Fright Night remake

11.11.2009

A planned update of the memorable 80s vampire flick FRIGHT NIGHT had been tucked away inside a coffin, but now someone has removed the stake and resuscitated the bloodsuckers.

The Dreamworks remake (previously at Screen Gems) will be penned by TV veteran Marti Noxon, a writer-producer for "Mad Men" and former creative regular on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel", which gives her plenty of cred for the material.

The original flick involved a young man who is (rightfully) convinced his new neighbor is a vampire. It featured a cast that went on to stuff like "Herman's Head," "Married with Children" and porn, and was followed by a less-succesful sequel.

The new version will reportedly keep the same horror-comedy tone, but will likely "upgrade" the FX with tons of CGI.

Extra Tidbit: Speaking of upgrades, the sequel also swapped out Amanda Bearse for the way more desirable Tracy Lind as William Ragsdale's chick. Wonder what she's up to now?
