Remember when Colin Farrell was Sam Worthington? Those were the days. Colin Farrell can usually be seen in indie movies nowadays, but he’ll be returning to the Hollywood machine for the remake of “Fright Night”.
Farrell will play the vampire neighbor originally played by Chris Sarandon in the original, joining young Kyle Reese aka Anton Yelchin (playing the horror movie enthusiast who realizes something is amiss with his just-moved in neighbor), and Toni Collette.
Craig Gillespie is directing the remake, which will follow the original closely. Still uncast: the washed up horror movie actor who Yelchin’s Charley Brewster recruits to help stake his neighbor the vampire. Roddy McDowall played the role in the original.
