She’s got experience with vampires…
Producers Michael De Luca, Michael Gaeta and Alison Rosenzweig set up the Fright Night project in May. DreamWorks executive Mark Sourian is overseeing for the studio, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The original 1985 film, written and directed by Tom Holland starred Chris Sarandon, Roddy McDowall and William Ragsdale as Charlie Brewster, a curious teen that discovers his next door neighbor is a vampire.
For years, there have been numerous attempts to revive a Fright Night remake with all indications pointing towards a name only remake that would take place at an amusement park. (Funhouse anyone?) Thankfully, it seems their sticking to the original films’ story. The article says, “The new version will keep the comedy-horror tone while modernizing the effects.”
Considering vampires are “hot” at the moment, the revival of this Fright Night remake isn’t surprising. Let’s hope for the best!
