Dreamworks Plans “Fright Night” Remake

DreamWorks is developing a remake of the 1985 vampire horror comedy cult classic “Fright Night” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Tom Holland’s original follows a teenager (William Ragsdale) who discovers that his neighbor (Chris Sarandon) is a vampire. He seeks the help of a rundown elderly B-movie marathon host (Roddy McDowell) to help him stop the monster.

No writer has been hired, but the updated version will keep the comedy-horror tone while modernizing the effects.

Michael De Luca, Michael Gaeta and Alison Rosenzweig will produce.
