And the first bit of possible casting news for the remake of Fright Night has hit the Net, and we have to say it’s not too shabby. Has DreamWorks found this generation’s Charley Brewster? Read on for more!
According to the THR Heat Vision Blog, Anton Yelchin (Chekov in last year’s Star Trek movie and Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation) is in negotiations for the part of Brewster, who is keeping his same name from the original 1985 version of the film. As we reported previously, Lars and the Real Girl‘s Craig Gillespie has officially signed on to take the directorial reins and will be shooting from a script by Marti Noxon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”). Michael De Luca and Alison Rosenzweig are producing.
Per Heat Vision the remake sticks to the concept of a teen being convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, although no one will believe him.
