Imogen Poots Heads To Fright Night
British actress Imogen Poots is to play the female lead character in the 2011 reimagining of '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.
