John Ajvide Lindqvist to Let the Dead Ones In in Handling the Undead
Let the Right One In has been heralded as a modern classic vampire tale, and it deserves every bit of that praise. Needless to say we've all been eagerly awaiting author John Ajvide Lindqvist's return to our genre, and it has finally come with the living dead in tow!
According to The LA Times Lindqvist, the author of the novel on which vampire hit Let the Right One In was based (itself remade as the Chloe Moretz movie Let Me In), has another book; this one is about zombies and is called Handling the Undead. The rights will soon be shopped to U.S. studios.
The book begins in Stockholm, where the power grid has gone crazy. In the morgue and in cemeteries, the recently deceased are waking up. One grandfather is alight with hope that his grandson will be returned, but one husband is aghast at what his adored wife has become.
Look for more on the book and the feature film soon. Really soon.
