Grab Your Crucifix! We Have Some New Fright Night 2 Casting News!Some casting news for the direct to video sequel(?) Fright Night 2 has come our way, and it continues to both befuddle and intrigue us as to just what the hell this project actually is. We’ll find out soon as filming is now under way in Bucharest, Romania.

Inbred‘s Chris Waller has landed the lead role of “Evil” Ed Bates in Fox Home Entertainment’s Fright Night 2. Christopher Mintz-Plasse played “Ed” in the remake and the character was already killed off. Why he’s back is anyone’s guess. Will Payne will play the lead role of Charlie, which was played by Anton Yelchin in the 2011 version. Sean Power is playing Peter Vincent and they will all star alongside “Dexter”’s Jaime Murray, Sacha Parkinson, John-Christian Bateman, Liana Margineanu, Alina Minzu, Adi Hostiuc and Joelle Coutinho.

Eduardo Rodriguez directs.

When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with his horror-obsessed friend “Evil” Ed and ex-girlfriend Amy in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing, and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show “Fright Night,” to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, who’s blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.

Sound just a little familiar?

    Ugh, for fuck’s sake. Looks like they want to give this series the shitty Lost Boys sequel treatment. Great.

  • Terminal

    Just a fucking remake of the remake?! Fuck that.

      Maybe it’ll be an improvement over the original remake that I’m sure you didn’t like.

      Speaking of useless remakes of already great movies. Still waiting for your Pulitzer Prize winning essay on Les Weisman’s “visionary” redo of TOTAL RECALL.

    wow they took away almost all of the original cast; I can garuntee this sequel is gonna be bunk. It’s really sad when movie companies can’t contract out to the same actors.
