With shooting already underway in Bucharest, Romania, Bloody Disgusting received first word that Inbred‘s Chris Waller, pictured above, has landed the lead role of “Evil” Ed Bates in Fox Home Entertainment’s Fright Night 2. Christopher Mintz-Plasse played “Ed” in the 2001 remake. In addition, Will Payne, pictured below, will take on the role of Charlie, donned by Anton Yelchin in the 2011 version. Sean Power takes on the role of Peter Vincent. They will star alongside “Dexter” hottie Jaime Murray, Sacha Parkinson, John-Christian Bateman, Liana Margineanu, Alina Minzu, Adi Hostiuc and Joelle Coutinho.
Murray, who can also be seen in Botched, The Deaths of Ian Stone and Devil’s Playground, 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.”
