Joining the popularity of vampire films, Fright Night, the comedy-horror film from 1985 will be rebooted, starring Colin Farrell. The story centers on a teenager who discovers vampires living next door though no one believes him.

Farrell stars as the neighborly vampire and Emmy-winner Toni Collette ( United States of Tara, Little Miss Sunshine) will portray a mother who falls under his spell. The teen will be played by Anton Yelchin ( Star Trek, Terminator Salvation).

It is directed by Craig Gillespie who made Lars and the Real Girl and United States of Tara, the cable TV series on US channel Showtime.

Coming off Crazy Heart, next up for Farrell is Horrible Bosses co-starring Paul Rudd ( I Love You, Man) about guys who plan to murder their employers for standing in their way of happiness.
