SHOWTIME ORDERS LET THE RIGHT ONE IN PILOT

After years in development, Deadline is reporting that there is a small screen version of Let The Right One In heading to Showtime.

Based on bestselling the John Ajvide Lindqvist novel, it spawned the Swedish film Let The Right One In, and the American remake in 2008 Let Me In with Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Grace Moretz.

The series centers on a father, Mark (Demián Bichir) and his 12-year-old daughter whose lives were changed forever 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the minimal amount of human blood she needs to stay alive.”

“The series is both a love letter to the original film, and a story entirely our own,” said showrunner Andrew Hinderaker (Away). “And casting a true artist like Demián epitomizes our bold aspiration to be one of the most terrifying shows on TV, and one of the most moving.”

I’m interested in seeing how they can make this idea work as a series, and how they plan to keep this girl the same age if it’s granted multiple seasons, because vampires never age. While there’s not much to go on, I’m guessing this will be a limited series?

I’m a fan of Demián as an actor, so I’ll check the series out once it’s given the series green light.
