According to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heat Vision Blog, David Tennant (Doctor Who, pictured left) will play the overmatched vampire expert portrayed in the original by Roddy McDowall, and McLovin himself (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) is on board as Evil Ed, the nerdy friend who finds himself vulnerable to the neighborhood blood-sucker. With paper-boy faced Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) set to star as the paranoid hero, and Colin Farrell cast as the neck-biter next door, director Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) has a remake that just might not suck.

Do you like this casting as much as I do?
