Let Me In’s Vampire Chloe Moretz Speaks
Before last weekend I had no idea who 12-year-old actress Chloe Moretz was. Having watched (500) Days of Summer on Saturday, I was impressed with her limited screen time and, while I’m still not sold on director Matt Reeves’ unnecessary remake of Let the Right One In, there’s no doubt that the film is going to be well cast.
MTV spoke to Moretz about the Americanized version of the story: “It's about a boy who lives in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Growing up, not many people like him, he's not popular. He's wimpy, kind of an outcast. Then this girl moves in, she's totally different. She doesn't wear shoes, wears raggedy clothes — it's sort of like "Romeo and Juliet" with vampires. She can't be with him because she's a vampire. But they fall in love; it's a really sweet coming-of-age story between a little boy and a little girl.”
Maybe I’m wrong, but I didn’t interpret Let the Right One In as being all that sweet – particularly its outcome. I’m not sure whether the filmmakers are changing this up or I interpreted the ending differently than this new crew.
