Hammer Films and Spitfire Pictures has acquired remake rights to Lat den ratte komma in, the Tomas Alfredson-directed Swedish film that last week won the feature prize at the Tribeca Film Festival. Deal is worth seven-figures if the film gets made.

Spitfire will produce the redo, and set a writer shortly to pen an English-language version that will play under the translated title of Let the Right One In.

Let the Right One In is a contemporary vampire tale about a 12-year-old boy who befriends a young female neighbor who moves to town.
