‘Fright Night’ Remake Revived Over at DreamWorks

Sure it’s yet another remake, but this should provide at least a little bit of comfort. “Mad Men” writer-producer Marti Noxon has been hired to pen DreamWorks Studios’ revamp of the 1985 horror comedy Fright Night. Before her work on AMC’s “Mad Men,” Noxon was a writer-producer on the bloodsucker series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel,” so fangs and stakes are in her blood. The new version will keep the comedy-horror tone while modernizing the effects. The original “Fright,” released in 1985, was written and directed by Tom Holland and starred Chris Sarandon, Roddy McDowall and William Ragsdale. Ragsdale played a teenager who discovers his neighbors are vampires. Producers Michael De Luca, Michael Gaeta and Alison Rosenzweig set up the “Fright” project in May. DreamWorks executive Mark Sourian is overseeing for the studio.
