Twilight's Kellan Lutz Rumored for Elm Street Remake
04.24.09 by REELZ
Kellan Lutz, now most famous for his role as Emmett Cullen in The Twilight Saga movies, is rumored to be joining the cast of 2010's A Nightmare on Elm Street -- a modern remake of the popular '80s horror flick.
Lutz is no stranger to the horror genre, as he appeared in 2008's low-budget slash-fest Prom Night, which was -- surprise, surprise -- another '80s retelling gone bad. He's scheduled to play a "popular high school jock," which sounds similar to his recent part in the revamped version of 90210. He pulled that off quite convincingly, so it shouldn't be too much of a challenge for him.
Also rumored to be joining him are Thomas Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Kyle Gallner (The Haunting in Connecticut, Veronica Mars). Do we really need another horror movie remake? It's the same formula every time: hot, young cast + modern setting = box-office failure. Still, maybe this one will fare better. After all, no one can pull a crowd like a Twilight actor can.
