Colin Farrell is set to star opposite milfy Toni Collette in DreamWorks’ upcoming Fright Night reboot. The 33-year-old Irish actor will play the part of Jerry Dandridge, the suave vampire who moves in next door to geeky horror fan Charley Brewster’s (Anton Yelchin) house to feed on fresh meat and fuck his mom.
Farrell can be seen in the fantasy-themed features The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Neil Jordan’s soon-to-be released Ondine, but Fright Night marks his first foray into horror.
Collette, who plays Charlie’s mom, currently headlines Showtime’s “The United States of Tara.” She also starred in M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense.
The original Fright Night was a hit in 1985 and is included on Clatto’s list of 15 Vampire Movies That Won’t Make You Gay.
