One more revisitation of classic ’80s horror is moving closer to fruition with the news that a director has signed on to FRIGHT NIGHT, the update of the 1985 favorite about a suburban vampire, for DreamWorks.
Variety reports that Craig Gillespie (pictured) will helm the remake, which was scripted by BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER vet Marti Noxon. The Australian-born Gillespie is a former commercials specialist whose previous big-screen ventures have been comedies: the Billy Bob Thornton-starrer MR. WOODCOCK and the critically praised LARS AND THE REAL GIRL. He’s also a director and consulting producer on the Showtime series UNITED STATES OF TARA. Casting has yet to be announced for FRIGHT NIGHT’s key roles: a high-school guy, his girlfriend and the bloodsucker who moves in next door to him.
