A Casting Shocker: Colin Farrell Vamps Up for ‘Fright Night’

The one thing with horror movies is that unknowns or up-and-comers are typically cast in the lead roles. I’m still sitting in shock as DreamWorks has announced that Colin Farrell will sink his teeth into Fright Night, their’ remake of Tom Holland’s cult 1985 film that also will see Toni Collette play a mom who falls under his spell, reports Heat Vision. The two join Anton Yelchin in the new version, which sticks to the original concept of a teen (Yelchin) being convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, though no one will believe him. Farrell has the plum role of the vampire, named Jerry, who on the surface appears to be a cool guy but is really preying on the neighborhood. Chris Sarandon played the role in the 1985 pic. Collette is Yelchin’s mom, who at first disapproves of the new arrival but changes her attitude when she meets the magnetic man and — surprise — doesn’t believe her son when he tries to tell her Jerry is a vampire.
