'Cloverfield' helmer traces Swedish tale

24 September 2008 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

"Cloverfield" director Matt Reeves has signed to write and direct the horror remake "Let the Right One In" for Overture Films and Hammer Films.

The Swedish horror film, "Lat den ratte komma in," about a bullied boy whose desire for revenge becomes intertwined with his growing love for a girl who happens to be a vampire, began showing at festivals at the beginning of the year. Hammer Films picked up the remake rights in May after the film won the best narrative feature award at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The original film's source material is a bestselling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist.

"I was immediately taken by both the novel and the Swedish film of 'Let the Right One In,' which are just so unique," Reeves said. "I found them not only terrifying but incredibly moving, and I am very excited about adapting them into an American context."
