Cloverfield director Matt Reeves, has signed to direct a remake of the recent Swedish vampire movie, Let the Right One In. Reeves, a graduate of the Paul Greengrass School of Cinematography, has been linked to an unnecessary prequel/sequel to his successful monster movie, but has thankfully placed that on the back burner for now. He’s currently in production on Invisible Woman, a thriller about a woman who is in fact not invisible.
Let the Right One In is less a traditional vampire thriller than it is a calm and deliberate story about loneliness and friendship that happens to include vampires. /Film’s Peter Sciretta says “Imagine a coming of age movie like Stand By Me, but one of the characters just happens to need blood to live.” I can’t wait for the swedish fish-eating scene with the vomiting vampires. The film receives limited theatrical release here in the US starting 10/24 and the DVD is due next March. Check out the creepily effective trailer below.
