I hadn’t heard of Tomas Alfredson’s upcoming film LÃƒÂ¥t den rÃƒÂ¤tte komma in (Let The Right One In), but apparently it has been a hit on the festival circuit and was recently picked up by Magnet Releasing, a subdivision of Magnolia Pictures, to be distributed in the U.S. This is a Swedish film based on the novel by John Ajvide Linqvist (who also wrote the script), and tells of a 12 year old boy who falls in love with a young girl who moves in next door. The bad news is, she ends up being a vampire!
There’s been no word on when it might hit theatres here, but the buzz has been so strong that there is already interest in an English-language remake. And according to Bloody Disgusting, the outfit that has been pursuing the remake rights is none other than Bad Robot, J.J. Abrams’ production company! Who knows if Abrams himself is interested in directing, but it sounds like an intriguing story to be sure, and we all know that vampire flicks never go out of style. Check out the Swedish trailer for the movie below.
