Fright Night Remake On Hold

Screen Gems has apparently ditched its plans for a remake of the classic 80’s vampire feature “Fright Night” reports STYD.

The studio apparently couldn’t find a script they liked after fielding several pitches, and so the update has been shelved for now. The move comes not long after a remake of the vampire western “Near Dark” was also put on hold.

In the original 80’s film, a young man is convinced his new neighbor is a vampire and recruits the help of a classic horror actor turned rundown cable show host to help him prove it.
