DreamWorks has announced that they plan on releasing Craig Gillespie’s Fright Night 3D in theaters on October 7, 2011. Penned by Marti Noxon, the redo will star Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Toni Collette, David Tennant, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. The original Fright Night, written and directed by Tom Holland in 1985, was a horror comedy about a teenager who discovers that his neighbors are vampires. The new version heads to Vegas and puts a darker spin on the head vamp, who will be played by Farrell. “He’s a much more ‘Jaws’-like vampire in the Amblin tradition,” Noxon said.
