“Get ready for a chilling journey into the origins of terror with Fred – a gripping 10-episode event on MAX streaming service this October. Starring DJ Qualls as the titular character himself. Witness the transformation of Fred Krueger from evil man into nightmare slasher in this Wes Craven Studios Production. Directed by Rob Zombie in his television series debut, brace yourself for an unforgettable descent into darkness.”
So reads the promotional poster circulating online …
It seems that there’s more to this announcement than meets the eye … a series might not be quite there yet reports The Direct.
However Gamepressure reports that it’s all a hoax and comes from a satire site … “Both the poster and the description and the whole idea of the TV series is false. No one is working on a TV show about Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street series, and we certainly won’t see one in 2024. The poster and description are the work of an online creator, YODA BBY ABY, who runs a satirical Facebook profile and posts fake news there, which he makes clear in his presentation.”
So it seems this is all a very compelling hoax … BUT obviously with the amount of interest it’s generated … maybe a production company WILL pick up the idea and DJ Qualls will get to play the man with the burnt face and the hat (and the knife glove) …
