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. Posted 04.24.09 by reelz
