Kellan Lutz has a new movie coming up.
Like lambs to the slaughter, "Twilight" actor Kellan Lutz, "Terminator" TV show star Thomas Dekker and Rooney Mara have joined the cast of New Line's re-imagined "A Nightmare on Elm Street," being directed by Samuel Bayer and produced by Platinum Dunes.
Lutz, who is in negotiations, would play a popular school jock.
Dekker is an alpha male trying to get back together with his girlfriend. Mara plays a girl who can't wait to leave town after graduation.
Those young dreams will prove to be dust as the duo join Kyle Gallner, in the role played by Johnny Depp in the 1984 pic, as fodder for slasher Freddy Krueger, being played by Jackie Early Haley.
"Nightmare" is slated to begin shooting May 5 in Chicago.
Meanwhile, Rob is starring in another Summit production.
Pattinson is starring in Remember Me which is shooting this summer in New York while the actor is between Twilight sequels New Moon, which wraps at the end of May, and Eclipse, which starts in August.
Allen Coulter, the award-winning TV director (The Sopranos, Damages) who made his feature debut with Hollywoodland in 2006, is directing the film and Nick Osborne and Trevor Engelson of Underground Films (License To Wed) are producing.
Summit co-chairman and CEO Patrick Wachsberger wouldn’t go into too much detail on the plot but described the film as this generation’s Love Story. A female lead is in the process of being cast, while Rachel Getting Married writer Jenny Lumet has finished the latest draft of the screenplay.
