Fright Night remake killed
The planned remake of Fright Night has been cancelled, thank the lord. The eighties horror film which I remember featuring the immortal line "oh, you're so cool Brewster" was to receive a modern day remake with some drastic changes in storyline.
It seems that the project has been going on for some time and it's gone through three different rewrites of the script, with initial word being that they wanted to remake it in name only, oh dear, another classic film destroyed.
Fright Night told of how a teenager found out that a vampire moved in across the road from his house and he tries to persuade his favourite TV star, a faded has been who hosts a late night monster series and touts himself as a monster killer, to help him destroy the creature.
So it's great news that it's not being remade now as we hear through ShockTillYouDrop that the idea has been scrapped. One would think that after the third script rewrite they would have thought it wasn't worth it, actually they should have thought that from the very beginning and scrapped it before it began, but come the latest attempt it was too much trouble.
All fans of the original can breathe a sigh of relief, and if you haven't seen it already then you should.
