Dark Horizons has reported that Colin Farrell and actress Toni Collette have joined the remake of 1985 vampire classic Fright Night for Dreamworks Pictures. Chris Sarandon played the vampire role in the original and the project marks Farrell’s first major studio effort in several years.

In case you missed it the first time around, the story follows Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin), a young man who is convinced his new neighbor Jerry Dandrige (Farrell) is a vampire. Collette will play Yelchin’s mom, who at first disapproves of the new arrival but changes her attitude when she meets the magnetic man.
