"It's not Freddy cracking jokes. We want to make a horrifying movie. The concept is so scary, don't fall asleep or you'll die. This guy gets you when you're most vulnerable, in your sleep. We love that. That's the basis of the movie. It'll be most similar to the first one but in terms of kills and dreams we'll borrow from the entire series" says Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes.
While Robert Englund will be back for a role, he won't be starring as the nightmarish character, someone new will be taking his place.
Production will start this spring in Chicago.
