Hollywood newcomer Emily Montague is set to do a little necking with Colin Farrell in DreamWork’s upcoming remake of the classic 1985 bloodsucker-comedy Fright Night. The 25-year-old starlet will play victim to Farrell’s lady-killer vamp Jerry Dandridge.
Originally directed by Tom Holland (Child’s Play), Fright Night centers on horror fan Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) as he attempts to convince folks that Dandridge, his new neighbor, is a vampire.
The remake, directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) and penned by Marti Noxon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), is now set in Las Vegas.
Costars include Imogen Poots as Charley’s girlfriend Amy, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as “Evil” Ed Thompson, Toni Collete as Charley’s mom, David Tennant as vampire-killer/Vegas magician Peter Vincent, and Sandra Vergara (Sophia’s sister) as Vincent’s insanely hot assistant.
Fright Night is currently shooting in New Mexico and is slated for release on Oct. 7, 2011.
The original Fright Night made Clatto’s list of 15 Vampire Movies That Won’t Make You Gay.
