Opening in theaters on August 19th is a new 3D horror film from Lars and the Real Girl director Craig Gillespie called Fright Night. The movie is actually a remake of the classic 1985 film of the same name starring Chris Sarandon (The Princess Bride) , and Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes). The new updated version stars Colin Farrell (Miami Vice) as Jerry Dandrige, a vampire who moves into a Las Vegas suburb and causes trouble for his neighbor, a local high school student named Charley played by Anton Yelchin (Terminator Salvation). The film also stars David Tennant (TV's Doctor Who), Imogen Poots (Centurion), Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense), Dave Franco (Charlie St. Cloud), and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick-Ass).

Rick Florino, Editor-in-Chief of our sister site ArtistDirect, recently had a chance to sit down with several members of the cast and crew from Fright Night on behalf of IAR.  He spoke candidly with actors Collin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, as well as director Craig Gillespie about the new remake; it's ties to the original, our society's obsession with vampires, and Colin Farrell's intimidating interpretation of Jerry Dandrige.
