Director Matt Reeves (“Cloverfield”) has revealed to The Los Angeles Times a few more details about the upcoming American remake of the highly acclaimed Swedish horror film “Let the Right One In”.
Reeves tells the paper he’s completed a second script draft for the project which moves the action to early 80’s Colorado. Locations will soon be scouted to match the original’s snow-drenched icy environment.
As previously reported, the film is officially being called “Let Me In” which is a closer English translation of the title of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s original novel.
The 2008 original centered around Oscar, an overlooked and bullied young boy who finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl who turns out to be a vampire.
Reeves also says there’s no plans to increase the age of the lead stars in order to cash in on a “Twilight”-style human/vampire teen romance angle.
