Fright Night Remake on the Way

DreamWorks is developing a remake of Fright Night, the 1985 horror-comedy flick written and directed by Tom Holland that starred Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Stephen Geoffreys and Roddy McDowall. The original Fright Night centered around a teenager who discovers that his neighbors are vampires. No writer has been hired, but the updated version will keep the comedy-horror tone while modernizing the effects. Michael Gaeta and Alison Rosenzweig (Windtalkers) of are producing along with Michael De Luca (Ghost Rider). Rosenzweig, who also is setting up remakes of The Reincarnation of Peter Proud and Angel Heart with De Luca, brought the project to him. Fright Night marked the directorial debut of Holland, who went on to helm Fatal Beauty, Child's Play, which is also in the process of being remade, The Temp and Stephen King's Thinner. A sequel, Fright Night Part 2, opened in 1988.
