Fright Night Returns!

Dreamworks is in the midst of remaking 1985's cult classic Fright Night, which starred Roddy McDowell, Chris Sarandon, and William Ragsdale. Normally I'm against remakes on principle, but the new Fright Night will be written by Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Mad Men) and star David Tennant and Colin Farrell. Let me repeat that: David Tennant and Colin Farrell. That's brilliant.

David Tennant will be filling the shoes of Roddy McDowell, playing Peter Vincent. First look here.

Colin Farrel will play the vampire-next-door, Jerry Dandridge, Anton Yelchin at Charlie Brewster, Toni Colette at Charlie's mom and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Evil Ed. Chris Sarandon will also make an appearance.

Film is set for release October of 2011.

Here's the original trailer:
