TNT orders pilot for Let the Right One In TV series

30 August 2016 6:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist’s bestselling vampire novel Let the Right One In is heading to the small screen, with TNT placing a pilot order for a potential TV series.

Let the Right One In combines elements of horror, revenge thriller, and adolescent romance into an unforgettable and truly unsettling tale,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT (via EW). “This novel is a watershed of rich storytelling, making it an abundant source from which [executive producers Jeff Davis, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, and Simon Oakes] will bring to life in this all-new adaptation.”

Let the Right One In follows a lonely young boy who befriends a vampire girl who moves into his neighborhood at the same time as a series of strange murders begin occurring. It was previously adapted for the big screen in 2008 by director Tomas Alfredson, as well as Matt Reeves’ 2010 American remake Let Me In.

Let The Right One In To Get Pilot For TV Series On TNT

29 August 2016 4:06 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

According to Variety, TNT has ordered a pilot episode for the series Let the Right One In, an adaptation of the Swedish novel of the same name from author John Ajvide Lindqvist. The adaptation is currently being developed by Teen Wolf and Criminal Minds creator, Jeff Davis, who also penned the script for the pilot.

Let the Right One In is no stranger to adaptations. The book was first adapted into its native language by director Tomas Alfredson, a filmmaker who also directed the 2011 film Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy. Two years later, the book was then adapted into an English-language film Let Me In from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves. Both films were rather well-made, and there's no denying the fact that the source material is pretty strong as well.

This move from TNT is a strange one, as I can't see how there's enough »

Let The Right One In Lands Pilot Order At TNT

29 August 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You may recall a time when we brought you news that Tomorrow Studios, undeterred by Matt Reeves’ own Hollywood remake, had snapped up rights to Let The Right One In, John Ajvide Lindqvist’s beloved horror romance novel.

That was almost a full year ago at this stage, but Deadline brings word that the small-screen project has now exploded into life, landing a pilot order at TNT. Criminal Minds and Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis remains attached at the helm of this new take, one that is aiming to tap into the core tents of Lindqvist’s acclaimed vampire love story. First published ten years ago, it’s a novel that is held in high regard for its ability to “combine elements of horror, revenge thriller and adolescent romance into an unforgettable and truly unsettling tale.”

Lindqvist later adapted Let The Right One In for Tomas Alfredson’s Swedish movie of the same name, »

Let the Right One In, the 2004 novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist that eventually became the great 2008 film directed by Tomas Alfredson, is now (potentially) coming to television. As reported by Deadline, TNT has ordered a pilot episode for a prospective small-screen series created by Jeff Davis (Teen WolfCriminal Minds), which was previously in development at A&E.  Let the Right One In centers on a bullied young boy named Oskar who forms a friendship with Eli, a young girl who just so happens to be a centuries-old vampire and whose appearance alongside an older caretaker coincides with a bizarre series of murders. The Swedish film, which was followed by an American version directed by Matt Reeves two years later, is considered by many to be the greatest horror film of the 21st century. Evidence of this comes from the film's placement on HitFix's very own "100 greatest horror »

‘The Snowman,’ ‘Downsizing’ Tap Into Norwegian Film Incentives

24 August 2016 6:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Swedish director Tomas Alfredson’s U.K.-U.S. production of “The Snowman,” starring Michael Fassbender, and “Downsizing” from U.S. helmer Alexander Payne directly spent $24 million in Norway during their Norwegian location shoots. They were the first two international features shot in Norway to receive funding from the new state incentive program to attract foreign film and TV productions.

According to a preliminary report by Norway’s Olsberg Spi Consultancy, which was published Aug. 22 at a production seminar during the 44th Norwegian Intl. Film Festival in Haugesund, the two productions also created 142 full-time equivalent jobs with a total of $12.7 million payroll costs (generating $4 millon tax income for the state).

Financial consultant Andrew Barnes, of Olsberg Spi, presented the report, which was based on the budgets of the two films, recommending the incentive scheme be expanded from $5.5 million in the first year started March 1, 2016, to cover up to four international productions. »

Mulholland Drive Tops BBC's 100 Best Movies of the 21st Century List

23 August 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The modern movie landscape can make some people feel like the best days of film are behind us. With remakes, reboots and adaptations very abundant, and original movies seemingly not raking it in at the box office, that is an understandable sentiment. But the BBC felt like there are a lot of recent movies worth celebrating, and that is why they set out to make a list of the 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The list they came up with is nothing if not interesting, and it is definitely a reminder that there are a lot of great movies that have been made in the last 16 years.

BBC published the list on Tuesday morning, after taking months to put it all together. In order to come up with this list, they used nearly 200 critics from both print and online publications, as well as academics and curators. The contributors that were used spanned the globe, »

The 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century: BBC Polls Critics From Around The Globe

23 August 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last year, the BBC polled a bunch of critics to determine the 100 greatest American films of all time and only six films released after 2000 placed at all. This year, the BBC decided to determine the “new classics,” films from the past 16 years that will likely stand the test of time, so they polled critics from around the globe for their picks of the 100 greatest films of the 21st Century so far. David Lynch’s “Mulholland Dr.” tops the list, Wong Kar-Wai’s “In The Mood For Love” places second, and Paul Thomas Anderson and the Coen Brothers both have 2 films in the top 25. See the full results below.

Mullholland Drive tops critics' list of best 21st century films

23 August 2016 2:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 23, 2016

A critics' survey puts Mullholland Drive at the top of the list of the best films since 2000. Did yours make the cut?

Movie critics love Linklater, Studio Ghibli, the Coens and the surrealist stylings of David Lynch. At least, that's if a newly-published list of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century is anything to go by.

BBC Culture commissioned the poll, which took in responses from 177 film critics from all over the world. As a result, the top 100 includes an eclectic mix of the mainstream to independent movies, from dramas to sci-fi and off-beat comedies. Feew would be surprised to see things like Paolo Sorrentino's handsome Italian confection The Great Beauty propping up the lower end of the list, or that such acclaimed directors as Wes Anderson or the aforementioned Coens feature heavily. 

What is pleasing to see, though, is how much good genre stuff has made the cut, »

Although we’re only about 16% into the 21st century thus far, the thousands of films that have been released have provided a worthy selection to reflect on the cinematic offerings as they stand. We’ve chimed in with our favorite animations, comedies, sci-fi films, and have more to come, and now a new critics’ poll that we’ve taken part in has tallied up the 21st century’s 100 greatest films overall.

The BBC has polled 177 critics from around the world, resulting in a variety of selections, led by David Lynch‘s Mulholland Drive. Also in the top 10 was Wong Kar-wai‘s In the Mood For Love and Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life, which made my personal ballot (seen at the bottom of the page).

In terms of the years with the most selections, 2012 and 2013 each had 9, while Wes Anderson, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Christopher Nolan, the Coens, Michael Haneke, and »
