C'mon, Hollywood remake factory

Is this really the best you can do? Sad to think they're recasting Johnny Depp's breakthrough role:

That said, I like that the extremely talented Jackie Earle Haley keeps getting hired. Clearly, Michael Bay and company cast him in Nightmare based on his work in Watchmen as a misanthropic crime fighter and in Little Children as a grown man who, like Freddy Krueger, just can't seem to leave the kids alone. Except that Children's Ronnie is a human being you can feel compassion for, while Freddy is a demented hell-monster who slays teens in their dreams.
