Even though the release of Craig Gillespie’s remake of Fright Night is still pretty far down the road, that hasn’t stifled the potential sequel talk as the first rumblings have begun.
According to a “source” over at Cinema Blend (take that for what it’s worth), DreamWorks is considering turning the franchise over to Peter Vincent (David Tennant) for Fright Night 2. The follow-up would take place in a new city where Vincent not only has to deal with vampires, but potentially other unexpected problems. Evil Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) will be in it but wouldn’t be the movie’s villain – they’d go another direction.
We’ll just file this one away in the rumor mill for now. One thing is certain though … it couldn’t possibly be worse than the original sequel to the original Fright Night. Or could it? Wow. Now my head kind of hurts. Sigh.
Fright Night 3D has been rated R for “bloody horror violence and language including some sexual references.” Look for Fright Night in theatres on 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.
