Colin Farrell as a vampire in photos from Fright Night

Director Craig Gillespie (who will also be directing PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES) has taken on the remake of the 1985 comedy/horror film FRIGHT NIGHT. The film stars Colin Farrell, David Tennant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Dave Franco and Toni Collette. The story revolves around a teenager who discovers that his next door neighbor (Farrell) is really a vampire. Farrell describes his character as, “..he’s probably got something of a death wish. He’s really just tired of hiding in the shadows, literally.” Interesting. FRIGHT NIGHT is set to open in theaters on August 19, 2011.
I never saw the original film but I do like the idea of Colin Farrell as a vampire. I don’t think people think of Farrell as a comedian, but he can pull off funny. I’m not into horror but I may not be able to pass this film up, even though it’s yet another vampire film.
