So how close will Craig Gillespie’s remake of Fright Night mirror the much beloved original film? The official plot crunch should answer those questions and more for you!
In this new telling 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 Vincent’s assistant; Imogen Poots is popular high school senior Amy; Emily Montague will play Doris, a victim of the head vamp in Vegas; and Toni Collette is on board as Charlie’s mom.
Look for Fright Night in theatres August 19th, 2011.
“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.”
