In case you haven’t heard, Tomas Alfredson’s tale of creepy child vampires is getting an American remake by non other than the Bad Robot boys, J.J. Abrams and his “Cloverfield” director, Matt Reeves. As the film gears up to shoot, the title has been changed from “Let the Right One In” to “Let Me In”, because, well, it’s two letters shorter, ain’t it?
The news comes from Bloody-Disgusting, which quotes Production Weekly:
Production Weekly reports that filming is scheduled to begins this May for the film that follows Oscar, an overlooked and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl who turns out to be a vampire.
I know she’s a little older now, but Dakota Fanning as the child vampire would fit like a glove. Either her, or one of the Olsen Twins. You can’t get any creepier than those two choices right there, folks.
Get your feel of child vampires, bullies, and possibly lots of blood in the snow (as in the original) come 2010, when Overture releases the movie.
