    Billy Bob Thornton will star as Freddy Krueger in a new Nightmare On Elm Street movie.

    The 53-year-old actor will take on the chilling role in a remake of the 1984 original.

    Robert Englund, who played the part in eight films, revealed that Thornton will star in the horror films and is an "excellent choice" for the role.

    He adds, "A big budget should mean the film will look a lot better than some of the old movies."

    I can see that.

    But I don't think it'll be a good remake.

    Billy Bob Thorton? Maybe, but no way could he ever be as good as Englund! But then again, I was surprised by how well Ledger out did Nicholson in portrayal of The Joker, so we'll just have to wait this one out.
