The Los Angeles Times reports that Craig Gillespie is in final negotiations to direct the remake of the 1985 horror film, which has been in development for some time at DreamWorks. The project has had several false starts over the years, with the studio being unable to find the right director for the vampire yarn.

Gillespie's directing credits include 'Lars and the Real Girl,' starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Mortimer, and 'The Woodcock,' starring Billy Bob Thornton. He also has a relationship with DreamWorks head honcho Steven Spielberg via 'The United States of Tara,' the Showtime series on which Gillespie has served as producer and director.

'Fright Night' was a sleeper hit back in 1985, blending horror and a self-aware meta level of comedy that trumped films like 'Wes Craven's New Nightmare' and 'Scream' by a decade. The film starred William Ragsdale as Charlie Brewster, a teenage horror fan who ends up living his own horror movie when a vampire (Chris Sarandon) moves in next door.
