Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum looks to be the leading rumour for the role of Freddy Kreuger in Michael Bay’s remake of a Nightmare on Elm St.
A Cinema Blend source says that Michael Rosenbaum has been lunching with Michael Bay. The assumption: this could mean that he’s talking with the director about the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street remake. It’s a huge guess, but it’s one I’d be quite happy with.
If there is one think Rosenbaum has proven is that he can be evil. His character on Smallville has made a slow progression towards manipulative and heartless but still passionate about his focus. This is excellently done due solely to Michael Rosenbaum. He has proven himself quite the actor in his movie career as well.
It leaves a little sore spot to think of someone else playing Freddy Kreuger, however this is speculation so it is possible that Rosenbaum could play someone else entirely. Furthermore, Bay has more on his plate than his proposed remake of Nightmare on Elm St.
Could be any one of the 80s horror classic remakes headed this way with Bay’s foot in the door. Birds? Friday the 13th? or is it A Nightmare on Elm st?
