Dave Franco (known to me as the crazy annoying guy on “Scrubs” and Happy Madison’s The Shortcut) has been added to the cast of Craig Gillespie’s remake of 1985 campy horror film Fright Night, reports the Playlist. The project is currently shooting in New Mexico and boasts a strong cast including Anton Yelchin as the lead, Toni Collette as his mother, Imogen Poots as his love interest, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as his friend “Evil Ed”, David Tennant as magician Peter Vincent and Colin Farrell as a Jaws-like vampire living next door. “I play the arrogant asshole-bully,” explained Franco. “Anton plays the main kid so I’m his nemesis at school until he runs into Colin who is supposed to be the ultimate bad guy in the movie. Yeah I play the d-k, so it’s fun.” He adds: “This one will stand apart because it’s a comedic horror movie — the same thing as ‘Drag Me To Hell’ and ‘Shaun Of The Dead.’” Penned by Marti Noxon (“Mad Men”), the vamps move in on October 7, 2011.
