DreamWorks Remaking Fright Night

The Hollywood Reporter says that DreamWorks Pictures is in the process of picking up a remake of Fright Night.

Michael Gaeta and Alison Rosenzweig of Gaeta/Rosenzweig Films are producing along with Michael De Luca.

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. No writer has been hired, but the updated version will keep the comedy-horror tone while modernizing the effects.
