When the original Fright Night hit in 1985, fans of the Tom Holland film would not see a sequel until three years later in ’88 when Fright Night Part II opened, reuniting its main cast members Roddy McDowall and William Ragsdale.
Now, it appears the 2011 Fright Night remake is spawning a sequel of its own, Fright Night 2, however, don’t expect Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin to make a return. ShockTillYouDrop.com pursued rumors that hit over the weekend that a follow-up was in the works and learned that Eduardo Rodriguez (Curandero, Fear Itself, Stash House) is in line to direct.
The direct-to-DVD sequel will be a stand-alone story and begin shooting in Romania soon.
Fright Night told of a young man who learns a vampire has moved in next door. The door spun off of that idea and set the events in Las Vegas where Charlie Brewster enlists Peter Vincent, a Vegas illusionist, to take on the vampire who has targeted his family.
