Fright Night – Las Vegas Style

A remake of the classic horror movie “Fright Night” will be filmed in Las Vegas beginning this July.  If this movie doesn’t sound awesome, I don’t know what does!

it’s no longer set in humdrum suburbia, but the city of a thousand gangster slayings and the scene of Hunter S. Thompson’s infamous booze and drug-fuelled weekend – Las Vegas.

Anton Yelchin will be playing Charley Brewster doing battle with a vampire who lives next door (played by Colin Farrell), while Toni Colette has signed up to play Charley’s disbelieving mother. There’s also rumour the Peter Vincent character will now be a washed up Vegas magician.

I don’t remember if I ever saw the original.  It looks tame by today’s standards.  I’m curious to see how they incorporate the casinos into the movie.  I love movies set in Vegas with poor continuity like “21” where the team enters the Hard Rock, but their suite is in Planet Hollywood overlooking Bellagio then they head down to gamble at Red Rocks.  So nice.

    You never saw Fright Night? It’s a classic! It probably is tame compared to today’s standards, but it kept me on the edge of my seat.
