SCOOP: “Teen Wolf” creator adapts “Let The Right One In” swedish horror movie for TNT

LETTHE

The “Let The Right One In” series adaptation landed first at A&E back in 2015 after a bidding war with Showtime. It’s now in the running with other horror projects at TNT alongside the Tales From the Crypt series, dramedy Claws and anthology Time of Death

Based on the best-selling Swedish book by John Ajvide Lindqvist that was subsequently adapted into the critically acclaimed 2008 movie directed by Tomas Alfredson (also adapted in 2010 in English language), Let The Right One In is about Henry, a shy and lonely 16-year old kid who lives with his single mother in an apartment building in Vermont. Badly bulied by the bigger, meaner locals, he gets a new friend when Eli moves next door. She’s friendly, aloof, protective, wary and… she’s a vampire. She lives in secrecy with her mysterious guardian. When a series of strange murders pops up in the small town, it attracts the attention of a federal marshal with a mysterious past of his own…

Criminal Minds & Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis penned the pilot script. Marty Eldestein & Becky Clements from Tomorrow Studios serve as executive producers. A+E Networks is the studio. Shooting is expected to start mid-october in Vancouver.
