Kevin Bacon Open To Play Freddy Krueger In Reboot

It starts with a tweet, then a retweet, and then you have a movement. Kevin Bacon put gasoline on the rumor mill Saturday when he expressed interest in the role of Freddy Krueger via Twitter.

There have been nine films involving Freddy Krueger, with eight films by Robert Englund, and the bad 2010 remake starring Jackie Earle Haley.

According to Bloody Disgusting, back in August of last year, it was reported that New Line was rebooting the Elm Street franchise once more, with David Leslie Johnson (Orphan, The Conjuring 2) attached to pen the screenplay, but there has been no update on the project since then.
