Fright Night remake

Recommended Posts

Negotiations have begun with a director for DreamWorks' proposed Fright Night remake.

According to the L.A. Times, Craig Gillespie is the man the studio is keen on. He directed the quirky Lars and the Real Girl and serves as a director and producer on The United States of Tara.

Dreamworks hired Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mad Men) to update Tom Holland's story of a teenager who learns a vampire has moved into the house next door. The teen hires a local horror movie host to help slay the creature before it claims his girlfriend.

Last November, we learned the script might take a meta approach in which the main protagonist reaches out to an actual star of the original Fright Night film to help with his vampire problem. We're not certain if Noxon's script sticks with this idea.

This one one of my favorites growing up, but no Stephen Geoffreys means I don't care.
