The upcoming redo of ‘Fright Night,' the 1985 cult comedy horror film, fills out the cast with David Tennant, star of the BBC series
Doctor Who and Christopher Mintz-Plasse who played Fishlegs in

The actors join Anton Yelchin ( Terminator Salvation, Star Trek), a teen who discovers the neighbor is a vampire, Toni Collette ( Little Miss Sunshine) as his disbelieving mother, and Colin Farrell, the neighborly vampire.
Tennant plays Peter Vincent, a character from the original film, who is a Las Vegas magician in this version, and supposedly a vampire expert. Mintz-Plasse plays Evil Ed, Yelchin's friend.
