Lindsay Lohan Not Joining 'A Nightmare On Elm Street'

Lindsay Lohan Not Joining 'A Nightmare On Elm Street'

Lindsay Lohan has been cast as the lead female role in the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street, the film’s producer Andrew Form confirms exclusively to JustJared.com.

“We were lucky to receive a call from Jason Weinberg, Lindsay‘s manager,” Andrew tells JustJared.com. “He called us to tell us that Lindsay was very interested in the film and wanted to be a part of it. We called Jason back after Wesley Strick finished the script and asked if Lindsay wanted to look at the first draft. She looked it over and loved it. She thought this was the perfect vehicle for her.”

Andrew and Bradley Fuller, who produced the remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th, will be with producing the Nightmare remake. Also on board is Michael Bay, who directed both Transformers films.

Michael, Bradley and I couldn’t imagine having a better actress for the part and without an audition we cast her,” Andrew adds.

It was announced yesterday that famed music video director Samuel Bayer will be directing the horror flick.

Tidbits: One Tree Hill‘s Sophia Bush auditioned for the role, as well as Danielle Panabaker, who stars in Friday the 13th…in theaters today, Friday the 13th!

UPDATE 1: Laaaaaaame! Someone apparently punk’d me and is trying to ruin my reputation. Rude. This business is shady! Yes, Lindsay‘s rep has confirmed she will not be starring in A Nightmare on Elm Street. Deepest apologies. Lesson learned. But if this role is up for grabs, they should cast Lindsay!

UPDATE 2: That was helpful. I just got off the phone with the real Andrew Form! A casting director has not been hired yet for this project but I will now be kept in the loop when real casting news hits. Thank you for making this happen, Mister Impersonator!

    You guys are idiots. Lindsay is a good actress, you can’t deny that but knowing alll the stupid **** that she does people see past her acting & see that yeah, she’s a trainwreckkk but don’t say she can’t act. I love her and I only focus on her acting, I don’t care if she’s coked up or whatever. She is a talented actress. I love Nightmare on Elm Street. I used to watch alll of the movies. I hope Lindsay puts her alll in this film.

    I’m really shocked anyone would attach a person with her history to any projects!
    I’ve seen her in a thriller, it was called I Know Who Killed Me and it was HORRIBLE.
    I’m sure this remake will make money.. because they all do, but come on.
    Least she’ll get some money and Sam can’t stop supporting her.

    CORRECTION Says:

    Sophia DID try out.. shes a terrible starving actress that needs all the publicity she can get. TRUTH she wasnt casted because A. she cant act her way out of a speeding ticket. Hence why she was kicked of Terminator 3. B. she didnt look the part. I work in LA and know these are the facts.. just to clear things up for you little One Tree Hill fans.

    Of course this role is perfect for her, because it’s another lazy hollywould remake. Crappy actress for crappy producers, writers and directors who can’t come up with their own material.

    mslewis Says:

    Lindsay is(was?) a good actress but I don’t think “Nightmare” is the proper vehicle to showcase her acting talent. Of course, it’s probably the only script she has seen in a long time so natually she took the role. I think the most important thing she can do is get to the set ON TIME everyday, SOBER and ready to work. She cannot mess this up with her antics. If she does it will be the end of her movie career. For real!! So, please Lindsay, I’m rooting for you. Don’t mess this up!!

    Mel Says:

    #33,
    You are a f*ckin idiot. F*cked up people like you amuse me to no end. I love how you think Sophia is chunky when the truth is that she far from it. Theres a reason she’s always making lists based on her beauty alone. So get over yourself. I’m pretty sure your ugly as helll and feel the desperate need to bash others to make yourself feel better about yourself.

