Updated! One, two... Freddy's thankfully not coming for Lindsay Lohan!

Update: Drew posted a story at Hitfix with word from Brad Fuller that claims the JustJared story is false and the quotes attributed to Andrew Form are completely fake. If that's the case, then it's good news for the film, but is pretty much damning JustJared as lying liars. If JustJared did make up those quotes... they might be in for some interesting conversations with lawyers. I don't have any connection with either Form or Fuller, but if I hear from them I'll make sure to update this story again with their comments. PS JustJared has changed their page now, claiming they got punked. Whoops... So, call that one bullet dodged... Original story below:

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. So, yeah, Lindsay Lohan will be our new Nancy in Platinum Dunes' remake of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, per producer Andrew Form to JustJared.com. Now I'm not automatically on the Lindsay Lohan hate-wagon. I actually like her as an actress and think she can pull off good performances when she's... clear-headed. I genuinely like her turns in MEAN GIRLS and A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION. The problem is she's either not right for this role or her casting has tipped Platinum Dunes' hand in regards to their approach to this picture. What I loved about Heather Langenkamp in the original was she was pretty, of course, but she was also a regular girl. You could have grown up with Nancy on your block or shared a class at school with her. So there's immediate empathy with her character. She's your "in" to the world and she keeps you grounded during the more fantastic elements. If Lohan is right for the part, then that aspect is lost in this movie. I don't think that's a movie-killer... what's crucial here is Freddy and how well they can pull off the nightmare sequences. But this casting is worrisome to say the least. If Nancy does have the girl next door aspect to her as written then Lohan is horribly miscast. I'd rather believe Fuller, Form and Bay are going for the first one, wanting a hot young girl and not a realistically pretty one. And that's their job. They're producers and it makes some kind of sense from that point of view, but they surely didn't cast her for her talent for the role, more her recognizability. Like I said, that's their job and I don't begrudge them that. But it's also my job to call out stunt casting when I see it. All this is coming from a big, big NIGHTMARE series fan and one who doesn't have a hate-boner for Lindsay Lohan. I just think she's wrong for the part and is an indication that this movie isn't going to make me or the fans very happy.

    by zom-bot.com

    when, besides mean girls- has lindsay given a good believable performance? she's too recognizable as lindsay the bi curious druggie skank now. it will take alot of cleaning up and buckling down for her to be anything else than the stereotype she has cursed upon herself. i don't have a hate boner, but i don't have a boner either, i'd live contently in a world without a lohan movie ever again. this is bad news. the focus will be lindasy, and not freddy, or even like you said, a believable, realistic, sympathetic heroin..oops, i mean heroine

    I agree erichaislar

    by gavdiggity

    but Robert Englund really made it hard to imagine anyone else playing that part. Although the last few Nightmare movies were pretty weak, and by the end Freddy became a pardoy of himself. That first one does look dated, but it's still got some great creepy scenes in it (the green trailer of slime from the bodybag being dragged down the hall always creeped me out) <P> I think the real question is, will Dokken be doing any music for this series of movies?

    Big Stars in a superluous remake? Why not?

    by Hikaru Ichijo

    Seriously, it's just little girls going out to see this anyway. And it's "Nightmare," how do we pretend they're bringing anything new to the mix? They can't. If anything, casting a name like Lohan indicates that they have a certain amount of respect for the material, at least in terms of budget.

    pulls a Scream instead

    by Bouncy X

    they should just have her play the Tina role, so she dies early and do like the Scream openings. but the producer said she's the main girl? well damn. although if its a direct remake, seeing her in the tub scene should be fun.

  • Feb. 13, 2009, 3:28 p.m. CST

    That's part of the problem..

    by SpikeTBB

    ..they had with the zombie Halloween remake. Jamie Lee Curtis made Laurie Strode very real and like someone you could know, be friends with. Just like Heather did in the Nightmare flicks, to a lesser degree. (I think Curtis is a far better actress) We see how badly it all went off the rails in the Halloween remake. Laurie was very unappealing to a lot of people and the strength of the film suffered for it. Now if Nancy ends up being someone who could easily fit in on "The Hills" a lot of the audience will be yelling for Freddy to finish her off, I am guessing. Come to think of it I'd like to see Freddy, Jason, Leatherface and Micheal make their way through "The Hills" and the "O.C.". and a few other shows. Maybe I'm on to something here

    She was/is good

    by Larry of Arabia

    Remember when every female actress in Hollywood was raving about her talent and sticking up for her? I seem to recall Fonda, Streep, Fay, Curtis, and Tomlin talking about her talent. Robert Altman had faith in her, and he's not exactly a slouch when it comes to judging talent. It just bothers me that she can be good, real good, and now she's stuck in a lame horror remake.

    by IndustryKiller!

    Shes merely competent AT THE VERY BEST. Her talent (i.e. middling) doesnt even come close to justifying her behavior and lack of dedication. The only reason anyone thinks she was ever going to be this great talent is because the media made a myth out of her. She was never going to be some great actress we all couldnt wait to watch, even before all the drama.

