Talk about a return to my troubled childhood. Still short on creativity, New Line Cinema has decided to team with Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form's Platinum Dunes to relaunch A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Dreaming Up A Nightmare on Elm Street

New Line will team with the trio to create a new franchise based on Wes Craven's original 1984 film A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Originally played by Robert Englund, the Krueger character haunted nine films and two TV series. While one might wonder why New Line feels the need to return to the franchise, Elm Street and Krueger just happen to be the studio's strongest franchise up until the release of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings.

New Line and Bay are sticking close to remaking the horror genre, as they will also be working together on Friday the 13th, which is already scheduled for a May start.

Though their isn't a writer just yet for Elm Street -- compliments to the writers strike -- the franchise is expected to receive a complete overhaul.
