Let the Right One in was one of last year's most critically-acclaimed films and Cloverfield director Matt Reeves wasted no time in getting a remake set up. Los Angeles Times recently spoke with Reeves who talked about his upcoming remake, which is now entitled Let Me In.
I was just hooked," Reeves recalled recently. "I was so taken with the story and I had a very personal reaction. It reminded me a lot of my childhood, with the metaphor that the hard times of your pre-adolescent, early adolescent moment, that painful experience is a horror."
Reeves signed on to adapt and direct an American remake of the cult hit, now called "Let Me In," the English translation of John Ajvide Lindqvist's original novel. He recently finished a second draft of the script, currently set in Reagan-era Colorado, and is scouting locations, looking to maintain the original story's chilly, snow-swept environs. The film is scheduled for a fall 2010 theatrical release.
