Elm Street & “Friday the 13th” Updates

Millions have seen the new trailer for the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” remake either online or in front of “Zombieland” this weekend. Now producer Brad Fuller has answered some of the questions and complaints that have popped up online via the Platinum Dunes Blog.

Most notably he says neither Freddy’s look or voice is yet finalised. In terms of the visual, Fuller says “We are continuing to refine Freddy’s look… Freddy’s face is 98% practical make-up… we went hardcore on what a burn victim really looks like.” Star Jackie Earle Haley spent a lot of time researching what people who’ve had their vocal cords burned sound like and “is still working on it and I suspect that we will be refining it, until the last moment”. He also says that the new ‘Nightmare’ will definitely be an R-rated movie.

Meanwhile Bloody Disgusting says that Warner Bros. Pictures has announced an August 13th 2010 release for “Friday the 13th Part 2”, a sequel to the Platinum Dunes produced remake from this past February. Funnily enough though its the second film in the rebooted franchise, it will be the 13th overall film starring Jason Voorhees.
