First Official Look at David Tennant in Fright Night Remake

Two new images from Craig Gillespie’s remake of “Fright Night”, including our first official look at former Doctor Who’s David Tennant looking completely unrecognizable from his Whovian days. Tennant is playing Vegas magician Peter Vincent in the remake, a role clearly patterned after that Mindfreak guy whats-his-name. In the original, Roddy McDowall played Vincent, back then a washed up horror movie actor.

Co-starring Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Imogen Poots, and Toni Collette.

Beware the fangs August 19, 2011.
