Today, Freddy Krueger got himself two more teens to torment: Twilight's Kellan Lutz and Rooney Mara who, according to Bloody-Disgusting, will be playing the new Nightmare on Elm Street's protagonist Nancy Thompson.
Because he's currently in Vancouver shooting Twilight sequel New Moon, Lutz isn't scheduled to join the project until later in the shoot, but will reportedly play a popular jock until he's adequately sliced up by Freddy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mara, who stars in Youth in Revolt with Michael Cera later this year, will play "a girl who can't wait to leave town after graduation." BD clarifies that a bit, claiming she'll "star as the 'average' teen protagonist" Nancy.
