'Fright Night' remake Anton Yelchin to star
 
Quote:

Anton Yelchin is in negotiations to star in “Fright Night,” DreamWorks’ remake of the cult 1985 vampire film.
Quote:

Craig Gillespie, the director behind 2007’s “Lars and the Real Girl,” is helming the new version, which sticks to the concept of a teen being convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, although no one will believe him.
Quote:

Michael De Luca and Alison R. Rosenzweig are producing the new “Fright.” Lloyd Ivan Miller, Michael Gaeta and Josh Bratman are exec producing.

Eh. No Roddy McDowell, no nuthin'.

^Yep. Trying to find someone comparable to Roddy McDowall will be damn near impossible.

Malcolm McDowell? :)

When are they going to leave good movies alone and start remaking bad movies into good ones?

I wonder how they'll approach the Roddy McDowell role, I don't think late night TV hosts are very common these days.

Actually... that's not a bad idea. He's probably the only one I'd be okay with seeing take on Roddy's role.

He runs a popular website?

This seems like a bad idea to me, and I will not be handing over my money to see it.

How about John Noble from Fringe?

^He doesn't have the "former TV host" look--he has more the "Mad Scientist" look.

^^ How about Shatner? :)

All the people being suggested are too old! Find someone around 20 years old.

People aren't talking about the young male lead. They're talking about the character played by Roddy McDowell in the original, who was an old, has-been horror movie actor.

Maybe Robert Englund or Christopher Lee?

I assumed Termis was making a joke about Hollywood's "youth obsession".

Oops! I missed that! (I plead jet lag.)

The tricky part of updating FRIGHT NIGHT is going to be the late-night horror movie host thing, which isn't really part of pop culture anymore. Maybe Peter Vincent is working the convention circuit these days, selling his autograph to horror fans like Charlie?
