Colin Farrell, Toni Collette Join "Fright Night" Remake 


Colin Farrell and Toni Collette will join Anton Yelchin in DreamWorks' "Fright Night" remake of the cult 1985 flick.

Farrell is set to play the vampire Jerry, originally portrayed by Chris Sarandon. Jerry is a seemingly cool guy who's really preying on the neighborhood. Collette will play Yelchin's mom who falls under Jerry's spell.

This marks Farrell's return to big studio work after a string of memorable indie films. "Fright Night" will be released by Disney.

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.
