Just put Edgar Wright on it and call it a day.
And more David Tennant since he’s actually recognizable overseas.
Marti Noxon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), whose last name sounds like an element on the periodic table, has turned in a new draft adapting Seth Grahame-Smith’s bestseller.
How can a non-zombie be expected to make a movie about zombies?
Gillespie seems to have eaten his way back to the front of the horde to direct Jane Austin, but with zombies.
Great googley-moogley. Sofia Vergara has a sister. And she's hot. And judging from the picture above, that sister has a friend who is a photographer/dentist. But wait, there's more! She's also an actress, and has just been cast in Craig Gillespie's Fright Night remake. Sandra Vergara will play the girlfriend and assistant to David Tennant's magician turned reluctant vampire hunter. F*cking magicians, man. Always pulling top-notch ass. No matter how fugly/creepy/gropey they are as people. Never thought I'd rue the day that I didn't learn to juggle. (THR)
Director: Craig Gillespie Cast: Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Toni ColletteSynopsis: A charismatic vampire tries to convince his film obsessed neighbor that he is a vampire who has come to suck as much blood as he can, thereby eradicating plenty of human life.
Take notes, boys. THIS is how you peacock.In news that is sure to make you say, "Hrrmm, yeah. That's okay. I guess," Christopher Mintz-Plasse and David Tennant have joined Craig Gillespie's Fright Night remake. The pair will use their soft joke-fingers to comically-relieve and tug the laughter out of audiences. Gently at first, but then harder and faster as the film approaches its climax.Tennant will play Peter Vincent, a character who in the original movie was played by Roddy McDowall as the host of a late-night horror show. In the remake, he’s a Las Vegas magician whose show revolves around horror-movie imagery. Vincent claims to be a vampire expert, but when the teen turns to him for assistance, he’s less than helpful. Mintz-Plasse is playing Evil Ed, Yelchin’s friend who feels slighted that Charlie has left his nerdy past behind and thus joins the vampire’s coven. In my experience you need to be careful when a middle-aged man dresses in a cape and claims to be a vampire expert. Last time I did that, the chubby teens at the Hot Topic turned me in to mall security. (THR)
