Remake of ’85 film goes in new direction
ShockTillYouDrop.com discovered Sony’s Screen Gems is sifting through Hollywood’s supply of writers for a Fright Night redo. But this one, from the sounds of it, is “in name only.” A sundry of sources tell us executive producer Scott Strauss who may or may not still be attached and who recently shepherded Breach, starring Ryan Phillippe, and executive produced Robert Englund’s Killer Pad, wants to take Fright Night in a different direction. One involving an amusement park in some way.
Our immediate thought is “They’re remaking Tobe Hooper’s Funhouse and calling it Fright Night.” We haven’t heard a peep yet regarding how Gems is coming along with the pitch process, but we’ll keep you in the loop!
