Jenny wright in NEAR DARK

For younger audiences that name means next to nothing, but many of us 80s teen boys remember having a huge crush on Jenny wright when cult-classic NEAR DARK came out. Isn't there a remake of that one under way? Why am I even asking - Of course there is!

The lovely actress is set to come back in front of the camera for the first time in well over a decade with the cool-sounding dark comedy MURDER FOR DUMMYS. The film follows a a married couple who along with a friend try to cover up their running over a trick-or-treater on Halloween night. Things get messy when the friend starts developing a taste for murder following the event.

The indie project is currently in pre-production with intent on releasing in time for Halloween next year. 'cause that's when a Halloween film should be released, around friggin Halloween. As opposed to, say, August.

Extra Tidbit: Jenny's last "big" role was in THE LAWNMOWER MAN in '92. I distinctly remember falling asleep during that one. Any fan of it out there care to tell me how it ends?

I don't remember exactly but I think they "hacked" his brain and turned him back into a shortbus rider.

SWEET!!!! NEAR DARK is a classic vamp film i grew up watching. Bill Paxton owned that film.

Yes, we all had crushes on her. I can't wait to see her on the big screen again.

Yes.

I Developed an young crush on Jenny Wright after seeing her in LAWNMOWER MAN. Her sex scene with Fahey made me stand at attention (pun intended).

SPOLIER ALERT: in the end of the movie Jobe becomes all powerful, kills everyone who was a asshole to him (lets Brosnan, Wright, and the kid live), then injects his body into to that massive VR machine, and takes over the world.

Like many young men, Jenny Wright captured my heart in Near Dark. I remember the very touching moment in the documentary when Adrian Pasdar gave a message to her. Good to see her back. I saw another movie of hers, a horror movie that escapes me. Wasn't good but she was stunning and enough to make the movie worth while.

All I can remember about The Lawnmower Man is Jeff Fahey with some stupid looking hair and a monkey with a gun.