    And #38,
    Sophia DID NOT try out for the part. She was interested but decided not to audition due to reasons I’m not going to bother discussing with morons like you. And this isn’t the first time Just Jared has there “facts” wrong…..I’ve seen it happen all the time on this site.
    And she’s FAR from a “starving actress”, not only is she on OTH, but she also has two movies out for release some time this year……so crawl out from whatever rock you’re living under and get your information straight.
    Also Sophia was NEVER kicked off of Terminator 3…….they really liked her and casted her. But then then very early on before they started shooting, they realized they wanted someone who looked much older for the part Sophia was casted for because Sophia looked entirely too young. If she was so “bad” then the director would’ve never praised Sophia in one of his interviews while saying that he would like to her work with her in the future. So take my advice, and SHUTUP before you make yourself look even more dumb by talking about sh*t you don’t know anything about.

    Stick to the topic at hand-LINDSEY LOHAN and “A NIGTHMARE ON ELM STREET”.
    Enough Said.

    alina Says:

    1.Come on, give her a chance! Did you all critics forget that she’s young and began as a kid? You have to break out simeday and get your lessons, like every normal teenager as well!

    2. When a movie turns out to be bad, most of the guilt is on the director! The director is leading the actors, he hast to animate them and to guide them through the roles. Every award-winnor is thanking the director first. Look at very popular astors like for example Nicole Kidman – she sucks badly sometimes and is amazing in other movies. It depends on the director. Not only of course, I wouldn’t say that… but a good director needs to have the ability to get the best out if the actor. And that Lindsay Lohan ist talented, we have seen in her big movies like Parent Trap.
    If you are talented, you just are, it’s not going away.

    #57 I agreed with your second part. Story and director is what counts most. Also, I can understand why they make remakes. Many reasonsto say.I’m kind of curious of the story of this remake. Until then, waiting for the trailer before saying it’s going to suck.

    Beth Says:

    TO MEL: YOU ARE THE FU*KIN IDIOT. What are you ugly sophias PR? The ***** is chunky. she has big, white grandma arms and a serious case of cankles. Hate to break it to ya.. but not really makin the beauty lists lately.. and has never made it to top 10. NEVER. My body is sooo much nicer then that fugly girl.. Im sure 95 percent of these girls who post **** on here are because her unflattering figure aint tough to beat. HOW DO YOU KNOW SHE DIDNT TRY OUT? she did and she didnt make the cut. plain and simple.. as for the terminator 3 thing. Are you really THAT dim whitted. See.. when they go to cast actresses in movies.. they think of things like “does she look too young” BEFORE they start filming.. not two months into the project. They cut her because she cant act for ****, so they hired Claire Danes who actually looks YOUNGER than fugly soph. The Director didnt “praise” her.. he only said those things because of business standards. No director has EVER gone off on an actor theyve booted off. NOT PROFESSIONAL. You are a sad, pathetic little individual. Im sorry you are so diluted.

    Beth, you’re insane. Sophia is healthy. She doesn’t have any rolls or fat on her. Btw, those hot lists are a joke!
    I think that Lindsay is still kinda attractive (I think when she was 17-20 she was very pretty) and she’s a good actress, but no one takes her seriously. I think this is a bad role for her to take at this point.

    Mel Says:

