New Images: David Tennant in ‘Fright Night’ Remake

Hitfix’s Motion/Captured blog has some early publicity images of David Tennant as Peter Vincent in the remake of the 1985 horror classic Fright Night, which is still filming. The former Doctor Who star plays a “Criss Angel-type Las Vegas magician” and appears in the film opposite Anton Yelchin as Charley and Colin Farrell as vampire Jerry Dandridge. David is serving up some Depp-tacular rock star sex appeal in these images; it’s quite a departure from his clean-cut role as the Tenth Doctor. Throw in Mr. Farrell as a vamp, and color me intrigued. What do you think?

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
