Exclamation "Fright Night" being remade. Chekov 2.0 cast as nuCharlie Brewster.

So far the actor who played Chekov in Abrams' Star Trek flick has been cast as central character Charlie Brewster.

I have no other information regarding this remake.

Thoughts?

Oh good, another crappy 80's remake. At least Scream 4 isn't trying to be anything more than another sequel.

That would make sense. But I hope Chris Sarandon isn't that desperate for money.

There's no originality left in Hollywood.

Cheesy 80s movie to boot. Not as cheesy as Lost Boys but getting there.

Well Optie and Amberboy, how come you both don't piss on the old school made remakes like The Fly or The Thing? what makes them different than the ones made today?

DJ, why do you keep asking the same question every bleeding time a new remake comes up? I've answered you before why those two particular films were better than the originals. And I'm not going to repeat myself.

Personally i think this remake is just a cash-in on the latest vampire mania with Twilight, Vampire Diaries, Let The Right One In, Buffy, Angel, True Blood and so much more don't you all think?

But Chris Surandon seems like an odd choice to play a character he did in the original except it's Peter.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel haven't been on TV since 2003 and 2004 respectively so don't count them in the 'vampire mania' as you call it. And it has nothing to do with the aforementioned vampire shows either. It has to do with all the other crappy horror remakes being put out. Next it'll be Creepshow.

Re: "Fright Night" being remade. Chekov 2.0 cast as nuCharlie Brewster.

Do you believe the horror movie remakes made in the late 70s, 80's and early 90's were the best? now the movies you grew up with were actually remakes like take for example "Ben-Hur" remake of 1929 movie, "Ten Commandments" remake of 1927 movie, "Father of the Bride" was a remake of 1949 movie, "Scarface" with Al Pacino was a remake 1932's movie (The most popular gangster movie next to Godfather yet today the rappers and punks don't even know Scarface was a remake), and so on.

John Carpenter and David Cronenberg did their remakes with love, admiration and passion for the original hokey movies as they made them into special horror movie remakes instead of for money. what about The Blob from 1988, Cat People with Malcom Mcdowell from 1982, Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978, Night of the Living Dead 1990, Little Shop of Horrors 1986, Cape Fear 1991 etc. were those done for money or with love by talented filmmakers who cared about the original?

I also hear a rumor that Evil Ed himself Stephen Geoffreys wants to do a cameo for this remake. But i cannot believe that guy went on in the 90's till 2001 to do gay porn, can you freakin' believe it? GAY PORN.
