Zev wrote a great review of the remake:

Hey guys,
I actually found a copy [of the Nightmare on Elm Street remake script] .. IT SUCKED!

It’s full of horrible now-days references (characters clinging to the internet, profile websites, using ipods, webcams, a freaking kid who is obsessed with guitar hero, etc.)
It’s a movie for the stupid kiddy emo-generation, that wastes the whole movie asking “was freddy innocent or guilty?” and in this one, he’s still called “The Springwood Slasher” though, he never killed a single kid when he was alive. He is a janitor at an elementary school that Nancy and her friends all attended, and he apparently molested them all, which they’ve all somehow forgotten.
the -Tina- and -Rod- characters are the same, but they’re emo now, and -Rod- after witnessing -Tina’s- death, suddenly is full of information and knowledge about what happened, and even warns Nancy “if you dream, you die.” but then of course falls asleep himself.
It’s really a waste of time, but here’s a copy if you want to read it. If anything I feel sorry for Jackie E H as Robert Englunds replacement as Freddy, even if he did a good job, the horrible script is going to bring him down. Have you seen his pictures yet? The glove and hat are WAY huge on him, it reminds me of seeing a tiny kid play Freddy for halloween, wearing oversized clothes lol.
