A&E Sucks The Blood Of 'Let The Right One In' And Will Turn It Into A TV Series

18 March 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

First, "Let The Right One In" was a fresh take on the vampire genre from Sweden that made impressive waves in 2008. Two years later, it was remade as the arguably better "Let Me In" (yep, I went there) by Matt Reeves, who trimmed the fat, and delivered a leaner, more effective take on the story of a relationship between a young boy and an ageless, bloodthirsty girl. And now, the property is headed to the small screen.  THR reports A&E has started development on a TV series based on the cult horror film. The good news is that the network seems dedicated to quality genre fare, already the home to the acclaimed "Bates Motel" and the recently launched "The Returned." A cause for pause might be the fact that Jeff Davis, the showrunner for MTV's tweenage "Teen Wolf," is working on the adaptation along with Brandon Boyce ("Apt Pupil, »

Let The Right One In To Be Adapted Again

18 March 2015 12:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

First it was a novel, then an acclaimed Swedish movie, then a surprisingly classy English-language remake, and then two separate stage productions. Now John Ajvide Lindqvist's Let The Right One In is heading for yet another adaptation, this time as a TV series for the American cable network A&E. Brandon Boyce (Apt Pupil, Wicker Park) will write the new take, with Jeff Davis (MTV's Teen Wolf) acting as showrunner. Both, along with Tomorrow Studios' Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, will serve as executive producers. So too will Hammer CEO Simon Oakes: Hammer retains the rights as the studio that brought us the Let Me In version in 2010.The story, in all forms so far, gives us a young boy called Oskar (Owen in the Hammer film) who befriends a local girl called Eli (or Abby). Eli lives in mysterious circumstances with her seemingly much older 'guardian', »

'Let the Right One In' TV Show Happening at A&E

17 March 2015 3:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A&E has prevailed in a bidding war with Showtime for the rights to John Ajvide Lindqvist's best-selling Swedish book Let the Right One In for a TV series adaptation. The novel was adapted into the 2008 foreign thriller of the same name by director Tomas Alfredson, which was remade into the English-language film Let Me In, starring Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Moretz. Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis is teaming with actor-writer Brandon Boyce to write the pilot script.

The original novel centers on a bullied young boy who becomes friends with a mysterious girl he eventually learns is a vampire. The series will take a slightly different approach, centering on the boy and female vampire, who live together in secret with the young girl's guardian. After a string of grisly murders rocks their sleepy Vermont town, a federal marshal comes to investigate, who has a mysterious past of his own. »

Let the Right One In TV Series Adaptation In Development at A&E

17 March 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Norman Bates and the resurrected people of The Returned could be getting more company in the growing horror community on A&E, as the network is developing a TV series adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist's world-renowned Sweden-set vampire novel, Let the Right One In.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that A&E is collaborating with Jeff Davis (Teen Wolf showrunner) and Brandon Boyce (who wrote the screenplay adaptation of Stephen King's Apt Pupil and also played Dr. Vandenburg in Teen Wolf) on the adaptation of the 2004 novel, Let the Right One In, aka Låt den rätte komma in, with both Davis and Boyce set to scribe the script.

A&E and Showtime were both looking to adapt the vampiric coming-of-age story, with the former outbidding the latter in the end and gaining the optioned story from Hammer Films Productions.

A&E is currently developing the series in-house along with Tomorrow Studios. »

A&E has emerged victorious in a bidding war with Showtime for the rights to adapt the 2004 Swedish novel Let The Right One In for the small screen, THR is reporting.

The novel, which was made into a Swedish feature by the same name in 2008 by Tomas Alfredson, was also adapted in 2010 by Hammer Films Production for the big screen for an English-language feature, which was directed by Matt Reeves and called Let Me In. Hammer Films recently optioned the adaptation rights to the novel, which A&E won, intending to produce the tv series in their own production studio, A+E, in collaboration with Tomorrow Studios.

The show has already landed a creative team as well, as it will be steered by Jeff Davis and Brandon Boyce. Davis is best known for creating what ultimately became the CBS series Criminal Minds, as well as being the creator and showrunner »
