Second verse, same as the first?
Bloody Disgusting is reporting the upcoming sequel to the remake of FRIGHT NIGHT has cast Jaime Murray (best known as the unpredictable firestarter Lila Tournay in DEXTER's second season) as its villain. In a seeming mix of recycling the first's plot with some flavor of the 1988 sequel, the film sees Evil Ed and Peter Vincent return (this time Vincent is in fact, a fictional vampire killer) as Charlie Brewster studies abroad and runs afoul of Gerri, his professor/a vampire.
This is the official synopsis: “When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with his horror obsessed friend “Evil” Ed and ex-girlfriend Amy in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show “Fright Night,” to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, who’s blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.”
Sequel? Reboot-quel? Whatever the case, director Eduardo Rodriguez certainly has a shot at topping the 2011 predecessor.
