The official synopsis has been revealed for DreamWork's 3D remake of the 1985 film, Fright Night. The story will get a modern retelling but will retain the essence of the the original cult favorite.
Fright Night, directed by Craig Gillespie, comes to theaters August 19th, 2011 and stars Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, David Tennant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Sandra Vergara. It is also rumored that the actor who played the original vampire, Chris Sarandon, will cameo in the latest incarnation.
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.
