Imogen Poots Heads To Fright Night

Imogen Poots has been cast as the female lead role in 'Fright Night'.

The British actress - best known for her parts in '28 Weeks Later' and most recently, 'Solitary Man' - will play the girlfriend of 'Star Trek' actor Anton Yelchin in the reimagining of the 1985 movie classic.

She is the latest in a number of names announced in the film - Toni Collette, David Tennant and Colin Farrell have also been confirmed for roles.

Poots' character will be part of a "popular crowd" who are unaware of Yelchin's "nerdy" past, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog.

The movie tells the tale of a teenager (Yelchin) who becomes convinced his new neighbour (Farrell) is a blood-sucking vampire.

'Lars and the Real Girl' filmmaker Craig Gillespie - well known for his work in TV commercials - is due to direct the movie, due for release in 2011.

Imogen is currently working on a number of film projects, including horror thriller 'Hello Darkness' alongside Dominic Cooper and Julie Christie.
