Some brand new shots have popped up via Empire Online of the new Fright Night remake from director Craig Gillespie (United States of Tara) and writer Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), based on the 1985 original.
Not all too exciting as far as movie stills go but it’s cool to see something on this movie since it feels like it’s been in production forever now. Although we do get a smoking Colin Farrell as vampire Jerry Dandridge picture and that’s worth the price of admission to me so it’s all worth it.
But digress, the images also feature Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) as the innocent teenage next-door-neighbor Charley Brewster, Imogen Poots as Amy, Charley’s girlfriend who falls for Jerry (can you blame her?) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick-Ass) as ‘Evil’ Ed.
Ahh, ‘But someone’s missing,” you say. Indeed, there are no shots of ex-Doctor Who star David Tennant as “vampire hunter” Peter Vincent. A promo shot was floating around a few months ago depicting the actor as a much…changed Vincent compared to Roddy McDowell’s look in the original. Though Empire says they’ll have a world-premiere look at him in their April 28h issue.
Fright Night is set for a September 2 release.
