NEAR DARK NEWS:

Henriksen Wants In on 'Near Dark' Remake, Talks About 'Pumpkinhead' Role

October 19, 2006 -- Lance Henriksen wants a role in the upcoming "Near Dark" remake. He was the star of the original now-classic and arguably the best vampire film of the past several decades. He told Sci Fi Wire of the remake (which he just learned about from the interview): "Oh, man, I hadn't heard that. It's one of my favorites, Near Dark. If they were smart, what they would do is get a hold of Bill Paxton, Jenette Goldstein and me, and do something that starts as a prequel to Near Dark. They need to have a conversation with us, because, man, Billy Paxton and I have been talking about this, about what we would do, if we did a prequel. And really great stuff came up. So it would be very wise of them to connect us."

Meanwhile, Henriksen also spoke with Dread Central about "Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes" and "Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud." "These films take place 20 years after the events of the first film. Itís in the same town; some of those places donít ever change, which [helped me find the character]. Iím playing a ghost, so it was fun." he explained. "You donít really play a ghost you know; there are a lot of things to play when youíre playing a ghost but itís more about warning somebody. Itís a good ghost; heís the morality warning of the film."
