HollywoodReporter.com is reporting that DreamWorks is in the process of picking up a remake of Fright Night. DreamWorks co-president of production Mark Sourian is overseeing for the studio, which has rarely foraged in the horror genre for material. Its most recent two outings – The Uninvited and The Ruins – grossed just $29 million and $17 million, respectively. But its remake of The Ring and its sequel grossed $390 million worldwide.
The original Fright Night, written and directed by Tom Holland in 1985, was a horror comedy about a teenager who discovers that his neighbors are vampires. No writer has been hired, but the updated version will keep the comedy-horror tone while modernizing the effects.
