FRIGHT NIGHT Completes Casting With Imogen Poots
The producers of “Fright Night” have found their final cast member in British actress Imogen Poots. Poots will play the lead female role in DreamWorks’ remake of the 1985 film. Poots is the final addition to a cast that already includes the likes of Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, and Toni Collette.
The film focuses on a young teen, Yelchin, who is convinced that his new neighbor, Farrell, is actually a vampire. Yelchin’s character struggles to convince his mother, Collette, and others around him of Farrell’s true identity. Poots will play the role of Yelchin’s girlfriend in the film. With casting complete, the project can begin filming in New Mexico later this summer.
Poots’ biggest works include appearing in “28 Days Later” and “Solitary Man” alongside Michael Douglas. Poots more recently appeared in “Chat Room,” which premiered at the Festival de Cannes this year, and just finished with production of “Jane Eyre.”
