DreamWorks Remaking Fright Night Source: The Hollywood Reporter May 14, 2009
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.
VERY nervous of this. The original is one of my favourite vampire films (combined with the sequel, which also rocked!) and I'm not sure if they'll get the humour right in a remake.
Still, it's good they're doing something with it as it was a brilliant possible-franchise that got swept under the carpet. If they're not doing a third film, a remake could be cool.
