Tennant to Lead Fright Night 2?

The movie hasn’t even been released yet but there are already rumours that David Tennant will be getting a leading role in Fright Night 2, a sequel to a remake that has yet to be released!

The original 1980’s Fright Night saw a horror film fan realise that his next door neighbour was a vampire and then had to find a way to deal with him. The remake has the same basic plot but with a few twenty first century updates. In the remake out later this year, Tennant plays the part of Peter Vincent, a magician turned vampire hunter.

The word on Hollywood boulevard is that David’s performance is so good that the sequel (which is yet to be announced) will give him a lager leading role with lots more to do; this could well be the actor’s big break in America that he’s been looking for!

One “source” at the production company said:

“Our source tells us that DreamWorks is considering turning the franchise over to David Tennant for Fright Night 2.”

If this happens then that means that the film will be a sequel to a remake of a film that already has a sequel (Fright Night Part 2). And they say that American films are running out of plot ideas!


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
