Horror icon Tom Holland shared something interesting on Twitter this weekend, “the Fright Night copyrights come back to papa” in 2019. That’s all thanks to the Copyright Act of 1976 which allows the US Congress to make it possible for artist to reclaim their licensed work after a period of 35 years. Back in 1984 Holland, who wrote and directed ‘Fright Night’, had to sell the rights to get the film made. And boy are we glad it got made!

So, what does all this mean? Holland tweeted another message saying, “Oh the things I’m going to do,” he then went on to reveal more in a series of tweets including the fact that he is “almost finished with Fright Night 3 the novel”, and that “many things grow from there.” As for the plot, he didn’t say but he did drop a hint, “Not sure who lives next door now, but I bet he has fangs…”
It sounds like there’s a movie brewing. It would be killer to see a sequel from the master himself! Even if we only get the ‘Fright Night 3’ book, we’ll still be happy, at least the story would continue.
If you want to learn more about Tom Holland and ‘Fright Night’, we strongly recommend that you check out the documentary ‘You’re So Cool Brewster!: The Story of Fright Night‘ which is now out on Blu-ray and DVD.
