It’s already been remade once and it’s about to be remade again. The Swedish vampire drama Let The Right One In began life as an extraordinary novel penned by John Ajvide Lindqvist and in 2008 was brought to film by director Tomas Alfredson to much critical acclaim.
In 2010 Matt Reeves shot an American version, entitled Let Me In, which starred Chloe Grace Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee and it did pretty damn well for itself as well. Only one place left to conquer and that’s TV and A&E is up to the challenge, with Jeff Davis and Brandon Boyce from MTV’s Teen Wolf handling the writing duties.
A&E had been in a bit of a battle over the rights to bring it to the small screen with Showtime, but ultimately they won out and actually has already begun to gear up development. What is still a bit unclear (at least to me) is what A&E is looking to bring to this already thrice told tale. Don’t know if we are looking at a mini-series or just a ‘made for TV’ flick but I’m sure as development progresses the facts will be revealed. Lots more on this one soon so watch for updates!
