Jackie Earle Haley has gone from Little Children to teen tormentor.
The Oscar-nominated actor will don Freddy Krueger's signature striped sweater in the upcoming revamp of A Nightmare on Elm Street, New Line's attempt to scream new life into the 25-year-old slasher-flick franchise.
Cameras are expected to start rolling May 5 in Chicago, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which first learned that Haley would be fitted for Robert Englund's razor glove.