    Beth,
    No YOU are the f*ckin idiot you retarded ass b*tch. Your post just proved what an incredibly jealous hag you are or else you wouldn’t have said what you did. Does bashing people make you feel better about yourself???
    I’m a woman, and I’ll admit straight up that Sophia is beautiful and sexy. But I’m not the only one…..my friends, my brothers, and there friends all thinks shes hott too. So take that “grandma” sh*t and shove it up your ass.
    Unlike half of the women in Hollywood these days, Sophia has a gorgeous, curvy body, and I for one am glad. Because some of those anorexic looking chicks give nothing but little girls the wrong impression.
    And yeah b*tch, Sophia DOES make beauty lists and made numerous lists just last year alone. And its only February of a brand new year, so I’m pretty sure she’ll be making plenty more this year too. It sounds like you have some sort of personal vendetta against her….what happened?? Did she call you ugly or something??
    AND I HAPPEN TO KNOW THAT SHE DIDN’T TRY OUT FOR THIS FILM. I don’t have to tell you how I know because out of respect for her and others involved, I don’t want to say anything. BUT SHE DID NOT AUDITION FOR ANY ROLE IN THAT MOVIE.
    And I had a feeling that some moron like you would say something like that about Terminator 3…..yes its true that before they cast a person for a movie, they look at everything. But sometimes, even after checking everything out and casting someone, right before the shooting starts and even after it starts, they end up changing things around, even the actors, because they see that a new direction might end up being better in the long run. And you made yourself look like an even bigger ass by saying that they think things through BEFORE they hire someone. Why you may ask?? Well b*tch, its because like you said, they do check everything out before they hire someone…..INCLUDING whether the person knows how to act or not. For Terminator 3, they didn’t just look at her and were like “Oh, your hired.” Sophia had to audition and everything and then they hired her AFTER they saw that she did indeed have acting chops. But like I said before, sometimes things change and they decide to go in another direction even after things are set and done. It wasn’t because Sophia didn’t know how to act, got it b*tch???
    And you can take that “business standard” thing and shove that up your ass too. Directors don’t have to say or do anything. The director did praise her, he didn’t even have to say anything at all, but he did.
    So the only sad, pathetic little individual I see here is YOU because you’re a JEALOUS f*ckin hag who is too damn diluted because she’s blinded by hate for someone who doesn’t give two sh*ts about her.

My guess is you’re a grip and probably work on “low budgets” or “straight to dvd’s”. If you know anything about marketing you would know EVERY demographic needs to be pleased. So their have to be curvier girls put in projects.. for men who like T & A. Not to be so blatant, but that how it works.

    I just don’t like it when people bash others for no apparent reason or when they say stuff that just isn’t true. So you can either deal with it or amuse yourself. I could really f*ckin care less. Personally, I think YOU’RE the loser……you’re probably Beth herself……..now thats FUNNY.

    The Sophia Bush is absolutely false, she did not audion, she was thinking about but decided not too.

    I bet it was Mario/Perez or one of his peeps who punked you. His site’s looking dull these days and his book tanked, and he’s probably looking to blame someone else aside from himself for the drama.

    2 ways to ruin a perfectlly good classic

    #1 Cast Lindsay Whorehan….in ANY movie.

    #2 Make another garbage laden remake. Hollywood is obviously running out of ideas.

    get the facts straight.. BUT to be honest.. would have liked to see blowhan in this.. agree with #104.. shes not a golden glober.. but could for sure handle a cheezy horror flick.. and to the Sophia Bush comments.. I just think ITS SAAAAAAD if she didnt try out.., ONE TREE HILL is her biggest mistake ever! that show is as cool as AIDS.. because shes on that terrible show, shes not famous, kinda perceived as a looser She wouldnt try out for a badass horror movie because of that LAME ASS wb show? now thats just pathetic.. would have been less pathetic if she tried out and got beat by Lindsay. FACT.

    Tasha Says:

    ^^Are you crazy?? True that I hate One Tree Hill too, and have hated it since season 3 ended, but Sophia definitely isn’t perceived as a loser for being on that stupid show. At least she’s doing something. But I’m glad that she’s gotten acknowledgment from other movies she’s done like John Tucker Must Die, because in all honestly, besides the fans who watch the show, no one cares about OTH and its not going to exactly get her any attention like the cast of Gossip Girl does.

    But as for this movie, why is Hollywood so helll bent on making remakes?? Just leave it alone, because remakes usually don’t do that well. Are they running out of good story ideas??????

    What? Says:

    Isn’t more than half the stuff printed on gossip blogs bullshit anyway? Secondhand information that’s passed down or something you got from another tabloid source? How much good is your reputation really when all you’re doing is recycling stuff or printing what someone’s PR flunkies tell you to?

    i dont think that she’s gay its probably an act to get the photographers to take a picture of her

    I agree with #115! there are so many famous actresses less deserving than Sophia.. but she wont get herself out there. Advice to Sophia: LEAVE ONE TREE HILL.. you idiot.

