The Elm Street remake though, I just don't think it's a good idea. While I am curious to see Billy Bob Thornton in the role (if he really is going to be playing Freddy), there's simply no replacing Robert Englund. He IS Freddy Krueger. Voorhees you can replace since he never says anything really (though people have still managed to fuck the role up in the past), but Freddy Krueger? Those are some mighty big burnt shoes to fill.
Hopefully, if we're really lucky, he'll crush the naysayers like Daniel Craig or Heath Ledger did, but this one IS unlikely. Billy Bob is a total nutjob, so he could work.
And I'd like to know who screwed up jason. The only one I can think of off the top of my head was Ken Kerzinger, who was hired because of his eyes. But hey, Freddy vs. Jason had a good 40-some-odd minutes of the two duking out, which worked for me.
