She may be no Amanda Bearse, but Heat Vision is reporting that British actress Imogen Poots has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Fright Night remake.

She is the final cast member signed to a roster that already includes Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Toni Collette. The plot is very similar to the 1985 film, with high school senior Charlie (Yelchin) convinced that his next-door neighbor (Colin Farrell) is a vampire. Poots will play Charlie's girlfriend who is part of the popular crowd and unaware that Charlie used to be a nerd. She eventually succumbs to the charms of the vampire next-door and is turned into a creature of the night.

The horror film begins shooting this summer in New Mexico.
