From Geekofdoom.com: The DreamWorks’ ’80s horror movie remake Fright Nighthas added two new names to its project.
It’s being reported that David Tennant 9The 10th Doctor himself) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin from Superbad) have now joined the cast.
Tennant will be playing Peter Vincent, a magician (changed from the horror TV show host he played in the original) who specializes in the realms of horror and vampires, and offers his knowledge and assistance to Charlie (Anton Yelchin), the main character who suspects that his new neighbor is a vampire. Mintz-Plasse will be taking on the role of Evil Ed, Charlie’s best friend.
Last month it was announced that Colin Farrell would be playing Jerry Dandrige, the vampire that moves in next door, and Toni Collette would be playing Charlie’s mother.
