am flabbergasted. Do they need to remake it? No. Does Michael Bay need to give it up? Yes. Has Billy Bob made a good film other than Sling Blade? No.
Granted...he's got a good Robert Englund-esque look for the role...but SO DOES ROBERT ENGLUND. And last I checked Robert is still making good horror films (up soon in Jack Ketchum's Red and Jack brooks Monster Slayer).
THIS GUY IS A CLOWN!
