Despite generally good reviews, last year’s remake of 80’s cult vampire flick “Fright Night” fizzled at the box-office and that appeared to be that.
In an unexpected twist, word has now come that DreamWorks apparently put the rights to the franchise up for sale after their remake under performed.
A small studio has reportedly snatched them up and are planning to do more, possibly turn it into some sort of direct-to-disc franchise using the name (ala “Tales from the Crypt).
Filming would take place in Romania, but no confirmation has yet been made about any of this. I’ll update as it develops.
