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

“We were lucky to receive a call from Jason Weinberg, Lindsay‘s manager,” Andrew tells “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!

    Why her??
    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.

    They really should’ve gone with Sophia. She’ll at least show up for work, on-time and sober.

    you ******* idiots.. IMDB does not post all the roles that ****** actresses like sofia bush didnt get. She sucks, and has a chunky body.. she could HAVE never done a role like this.. she s on the WB for christ sake.. You people are *****in RETARDED. Lindsey seems like she could def handle a role like this.. I will def go see it.. wouldnt say the same id=f they were actually stupid enough to cast Sophia Bush

    And she said she wanted to be taken serious?

    She’d ruin it? Hardly. It’ll already be ruined.

    #33, Sophia is not chunky. Just because she doesn’t look like a god damn walking stick, doesn’t make her chunky. Btw, she’s not on the WB. You seem to be the only ****** here!!!

    She is a nightmare!! I hope that someday she gets some help!

    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.

    Is nothing sacred? Nice publicity stunt, but Form and Fuller are just living up to their pervy repuations

    cheesecake Says:

    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!!

    UGH! I hate that they’re remaking this at all! Why ruin it with Lindsay! I decided along time ago that I wasn’t going to watch it, now I really don’t want to watch it, cause this is just going to ruin the whole thing! The fact that they won’t hire Robert as Freddy again makes no sense at all.

    Lindsey will RUIN that re make she is a ****** actress as is. Scary movies do not need her help especially with a classic like Nightmare on Elm Street
