Latino review just posted this pretty intricate video review of the working script for Platinum Dunes "Nightmare on Elm St.". It's not exactly spoiler heavy, but it does outline the characters, Freddy's back story, and the main impetus of the plot. There was a revalation in the last 1:00 or so that I'm not totally jazzed about knowing early, so consider yourself warned.
The script sounds pretty interesting, except for all of the vomit inducing pop culture references they seem to have crammed in. Example, we first meet the main "teens" while they're playing Guitar Hero. Yikes.
I still don't think you can adquately remake "Nightmare" due to the iconic nature of Robert Englund's Freddy, but I vowed before "Friday the 13th" came out to at least give them a chance before they come out. So, consider me excited?
