Bloody Disgusting can exclusively report that Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has green lit production for Fright Night 2 and has cast Jaime Murray (pictured above; “Warehouse 13,” “Dexter”) in the lead role!
Murray, who played the exotic and seductive Lila Tournay in the second season of “Dexter,” can also be seen in Botched, The Deaths of Ian Stone and Devil’s Playground. She will play an Romanian vampire in the Eduardo Rodriguez-directed sequel.
In addition, it sounds as if “Evil” Ed and Peter Vincent will be returning for the direct-to-disc sequel. Here’s the official plot provided to Bloody: “When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with his horror obsessed friend “Evil” Ed and ex-girlfriend AMY in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show “Fright Night,” to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, who’s blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.”
Tom Holland directed the 1985 Fright Night that spawned a sequel in 1988 that reunited its main cast members Roddy McDowall and William Ragsdale.
Filming begins in Bucharest, Romania next week.
