Fright Night 2's all-new cast has been revealed!

Jan. 9, 2013by: Ike Oden

Well, FRIGHT NIGHT 2 is currently filming in Romania and it seems the film's new cast has finally been revealed. Here's how the line-up breaks down (with accompanying pictures for reference):

Will Payne has been cast as the new Charlie Brewster, taking over the role from Anton Yelchin.

Chris Waller (star of the upcoming INBRED) has displaced Christopher Mintz-Plasse as the new Evil Ed.

Sean Power is the new fearless vampire killer Peter Vincent, replacing David Tennant.

Jaime Murray (pictured below), Sacha Parkinson, John-Christian Bateman, Liana Margineanu, Alina Minzu, Adi Hostiuc and Joelle Coutinho round out the rest of the cast. The direct-to-DVD sequel is directed by Eduardo Rodriguez and seems to ignore the events of the remake in favor of retelling the core story of Tom Holland's 1985 original. Check out the synopsis below and stay tuned for further FRIGHT NIGHT 2 updates.

When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with his horror obsessed friend “Evil” Ed and ex- girlfriend AMY in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show “Fright Night,” to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, who’s blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.

Extra Tidbit: How are we feeling about this sequel, kids? The flick smells like a major cash grab to me...

I wouldn't mind so much except for the fact that they're CALLING it Fright Night 2 like it's meant to be a sequel to the remake...

ok I'm confused, it's a remake of a remake (which I might add the first remake just came out not that long ago shesh....) but it's called Fright Night 2? This smells of failure already. I guess we will see.

but wait...

that photo of Sean Power does not give me much hope for the new Peter Vincent, and if it's going to ignore all that happened in the remake and go with the original, then "Evil" Ed should already be turned.... stay true to the original and start it off with the one true Vampire Evil-Ed already hunting Charlie and Peter.... otherwise... no thanks

So it's a remake of a remake of the original film? And it's a straight-to-DVD film too? Yeah, definitely a cash grab.
