First Image from the Set of Let Me In

The first image from the set of Matt Reeves’ Let The Right One In remake, now titled after the book that film was based upon, Let Me In, has slipped online in the form of a Twitpic that signifies the end of the first week of filming.

Reeves (Cloverfield) and young stars Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road) and Chloe Moretz ((500) Days of Summer) were among those on-set as filming commenced on the Hammer Films production at Albuquerque Studios. Filming will also take place in various other locations in New Mexico before returning to Albuquerque to wrap in January.

In the haunting and provocative Let Me In, an alienated 12-year-old boy (Smit-McPhee) befriends a mysterious young newcomer (Moretz) in his small New Mexico town and discovers an unconventional path to adulthood. The film is based on the bestselling vampire novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist and is an English-language remake of the highly acclaimed Swedish film.

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

    I think what Uncle Creepy said is the main point. I say, keep ’em coming, DC…

    I don’t know…this is one of those remakes that, in my mind, just can’t win. You cannot do better than the original, which already told it’s story damn near perfectly. So why try? I mean, you can make it DIFFERENTLY I suppose, but then why not just make your own damn movie?

    Know what the rub is? If we didn’t cover it we’d be hit with “How come you didn’t?” questions. We just can’t win. Either way, it’s a reminder to fans who are interested that they can follow the maker’s on Twitter.
