After a Year, "Nightmare on Elm Street" Finds a Director 


So, one year ago today, we reported that Michael Bay was set to revamp the "Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise.

There was even a rumor of who was going to play the iconic Freddy Krueger.

Now, Bay has picked a director, and it's going to be Samuel Bayer. Just who is he?

Well, he's a sought-after music video and commercial director. He even won best director at MTV's Video Music Awards.

Some of the most famous music videos he's directed are Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Blind Melon's "No Rain" -- you know, the one with a dancing girl in a bumblebee outfit?

So this is exciting, albeit hokey-ish...first, they revamped Michael Myers in "Halloween," then it's Jason Voorhees for the upcoming "Friday the 13th," now, it's the most iconic serial killer of them all, Freddy Krueger!

Hollywood is raping my childhood!

But who are we kidding here? I'll be counting down 1, 2 Freddy's coming for you...
