Well 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!
