Some more new blood is checking into Craig Gillespie’s remake of the Tom Holland vampire classic Fright Night, and we wouldn’t mind biting her ourselves!
“Melrose Place” beauty Emily Montague (pictured right) has joined the cast of Fright Night 3D to play Doris, a victim of the head vamp in Vegas. Montague joins the previously announced Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Toni Collette, David Tennant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Imogen Poots, and Dave Franco.
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, Sandra Vergara will play the Vincent’s assistant, Imogen Poots is popular high school senior Amy, 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 Fright Night in theatres on October 7th, 2011.
