JoBlo has landed the first set photos from Platinum Dunes’ upcoming reboot of “A Nightmare on Elm Street”. Now before you look at the photo to the right or any of the other photos JoBlo posted and freak the fuck out–take a deep breath. This is a flashback scene. That’s why he doesn’t have his blades or his scarred face. It’s either that or they’re taking this film in direction that will piss off just about everyone. I really hope it’s the later. Still, you can see the iconic shirt and hat but it’s a little tricky to see Haley’s face (I’m gonna be really embarassed if that’s a body double, stunt guy, or younger version meant for the flashback). In any case, it’s very cool to see this film rolling and hopefully it will be as successful as “Friday the 13th” was earlier this year.
