Nightmare producer: What's up with Freddy's burn scars, voice

If you watched the new teaser trailer for A Nightmare on Elm Street (after the jump) and your first reaction was "WTF? Freddy's makeup looks weird! His voice sounds weird!", you're not alone, and our pal Brad Fuller, producer of Platinum Dunes' upcoming remake, wants you to know that he hears you and has posted details about the movie on a new production blog.

Here's part of what Fuller said:

Is that Freddy's final look?

No, it isn't—we are continuing to refine Freddy's look. Many people commented about the CGI on his face—and I don't want to give everything away but I will say this—Freddy's face is 98% practical make-up. Moreover, as you now know we went hardcore on what a burn victim really looks like, and I can't imagine what the comments would have been if he DIDN'T look like a real burn victim.

Is that Freddy's final voice?

No, Jackie spent so much time on the voice, researching what people who've has their vocal cords burned sound like. He is still working on it, and I suspect that we will be refining it, until the last moment.

Will it be rated PG-13?

Are you kidding me? Make no mistake about it this is a R-rated movie.

You can watch the trailer below. A Nightmare on Elm Street, starring Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy, opens April 30, 2010.
