Craig Gillespie’s Fright Night, the remake we already had a little chat about, and that’s exactly how you know that the movie stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant and Imogen Poot.
Today, we’re here to update our previous reports, because guys from DreamWorks have finally shared some official synopsis with us! Make sure you check it out:
“Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend.
But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice.
After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.”
Gillespie is directing from a script by Marti Noxon, with producers Michael De Luca, Alison R. Rosenzweig and executive producers are Ray Angelic, Lloyd Ivan Miller, Michael Gaeta and Josh Bratman.
The upcoming 3D remake of the 1985 comedy-horror classic Fright Night has a summer release on August 19, 2011.
