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

JOhnny depp should make a cameo .

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

Why not?
THE CHARACTERS ARE ALMOST SIMILAR, folks?

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

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.

Ha ha, on the Impersonator!

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.

I agree with #95 and #101

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

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.

^^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??????

Jared got punk’d!!

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

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?

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.

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

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.

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.

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
