Let the Right One In TV Series Coming to TNT

Evil Dead, The Exorcist, The Mist, and The Lost Boys have all been tapped for TV series reboots. Now, the latest horror classic getting remade for television is the Swedish vampire drama Let the Right One In.

From today’s Press Release: “Let The Right One In fits in nicely with TNT’s new horror genre, as the cable net is working on a horror block from M. Night Shyamalan, which includes the hotly anticipated reinvented Tales From the Crypt. The pilot joins TNT’s growing pilot slate, which includes Monsters of God, Civil, and the dramedy Claws.”

Let the Right One In is based on the bestselling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, who also wrote the screenplay. The film was directed by Tomas Alfredson and stars Kåre Hedebrant, Lina Leandersson, and Per Ragnar.

Official Synopsis: When Oskar (Kåre Hedebrant), a sensitive, bullied 12-year-old boy living with his mother in suburban Sweden, meets his new neighbor, the mysterious and moody Eli (Lina Leandersson), they strike up a friendship. Initially reserved with each other, Oskar and Eli slowly form a close bond, but it soon becomes apparent that she is no ordinary young girl. Eventually, Eli shares her dark, macabre secret with Oskar, revealing her connection to a string of bloody local murders.

The film became an instant classic for its unique spin on vampire mythology, and the emotional coming-of-age story at its core. It was remade in America as Let Me In in 2010; that film was written and directed by Matt Reeves and stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Richard Jenkins.

No news yet on when Let the Right One In the TV series will begin production, or who has been attached to produce and star. Obviously, we’ll keep you posted as details emerge.
