Despite ourselves, we can’t help but have a grudging respect for the Nightmare On Elm Street remake folk.
Not only have they cast our dream Freddy – Jackie Earle Haley – but they haven’t taken the obvious route with lead girl Nancy.
We were expecting a bikini bimbo for the lead role. We were expecting a Kate Mara type (see below).
Instead, they’ve gone for a Rooney Mara type (below).
Now, we’re not saying Rooney's grotesque or anything, but she’s certainly more girl next door than girl-on-the-cover-of-Sports-Illustrated. Which, frankly, wouldn't be appropriate for this franchise.
What do you think of the Elm Street cast? Will Haley make a decent Freddy? Tell us below!
