Colin Farrell to star in Fright Night remake

Craig Gillespie ( Lars and The Real Girl ) is behind the directors chair on the reboot/remake of the 1985 horror film Fright Night, with Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Toni Collette, David Tennant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Sofia Vergara starring.
Shooting is underway in Albuquerque, New Mexico with the ever impressive Javier Aguirresarobe ( The Road, Goya's Ghosts ) handling the cinematography while the film will be seeing a October 7, 2011 release date.

In May 2009 it was revealed that DreamWorks would be overseeing a remake of Fright Night. Michael Gaeta and Alison Rosenzweig are set to produce. Marti Noxon wrote currently on the script of the remake. The film is produced by Mike De Luca and will screen in 2011. In March 2010 was announced that Craig Gillespie will direct the remake, which be financed by Steven Spielberg with his company DreamWorks. It will be released and distributed by Disney under the Touchstone banner, as part of the 30-picture deal between DreamWorks Studios and the Walt Disney Company.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
