Robert Englund to hunt crocs for Syfy in 'Lake Placid' sequel

The Syfy network announced on Nov. 3 that horror icon Robert Englund, aka Freddy Krueger, will appear in the upcoming Syfy Saturday Original Movie Lake Placid: The Final Chapter.

 Englund follows previous Placid performers Betty White, Cloris Leachman and Colin Ferguson as Jim Bickerman, a croc poacher. Lake Placid: The Final Chapter will also co-star Elisabeth Rohm (Law and Order) and Yancy Butler (Kick-Ass). The creature feature, directed by Don Michael Paul, is currently filming in Bulgaria and will premiere on Syfy in 2012.

This news is so good we thought it deserved a nursery rhyme:

One, two, Englund's coming to the tube. 
Three, four, Syfy is giving us more. 
Five, six, this feeds our monster fix. 
Seven, eight, a Placid sequel is great. 
Nine, ten, those crocs are at it again.
