Everyone who saw Watchmen seems to agree that his (mostly) masked performance of Rorschach was the best. He'll make good use of the famous Freddy visage.
Shooting on the new Nightmare (not to be confused with the excellent New Nightmare) begins next month in Chicago. It's slated for a April 16, 2010 release. Michael Bay's company Platinum Dunes is producing.
To whet your whistle, here is a fan-created teaser trailer for the remake.
