Exclusive: Producer Talks Let the Right One In Remake

Let Me In (click for larger image)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.”

Check out the entire Fred Malmberg interview when you have a moment. It’s truly interesting stuff.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    For those who are expecting it to be more faithful to the book:

    I’ve heard that Matt Reeves has said that the subplot concerning Eli being a castrated boy (hinted at in the original film) will not be in the remake.

    Besides that, the only real deviation from the book that wasn’t present in the film was Haxan. In the book, it was established that he was in fact a self-loathing pedophile. I’d be VERY surprised if this was in the film. Also, rather than be completely killed by Eli, he comes back as a ‘zombie’ (with a large erection no less) and tries to rape him/her. Again, something I really don’t think will happen in the film, at least not the way it was in the book.

    So there will likely be very few differences in the plot between the two, barring the possibility of course that they’ll deviate from the source material even more.

    Fuck this remake in the neck…hahaha.

    I’m gonna sit down with the original today sometime so I haven’t seen it but the words “he has a great sense of where the young audience is today” is such a bad omen. Fuck the young audience in the neck.

    “No matter how successful a subtitled film is in the U.S., the potential will always be minor compared to an English-language film.”

    Only because people like this guy insist on dumbing down material for the lowest common denominator. This remake is going to try and mine the same audience as Twilight…mark my words.

    Fuck this remake in the neck!
