If you’re anything like me, you were underwhelmed by the 2011 Fright Night remake starring Colin Farrell. The Craig Gillespie-directed remake was so forgettable, in fact, that I rented it twice.
It seems that not everyone thought it was bad, as another Fright Night is in the works, but no one is really sure what to call it. Most recently, Fangoria tossed around the term “Reboot-quel.” The pub also has reported that Jaime Murray (Dexter) will play the villain, Eduardo Rodriguez will be directing, and Fright Night 2 should be out sometime in 20113.
The official Fright Night 2 synopsis reads as follows:
“When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with hisobsessed friend “Evil” Ed and ex-girlfriend Amy in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show Fright Night, to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, who’s blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.”
