Director Craig Gillespie's Fright Night remake won't open until August, but MTV has unveiled a new preview clip from the vampire movie, which sees Colin Farrell take over the role of antagonist Jerry Dandridge from Chris Sarandon, who played the character in the 1985 original. Like the original, Dandridge moves into a new neighborhood, but his teenaged next-door neighbor Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) soon learns the truth about his undead nature.
Earlier this month, Gillespie said Farrell was the "perfect" pick for the role of Dandridge because "there's a dangerous quality to him, and he's very charismatic." In the preview clip, Farrell's Dandridge has a heart-to-heart with Brewster where he delivers a warning that displays both his charisma and the dangerous nature of his character. watch the clip >> Posted 05.31.11 by Ryan
