Now, it appears the 2011 Fright Night remake is spawning a sequel of its own, Fright Night 2, however, don't expect Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin to make a return. ShockTillYouDrop.com pursued rumors that hit over the weekend that a follow-up was in the works and learned that Eduardo Rodriguez (Curandero, Fear Itself, Stash House) is in line to direct.
The direct-to-DVD sequel will be a stand-alone story and begin shooting in Romania soon.
Fright Night told of a young man who learns a vampire has moved in next door. The door spun off of that idea and set the events in Las Vegas where Charlie Brewster enlists Peter Vincent, a Vegas illusionist, to take on the vampire who has targeted his family.
