It's all Krueger all of the time for Platinum Dunes. Producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form spent a good deal of this week taking meetings with potential directors for the upcoming A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot.

"There are some people who are just so excited to maybe getting to do this," Fuller tells ShockTillYouDrop.com. "There were some directors we were talking to who wanted to really make it hardcore, bloody and focus heavily on the pedophilia. We're just now trying to figure out who is the best fit and will give us the scariest movie."

Fuller informs us the screenplay is coming along and that there is "a foundation. We'll probably change some of the dialogue, punch up the kills and the dream sequences but for the most part the foundation is there." The producer adds they're seeking a helmer who can balance reality but carry strong fantastical elements. So, is Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th) being considered? "It's been talked about, but I don't know," says Fuller.

Shooting is expected to begin in late April and a search for the new Freddy Krueger has begun. Fuller reveals with palpable glee, "We're getting calls, for the first time in our career, from actors with real caliber who are pursuing that role"
