This one’s a shocker!! Dread Central broke the story that the FRIGHT NIGHT remake may be gearing up to start filming a sequel in Romania. Read on:
Here’s some unexpected news that we’ll file under rumor for now, but sources surrounding the Fright Night franchise have left us confident enough to report to you that a sequel is looming that may take the series in a different direction.
Apparently the sequel to the remake of Fright Night is gearing up for production in Romania. Here’s what we’ve been able to dig up… DreamWorks put the rights to the franchise up for sale after their remake underperformed. Another smaller studio snatched them up and their plan is to do more Fright Nights and potentially spin it off into its own ‘brand’ a la Tales from the Crypt. It’s unclear at the moment whether this next film will be a stand alone flick with more stand alone sequels happening afterward or if it’s going the straight anthology film route.
We’re working to get official confirmation, and once it comes we’ll either throw some meat on this skeleton of a story or debunk it completely. Stay tuned.
My feelers are out there too. Anything I hear about this being either true or bogus, you’ll be the next to know. What do you think? Does the FRIGHT NIGHT remake need a sequel?
