Get Ready for "Fright Night" Remake! Anton Yelchin in Talks, "Lars and the Real Girl" Director to Helm
Anton Yelchin portrayed Chekov in "Star Trek" and starred as Kyle Reese in "Terminator Salvation," now, the actor is in negotiations to play Charlie Brewster in "Fright Night," DreamWorks' remake of the 1985 vampire movie.
Craig Gillespie, the guy who gave us "Lars and the Real Girl," is directing the new version. "Lars" talks about a guy who believes his sex doll is a real girl, while "Fright Night" revolves around a teen who's convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, but no one will believe him.
Gillespie will be directing from a script written by Marti Noxon who's familiar with exploring the vampire territory having produced and written episodes for the fantastic "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" TV show.
For now, let's look at the original "Fright Night" trailer and imagine Yelchin playing the Brewster character which was originally played by William Ragsdale. Oh yeah, and who will replace the late, great Roddy McDowall?
