Regardless of how much money Jason’s return scares up this weekend, Freddie Krueger will be making a big-screen comeback of his own.
And even if you haven’t heard of Samuel Bayer, chances are you’ve seen — or heard — his work.
Bayer is renowned for directing music videos (Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Blind Melon’s “No Rain,” et al.) and commercials, but the new Nightmare will mark his feature-film directorial debut, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Now the search is reportedly on for a new dream-haunting Freddie, since Robert Englund, who played the original villain, is out.
