Sam Bayer Helms “Elm Street” Reboot

Legendary music video director Samuel Bayer is tipped to be helming the upcoming remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” for Platinum Dunes says Reuters.

Unlike other franchise reboots which incorporate various elements from the sequels, this one will be more of a direct remake of the first picture.

Bayer’s credits include Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, The Cranberries’ “Zombie”, Garbage’s “Stupid Girl”, Green Day’s “American Idiot” and Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around…/…Comes Around”. Bayer makes his directorial debut on “Fiasco Heights” which Platinum Dunes is also producing.
