Let the Right One In Remake Clarification

Let the Right One In (click for larger image)Well, this might end up being a bit embarrassing for Production Weekly. Last week, they reported that the US remake for Let the Right One In was getting a title overhaul and being called Let Me In and that shooting was set to start in Canada this May. I guess they may have spoken too soon.

Turns out, it was reported today over Bloody Disgusting that Overture Films clarified what the official news is with the status of their remake with Hammer Films. Overture said that the name has not been changed and that no shooting schedule has been determined yet, and they wouldn’t expect it to start in May since it doesn’t make much sense to film a story set in the winter during the late spring/summer season.

The one thing that remains factual so far is that Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) will be helming the movie.

Once official news becomes available on the US version of Let the Right One In, we’ll make sure to keep you posted.

    This remake can suck my cock. It’s insulting to touch such a perfect piece of filmmaking/storytelling.

    Oh, I’ll go see it…and I’m going to buy a brand new cell phone to talk on through the film.

      So let me get this straight. You are such an idiot, a looser , and a jerk that not only are you going to buy a new cellphone but you are going to pay $7+ or whatever and go sit in the theatre just to annoy people? I hope you get permanently banned from that theatre and every other one. After that I hope someone beats the crap out of you for having no respect for other people. I think its incredibly stupid that they are remaking this movie, especially so soon. But your attitude is just ignorant.

    Or they could, you know, not remake it at all.
