    Can't wait to see this re-make. I'd like to see Hugh Jackman as Jerry Dandrige and maybe Patrick Stewart as Peter Vincent.

    The original is brilliant. They better not screw it up. Malcolm McDowell, should play the role of Peter Vincent.

    I've seen one of his films, he might be good at this since this is a vampire film.
