Kyle Gallner moves to ‘Elm Street’

'Haunting' actor set for new 'Nightmare'

The new Freddy Krueger has his first male victim to terrorize.

Kyle Gallner is moving from “The Haunting in Connecticut” to “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” New Line and Platinum Dune’s reboot of the long-running horror franchise.

Gallner will play Quentin, one of the lead teens in the pic, which stars Jackie Earle Haley (“Watchmen”) as iconic scaremaster Freddy Krueger. Samuel Bayer helms the redo from Wesley Strick’s script.

Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing; John Rickard co-produces.

Gallner stars in the upcoming indie comedy “Cherry,” as well as Fox Atomic’s comedy thriller “Jennifer’s Body,” penned by Diablo Cody (“Juno”).

He previously played the Flash in the CW’s “Smallville” and had recurring roles on FX’s “The Shield” and the CW’s “Veronica Mars.”
