TONI COLLETTE AND COLIN FARRELL JOIN "FRIGHT NIGHT" REMAKE

Now this is an interesting casting. According to "Heat Vision" Colin Farrell and Toni Collette will star in DreamWorks' remake of the 1985 comedy horror "Fright Night". Young Anton Yelchin has already signed on to star in this film directed by Craig Gillespie, which will tell the story of a teenager (Anton Yelchin) who is convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, though no one will believe him.
Collin Farrell will portray the dashing vampire preying on the neighborhood while ultra talented Toni Collette will appear as Yelchin's mom, who at first disapproves of the new arrival but changes her attitude when she meets the magnetic man and, what a surprise, doesn't believe her son when he tries to tell her Jerry is a vampire.

  1. ug, how old is the original Fright Night? Less than twenty years old I believe, and we're already getting a remake!

    And we all wonder why the quality of movies has been on the decline over the last 10-20 years.

  2. Is it just me or does this sound a bit like Rear Window remake Disturbia meets vampires? I haven't seen the original, and I'm sure they're quite different, but just the basic synopsis sounds the same. Interesante.

  3. The original was 1985 and good, campy fun. No reason to remake it!

  4. I don't remember if I ever saw the original, but due to the vampire love right now, this movie will probably do well.

    well haven't you noticed that Hollywood is trying to remake ALL of the 80's movies????

    @Univarn
    the world "original" doesn't exist in Hollywood.

    @Alex
    Toni is the reason enough :PP

    @Kelly
    I haven't seen the original either, so I'm looking forward to seeing this one.

  6. @Alex - the sequel wasn't half bad either.

  7. Wow! Fright Night was and still is one of my 80's faves. I always hoped Chris Sarandon (the vampire in the original) would go on to better things but that didn't happen.

  14. Jump on the vampire band-wagon! Difference is the vampire - Colin Farrell - thank you for not casting a teenager! Toni Collette - big fan - is always a pleasure to watch. Has such diversity in roles and genres. And I can certainly see Colin as a 'magnetic' character - he has that intensity about him. Will watch ;)

  15. I must admit, Vicks, I'm not a fan of vampire movies, but I adore Toni so much, I just have to see this one when it comes out. I'd love to see her in commercial movies as well.
