Anton Yelchin in Talks for "Fright Night" Remake

Posted: April 6th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Anton Yelchin in Talks for "Fright Night" RemakeSubmit Comment
Anton Yelchin (Terminator Salvation, Star Trek) is in negotiations to star in "Fright Night," DreamWorks' remake of the cult 1985 vampire film. Director Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) is helming the new version.

The new iteration, written by Marti Noxon ("Mad Men"), keeps the character's name the same as in the original: Charley Brewster. DreamWorks seems to have "Fright" on a potentially similar path as the company's 2007's hit "Disturbia."

The original "Fright Night," written and directed by Tom Holland in 1985, was a horror comedy about a teenager who discovers that his neighbors are vampires. The new version will keep the comedy/horror tone while modernizing the effects.

I love how everytime there's news about this, WP puts a trailer for the original. It's like: "See! This movie existed! It's a remake! We have news!"

The original got pretty serious pretty quick and turned out to be scary as sh*t. No way in hell Dreamworks keeps the same gory tone in the remake. The original was a hard R rated flick. This has PG-13 written all over it.

Timouthy Olyphant would make a badass vampire next door. Have him play it just like that creepy drug dealer he played in Go and that would be freaky.

Ha, I was always more scared of Buddy (Charlies friend)! That part where he transformed from wolf to human after he got staked with the banister....classic! Loved this one as a kid.

When I heard of the remake I thougt "NO f*ckING WAY!!!!"

But Anton Yelchin is a good actor, so think it might work.

Good call on Olyphant.
