Ramin Djawadi has been hired to score the upcoming horror film Fright Night. The film is remake of the comedy-horror picture about a teenager who discovers his new next-door neighbor is a vampire. The movie is directed by Craig Gillespie, who has previously worked with composers David Torn on Lars and the Real Girl and Theodore Shapiro on Mr. Woodcock. Fright Night stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Please, David Tennant and Toni Collette. Tom Holland’s original 1985 film featured a score by Brad Fiedel. Djawadi himself is no stranger to horror films, having previously scored 2009’s The Unborn. Fright Night is produced by Dreamworks Pictures and will be released by Walt Disney Pictures on August 19, 2011.
As previously reported, Djawadi also has the remake of Red Dawn coming up, which he finished scoring last year. The movie is still awaiting a release date. Djawadi also worked on the TV show Breakout Kings. A&E recently set a March 13, 2011 premiere date for the Matt Olmstead- and Nick Santaro-produced show.