    Compton was a better Laurie Strode than Curtis

    by Cannabis Holocaust

    Curtis' Laurie along with most characters in Carpenter's Halloween were nothing but cold wooden stereotypes. Why should I give a fuck if they live or die when they don't even remotely resemble real people? Compton's Strode and the girls in Zombie's film however actually seemed plausible. Full of life, modern, multi-faceted. Characters that actually remind you of your friends, girlfriends, acquaintances, etc.

    Um... I get what you're saying, but if you'd maybe actually read the article you'd see that it wasn't some site claiming some unknown source was giving them information, it was a site QUOTING the producer of the movie. That's why I was saying they might be in legal trouble if they made up the quotes. You know, because that's illegal. Linking to their site is not the same thing. As far as I know, it's not illegal to discuss people doing illegal things.<BR><BR>JustJared got scammed. Some guy posing as Form wanted to see if they'd post bullshit. Happens to everybody who runs news, from print to internet. I'm not making excuses for posting the news... I posted it because it was a site directly quoting the producer, which usually means it's real (that whole legal thing I mentioned). I posted the debunking as soon as I found out about it.

Don't silence me for a respectable gripe. I'm not against you Q-dog. (Damn if only the TB's had an edit button. I hate wearing egg on my face all the time)

    I didn't delete any of your posts... uh... dog? I'm not good at the Randy Jackson... But yeah, I'm completely with you. I was always upset when they didn't let Ug fully transform into Freddy. Can you imagine how amazing it would have been if he turned into Freddy and the second half of the movie was Robert Englund as Freddy tearing up some Critter ass?

    Too bad...

    What the hell is she good for if it's not waving her tits around in a Nightmare on Elm Street remake? I'd rather her show up in crap like this, than something that requires a competant actress.

    Summer Glau would make a good Nancy

    by Spifftacular Squirrel Girl

    I also like the idea of Serkis as Freddy. Or Billy Drago if only he's probably the creepiest actor working today.

    I don't know or care if this is true

    by Series7

    But its perfect casting the original Nancy was annoying as shit balls, I think Lohan can nail that with out even trying.

    director choice and the entire production company...

    by WhinyNegativeBitch

    ...Tipped their choice on their take on the material. I.E. shallow, lazy, yet nicely photographed rehash aimed at tweens.

    I know you boys at AICN are well connected. You have it within your grasp to validate any bit of NEWS you want from the source before reporting it. Since Harry prides himself on not reporting waste-of-time Batman 3 casting rumors (for good reason) there is obviously a qualitative rift on how far some of the AICN staff are willing to go to CHECK THE SOURCE before reporting stuff (have you seen Shattered Glass?). If a stranger offered you candy to get into their car would you do it since afterall they SAID they have candy? Im not saying you're newsweek or Time. But with your success I feel justjared should be riffing off your news. Not the other way around. And lastly I dont think its illegal to invent quotes from people. In fact its not.

    I fully expect a copy of that movie to arrive on my doorstep immediately upon completion in reward for all the times I've shared my cinematic knowledge on Quint talkbacks over the last ten years.<p>

    Not Right For the Role?

    by The Funketeer

    This is a Freddy movie. If she's got boobs and can stand up straight she's right for the role.

    It's All Good

    by ThePilgrim

    I was pretty drunk last night. What I thought happened, didn't. I tried to post a Please Platinum Dunes No reprisal of Nightmare 1 characters- Cause, well we saw that story already and I don't think we need them back you can have a Nancy like character. It would be nice to not really know ahead of time that she is the main character. Sorta like Clay and his sister Whiteny in the remake. If that film came out post-internet We wouldn't know right away that Clay would be the main character. He slowly became the main character. In regards to the post. I'm willing to bet that I messed it up on my end somehow. When I saw it absent later on I thought it was deleted and I got pissy. Sorry about that Quint. Yeah, God only knows what kind hella fun Critters 2 could have been if Ug went full Krueger and Pressed the Start Button On The "Whoop Ass" Machine.

    THEY SHOULD CAST...

    by 420 Boylston St

    that hot babe with nice set of cans in the new Friday The 13th movie! She would be a perfect Nancy. Geez I would love to get a glance at her boobs again before she pulls a Nadia from American Pie and never show them again.

    Oh geez, it's just Nightmare on Elm Street

    by Organs

    I don't mean to dis the franchise or anything, but the Freddy Krueger movies are hardly anything more than popcorn eatin' good times at best. It's not like Lohan's being cast in a role that really matters. <br> That said, I'm willing to give Lindsay an inch and see if she can get her career back together with dignity.

    Well Done Quint

    by onemanarmy

    It'd be next to impossible for anyone to be sympathetic towards Lohan playing Nancy. It'll ruin the whole "dude I hope she makes it through this shit" factor. Unless of course, Joe Moviegoer was only 7 when Mean Girls came out & is completely oblivious to Lohans' paparazzi plagued failure of a decent life. On another note, I do have a "hate-boner" for all of the iconic horror film remakes. As much as I'd love to say "they had better not fuck this up" we all know that they will. Nonetheless, nice write up Q man.

    Running out of remakes

    by Spazwankle

    Are there actually anymore iconic/recognisable 70's/80's horror films left to remake? We must be down to a handful now. Does this mean we're going to have to see a return to original material within the next year or so?