    I don’t usually comment on these things because they usually aren’t anything like worth my time, and I don’t particularly care which vapid starlet(s) they get to play the victims in this latest Hollywood ripoff, I mean remake. I am a huge fan of this series, and I have to tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt – the ONLY thing, and I mean *ONLY* thing that will save this movie or make it worth a toot in a high breeze, is if they can manage to get Robert Englund back under that makeup again. End of Story, over and out.

    rhonda Says:

    I think if they want to do a classic they should add to it instead of remake it. Definately don’t cast either Lo or So!! They both are so grade school and self absorbed!! Please don’t have some stupid overated reality show to cast any members either….so not wanted! If they can’t get a cast as good or better than the previous then don’t bother! With all the technology we have today you’d think they could come up with something great. Just don’t screw it up like the new Halloween and Friday The 13th movies and any other movie. Wes Craven is the best when it comes to scary… All you So and Lo fans need to sit on the crapper and take a load off!!! Now that’s funny!!

    The movie was a lousy piece of crap to begin with. Why is a remake needed. There are plenty of screen writers that could come up with something new. Hollywood is full of idiots.

    rhonda Says:

    Who’s wierd? If you have nothing insightful to say then don’t say anything at all! This remake was a falsehood to begin with. Now it is in the making. Am I so wrong to ask not to try to re-make one of the best movies ever and just contribute to the series? Join with Wes Craven and make one of the best horror flicks ever since the Elm St. movies or the Exorcist movies. Make a movie that will get ppl. sick in the theater just like those movies did. They didn’t have the technology that we have today and yet those moveis surpass alot of the so called scary movies we see. I see kids and adults that are more frightend by those movies than the so called scary movies we have today. They think todays scary movies funny and the the scayr movies from the 80′s to the late 90′s scare the crap out of them. These new writers and directors have alot to learn from the OG’s of horror flicks! They redid Steven Kings” The Shlining’ and although it was okay it will never ckome close to being as good as the original! If you are not a movie buff then I suggest you not even try to blog about something you do not know about!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not weird I just know what I am talking about! WES CRAVEN SHOULD BE THE ONLY ONE TO KEEP ELM STREET ALIVE!!!..Oh and Freddy can never be dead because he is in dreams and thrives on the believers!! Educate yourself before you speak your mind…Freddy’s dead was the sixth out of seven movies!! The seventh was “A New Nightmare”. Fredddy cannot be killled unless noone believes in him! Not to mention that Wes Craven is so awesome that ppl would be crashing down his door just to star in one of his movies, he wouldn’t cast a ***** to be in the movie let a lone a lead character. Oh and BTW Johnny Depps’ character died in the first movie and Freddy was an only child and his daughter didn’t have any children. A remake would be total disaster! Adding to it without Wes Craven would be Armagedden!! You can’t have Elm St. without Craven!!! Just please do not cast non-acting-morons!! Don’t choose the stars just because you think they will generate an audience!! Choose ppl that will that will add extra to the movie and it better outshine the previous seven Elm St. movies! I still think you Lo and So fans need to find a hobbie and stop obsessing over fingerpaintings by pre-schoolers!!

    Lindsay really can’t act, she pretty much plays the same character in every film. She’s hopeless, no wonder she hasn’t done a movie in two years.

    friday the 13th had a pretty descent cast but was too much like the texas chainsaw movies, i liked that jason actually runs in this movie! I hope that nightmare on elm street takes an approach more like the halloween remake.

    Sophia lover Says:

    Sophia would be amazing in this. Look at what she did in the Hitcher and in Stay Alive. She’s great in horror movies. To bad that she didn’t try out for the role. Although I did hear she was being casted for “Scream 4″ but she turned it down, because of “One Tree Hill”. If not Sophia, I think Danielle Panabaker would be awesome in this movie.

    Lindsey, not so much. She cannot act. The other two on the other hand, would be great.
