‘Doctor Who’ Star David Tennant, ‘Kick-Ass’ Star Christopher Mintz-Plasse Join ‘Fright Night’ Remake

Fright Night

The cast for DreamWorks’ ’80s horror movie remake Fright Night is really turning into a excellent collection of names and talents. This is absolutely unexpected considering the film being remade and similar remake projects previously attempted.

It’s being reported that David Tennant and Christopher Mintz-Plasse have now joined the cast. Tennant is of course best known for his work playing The Doctor on Doctor Who, and Mintz-Plasse has become increasingly-popular beginning as McLovin in Superbad and going on to great parts in Role Models and the recent comic book hit, Kick-Ass.

Mr. 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.
