I'm starting to get worried that 85% of the new Nightmare news is going to be focusing on Kellan Lutz because he is in the Twilight films. I will do my best to not turn this Blog into a Lutz Blog, but due to the lack of news today, here is a brief and uninteresting interview he did with MTV.com. I just like how he keeps avoiding calling the original Elm Street films "horror."
We have complicated tastes here at the MTV Movies Blog. While it’s easy to find a horror website devoted to all things Freddy Krueger, or a Twilighter site breathlessly counting down the days to “New Moon,” you might not see that chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination crossing paths very often in a single place.
That is just one of the reasons why we’re so excited to report on the upcoming “Nightmare on Elm Street” reboot. Because we looooove Freddy, and we also looooove Kellan Lutz. And like any good parent, we could never pick one over the other.
“I’m shooting ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ right now,” Kellan told us recently. “Which, for me, is one of the scariest thriller-type movies I grew up watching.”
