Jaime Murray, best remembered as ‘Lila’ on the second season of TV’s “Dexter”, will play the sharp-toothed villain of the “Fright Night” sequel.
This is a sequel to the 2011 remake (of the 1985 film).
The direct-to-DVD release will feature quite a few of the same characters, namely Charlie, Evil Ed and Peter Vincent, but it’s not expected that Anton Yelchin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse or David Tennant will reprise their roles.
Bloody Disgusting, reporting on Murray’s involvement, offered up the following synopsis of the Eduardo Rodriguez directed film.
“When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with his horror obsessed friend “Evil” Ed and ex-girlfriend Amy in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show “Fright Night,” to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, who’s blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.”
Colin Farrell played the villain in the previous film.
