Toni Collette has also joined the movie, which will star Anton Yelchin ("Star Trek") as a teenager who can't get anyone to believe that his new neighbor is a vampire. Said neighbor will be played by Farrell ("In Bruges," "Crazy Heart"), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Farrell and Yelchin are taking on roles played by Chris Sarandon and William Ragsdale in the original.

Emmy winner Collette ("United States of Tara"), meanwhile, will play Yelchin's mom.

Craig Gillespie, who's helmed several "Tara" episodes as well as "Lars and the Real Girl" and "Mr. Woodcock," is set to direct.
