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!

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.

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.

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

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

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.

lindsay lohan is a ***** and doesnt know how to make horror movies.

Sophia lover @ 04/12/2009 at 10:53 pm

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 @ 05/28/2009 at 1:31 pm

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.

sophia bush if she really did audition deserves the role.
