In his latest article for us, DC Blogger Scott Allie of Dark Horse Comics spoke exclusively to the producer of the upcoming Let the Right One In remake, Fred Malmberg. During his interview Fred shed a bit of light on what to expect from the redux.
“The book is so great,” says Malmberg. “It is a fresh take on vampire mythology and it deserves a big audience. No matter how successful a subtitled film is in the U.S., the potential will always be minor compared to an English-language film.
In the U.S., Tomas Alfredson’s film is considered an art-house picture. Mostly because it is a foreign language film, but also because of his directing style; he is a very Nordic director with lingering shots, camera work, music and so forth,” Fred continues. “I love his work, as does everyone I have encountered in this process. I don’t think you should compare the two films, they are aiming at different audiences. Matt Reeves is a very, very talented director who comes from another angle, he has a great sense of where the young audience is today. I hope he will retell the tale so that it can capture a much wider audience yet remain faithful to the core concepts of Ajvide’s book.”
