DreamWorks has finally given us some information on the remake Fright Night and I’m not entirely sure that I’m on board with all that’s going on in it.
Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) will be directing the new and improved (?) version and it will be hitting theatres on August 19, 2011. Starring in the film will be Colin Farrell (problem number one), Toni Collette, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Imogen Poot, and David Tennant.
Here is the official synopsis:
“Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.”
Don’t forget August 19, 2011 is the release date for Fright Night, but we’re sure to get much more information on this before too long.
