Re: 'Fright Night' remake Anton Yelchin to star

I'm not overly familiar with Tennant, but isn't 39 a little young to be a washed up, has been movie star?

Maybe not, but I think Peter would be better as someone with some years on him. The more I think about it, Robert Englund would have been perfect.

Peter Vincent is going to be a "Criss Angel-type" in this remake...

Re: 'Fright Night' remake Anton Yelchin to star

Exactly, he's going to be horror-themed Vegas magician, not an aging horror movie star.

Probably not a bad way to bring the material up to date. For better or for worse, late night horror movie hosts aren't really part of the culture anymore. It would have dated the remake.

McLovin as Evil Ed isn't too bad of a choice.

Yeah, it really wouldn't make sense in a 2010s-based movie to have a horror movie host.

Brit actress Imogen Poots is the female lead in 'Fright Night'

Poots will play Yelchin’s girlfriend, part of the popular crowd and unaware of his earlier life as a nerd.

Re: 'Fright Night' remake Anton Yelchin to star

Anton Yelchin is playing Charlie Brewster. I wonder who will be cast as Charlie's girlfriend Amy, his best friend Evil, vampire Jerry Dandridge, Billy Cole,who was Jerry's human watchdog, & Peter Vincent?

I figured they'd be having him be an actor or something - someone famous for playing a Rupert Giles type part - but this works.

Not sure about Colin Farrell as Jerry though...

I hate to say this, but I think the original Fright Night was terrible. Bad story, bad acting.

Re: 'Fright Night' remake Anton Yelchin to star

An interesting idea, but don't see how a remake could even come close to being as good as the original.

Re: this guy you're calling Evil Ed.

I think he's actually called Evil Ernie. After all, when he got his own comic book back in the late '80s, that's what it was called.
