Here’s Freddy! See the first pics from A Nightmare on Elm Street!


The first images of Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger from the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street remake have debuted online. Click the images to see them in high resolution.

The remake will be directed by Samuel Bayer, and comes from Michael Bay‘s production company Platinum Dunes.

The images originally debuted at Comic Con last week, where the filmmakers also revealed some interesting tidbits about the project.

According to the footage screened at the Con, the film will begin with the legendary burning of Freddy Krueger by local parents. The filmmakers would not reveal whether or not Krueger would be both a child murderer and child molester as in the original series.

Bayer also revealed that the film would take on a darker edge, with Freddy’s trademark one-liners gone for good.

A Nightmare on Elm Street is set to hit cinemas in 2010.

Discuss: Revamped Freddy? Are we excited?
