According to The Hollywood Reporter, Colin Farrell and Toni Collette will sink their teeth into “Fright Night,” DreamWorks’ remake of the cult 1985 film. The two join Anton Yelchin in the new version, which sticks to the original concept of a teen (Yelchin) being convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, though no one will believe him. Farrell has the plum role of the vampire, named Jerry, who on the surface appears to be a cool guy but is really preying on the neighborhood. Chris Sarandon played the role in the 1985 pic. Collette is Yelchin’s mom, who at first disapproves of the new arrival but changes her attitude when she meets the magnetic man and – surprise – doesn’t believe her son when he tries to tell her Jerry is a vampire.
