The Daily Herald reports that A Nightmare on Elm Street will be shooting at two schools in Chicago.
"New Line Cinema wants to use Elk Grove High School and Hersey High School in Arlington Heights for an upcoming remake of the classic horror movie 'A Nightmare on Elm Street,' Elk Grove High Principal Nancy Holman confirmed Sunday. The plans were announced to students during an assembly Friday."
The schools will be used for a few exterior shots and a scene involving students swimming in the school's swimming pool. Students of both schools have been asked to audition as extras.
Sorry for the crappy picture it is all I could find for Hersey High School. You can see Elk Grove High School here.
A Nightmare on Elm Street begins shooting on May 5th with a planned April 16, 2010 release date.
