McLovin & Doctor Who Join Fright Night!

| Filed under: Film FlickersColin Farrell

So Hollywood is still clinging to this vampire craze thing, even though we're pretty sure it's over unless your name is Robert Pattinson.

Still, a remake of the 1980's cult fave Fright Night is in the works and there are some cool people signed on for the project.

Colin Farrell will be starring as the the vampire who moves into town and bewitches his neighbor, played by Toni Collette. Her son, played by Anton Yelchin, looks to out the vamp for who he really is.

Joining the cast will be David Tennant, better known as Doctor Who, and Christopher "McLovin" Mintz-Plasse. David will play a creepy late-night tv host who deems himself a "vampire expert", while McLovin will play Anton's best friend, who feels slighted that his buddy is ignoring him so he joins the vampire coven.

That all made perfect sense, right?

We really have high hopes for this!

    Can hollyfuk be any more lame



  2. 2

    its "from Doctor Who" or "as the Doctor"
    the character isn't named "doctor who" thats just the name of the show.



  3. 3

    freakin sweet.



  4. 4

    Can't wait to see Tennant channeling another crazy/scary character. His eyes are so compelling. You can be lost in them, or terrified by them.



  5. 5

    Also, what @rageboo said - he should be referred to as "the Doctor" since that is the character's chosen name. The show is called "Doctor Who".

    They need to bring back Stephen Geoffreys for the remake. He was great. Why he turned to porn afterwards is beyond me.



  7. 7

    Stephen Geoffreys is a gay porn star; they call him a "Power Bottom"!

  9. 9

    Even if the script is iffy, Colin will do his best to make it tasty intense. He is fierce on screen, imo.

    WOOT looking forward for Anton Yelchin, David Tennant and Christopher Mintz Plasse!!!

    Yea man, Doctor Who is the name of the show, David Tennant played 'the doctor' =p

    Hey Pervez, it's nice that they used your likeness on the poster.



  13. 13

    i've never seen it before.



  14. 14

  15. 15

    I love McLovin



  16. 16

    Vampire films will never be over. And Colin can bite my neck anytime……



  17. 17

    I really dislike David Tennant. :( This movie is really going to suck.



  18. 18

    That all sounds more like Lost Boys than Fright Night!



  19. 19

    Ok , this might just be excellent.
    It sounds as if thier satying true to the original plot, and all of the actors are actually chill.
    Dr. Who? Ace!



  20. 20

    now david tennants involved i might actually watch this



  21. 21

    Well, there went another remake that did have some glimmer of hope that it might be watchable. The casting of Colin Farrell just ruined it.



  22. 22

    Anything is better than shitty twilight



  23. 23

    sorry Dave even u can't make me watch this tripe



  24. 24

    That's a really COOL old house in that movie pic! And, hell, I'd LOVE to see a ghost or any other goblins or spooks of any kind! Plus, if a hot male vampire wanted to chase me and bite my neck or anything else, I'd even leave my door unlocked for him! I'LL MAIL HIM A KEY! Come hither, cute stuff!



  25. 25
