The new Jason Voorhees is coming this Friday in Friday the 13th, and a new Freddy Krueger is not far behind.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, A Nightmare on Elm Street is being remade by first-time director Samuel Baye, who has given us music videos like "No Rain" from Blind Melon and the classic "Smells Like Teen Spirit" from Nirvana.

The script reportedly draws heavily from the original film and not the sequels.

Casting for the clawed Freddy, who invades the dreams of his victims, is underway. Though there may be a guest spot for Robert Englund, he will definitely not be playing the serial killer in the reboot.
