More Fright Night Remake Casting News

More Fright Night Remake Casting News - Imogen PootsWell today’s slow news stream is finally picking up a bit of steam as some more casting news has come in for Craig Gillespie’s upcoming remake of the Tom Holland vampire classic Fright Night.

According to Bloody Disgusting Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later) is in final talks to star as “Amy”, a popular high school senior who “needs to get nasty” by the finale, in DreamWorks’ 3D Fright Night.

The new version sticks to the original concept of a teen named Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) who is convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, though no one will believe him.

Colin Farrell has the plum role of the vampire, named Jerry, who on the surface appears to be a cool guy but is really preying on the neighborhood. Christopher Mintz-Plasse is playing Brewster’s best friend, Evil Ed, “Doctor Who”‘s David Tennant will be playing Peter Vincent, and Toni Collette is Charlie’s mom, who at first disapproves of the new arrival but changes her attitude when she meets the magnetic man and — surprise — doesn’t believe her son when he tries to tell her Jerry is a vampire.

Look for more soon!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Masked Slasher

    This is sounding worse and worse.

    The ONLY good that will hopefully come from this is a Blu-ray special edition of the original.

  • Terminal

    N…aah.

  • FireRam

    Her? Really? Blah!
    Ok,ok, my friends are on me trying to always find something positive in every situation so let’s give this a try.

    Her? Ugh, BUT, at least it’s not Megan Fox…..best I can do.

    Shiiittt…I might actually have to see this film now…

    I’m a HUGE fan of the original and I am really against the remake. It just doesn’t sound good to me, like at all. But the cast is pretty friggin’ awesome…and now with the addition of Imogen Poots (who is one of my favorite actresses) I might actually have to see this bastard!
