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!

    I agree with number 95, they need to stop making over these classics. Leave the classics alone and think of your own scripts

  • buzzed

    JOhnny depp should make a cameo .

  • Jess

    It’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, not Shakespeare…. Lindsay will be fine.

    Why not?
    THE CHARACTERS ARE ALMOST SIMILAR, folks?

  • Linnyb

    hahaha I KNEW IT!! who in their right mind would EVER cast that sleeze lezzbo reject? bahahahahha i LOVE THIS!!!!

  • Wedding Peach

    Jared:

    You broke the first rule of journalism: check facts and sources.
    Every good journalist gets pinched at least once in their career.

    Oh, I forgot. You’re a blogger. Big difference.

  • miss nick

    Ha ha, on the Impersonator!

  • Terry Brooke and Julian Fan

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

    The reason she didn’t because there is speculation that the Cw Network has renewed One Tree Hill for a 7th season.

    Hopefully Chad Michael Murray decided to resign for a 7th season.

  • Cer!se

    I agree with #95 and #101

  • Leah

    Wow Wedding Peach, that’s low. Your a real hardass :O Hah people that mock blogs when they clearly read them is like the dumbest thing ever. Your no better then the rest of us. At least Jared corrected it, and was honest about his mistake

  • Vinci

    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.

  • lakers fan in boston

    lol at jared
    u got punk’d =]

  • sara

    wow i think it’ll b pretty cool 2 see freddy kill and or torture her!! lol hopefully she’ll b a main character that dosent make it 2 the sequal!! lol

  • freakofnature

    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.

  • hmm

    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

    ^^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??????

  • CZ

    Jared got punk’d!!

    PS…..this movie doesn’t sound so “good”…….just saying.

  • What?

    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?

  • http://www.socialvibe.com hwooddood

    haha dang it Jared I was telling everyone yesterday about this when I went and saw Friday the 13th!! :) Oh well….LL would have ruined it anyway.

  • g

    lindsay used to be good when she was younger
    i dont think that she’s gay its probably an act to get the photographers to take a picture of her

  • AMz

    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.

  • Julie in NC

    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

    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!!

  • ^^^^

    ^^^^You’re weird.

  • http://JustJared Kathy P

    PEOPLE!!!!!!!! Lindsay is NOT going to be in the movie. That is the point of the article. So please quit talking about how good she will be

  • Whatever

    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

    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 skank 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!!

  • Spongey

    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.

  • jUANMAX

    I WANT HER ON THE MOVIE!!! SHE WILL DO IT GREAT!!!!

  • JDTN

    I heard that Jessica Lowndes from 90210 was gonna be in this, she a great actress.

  • JDTN

    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

    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.

  • ameer khaafid

    This role was made for lohan. I think she would of diffently make people see. Lohan is a great actress just look at i know who killed me.She the new scream queen of are time.
