David Tennant’s Fright-ful Night
For those of you who haven’t been following the creative works of Doctor number ten David Tennant since he left Doctor Who in Early 2010 (other work? OTHER WORK? Beyond Doctor Who? Does such a world exist?!), Tennant will be playing the part of Peter Vincent, a Las Vegas magician who is also a vampire hunter. This could well be the actor’s way into Hollywood as the film is looking rather excellent.
The teaser posters that have been released see the main characters posing with a catchy tagline overlaid on the picture, Tennant’s reads “He’s raising the stakes” and has the actor looking very cool and also a bit like he could be in Buffy the Vampire Slayer or its spin off Angel. Of course, his chosen accent sounds terribly familiar…
Tennant’s recent forays into America have not gone down too well, the actor having grabbed the lead role in US television series Rex Is Not Your Lawyer before it was dropped after the pilot.
However, the trailer for the remake of Fright Night looks brilliantly fun and Tennant will surely add his unique brand of charm and wit.
