One person who’s not happy with director Matt Reeves (“Cloverfield”) and his upcoming remake of Swedish vampire flick “Let the Right One In” is the original helmer himself Tomas Alfredson.
In an interview with MovieZine, Alfredson says “Remakes should be made of movies that aren’t very good, that gives you the chance to fix whatever has gone wrong. I’m very proud of my movie and think it’s great, but the Americans might be of another opinion. The saddest thing for me would be to see that beautiful story made into something mainstream.”
He goes on to say “I don’t like to whine, but of course – if you’d spent years on painting a picture, you’d hate to hear buzz about a copy even before your version…Why can’t you just read the subtitles.”
