Trivia: Prior to production, there were rumors that Billy Bob Thornton would play the new Freddy Krueger. Original Freddy actor Robert Englund was very instrumental in reporting and talking about this rumor, and would publicly speak about it, even implying it was a done-deal on several occasions. This caused some minor confusion when Thornton was not cast, and it turns out that Englund was talking about it so much (especially in implying Thorton was in the film) in an attempt to pressure the studio into casting Thornton, as he felt Thornton would be the perfect actor for a modern Freddy.
