This is just FYI. It is not final.

A&E Developing TV Adaptation of Swedish Vampire Film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN

Fresh off the debut of its disastrous remake of French series The Returned, A&E has set its sights on pissing off Sweden. The network is developing an adaptation of vampire film Let the Right One In.

One of the best vampire movies of the past decade was Swedish film Let The Right One In, about a young bullied boy who meets and falls for a young girl who moves into his building, who isn’t really as young as she seems. (Pssst… she’s a vampire.) The film received critical acclaim upon its release and became and instant cult classic. It was remade in America (pretty faithfully, too) just two years later as Let Me In, and even became a successful stage play in the U.K. (The original title, and also the name of the book it was based on, was a reference to a song by Morrissey, giving it even more cool points.)
Now the A&E network is teaming with Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis and actor-screenwriter Brandon Boyce to adapt the movie into a television series. According to the official description, “the drama follows the boy and female vampire, who lives in secrecy with her mysterious guardian. When a series of strange murders pops up in their small Vermont town, it attracts the attention of a federal marshal with a mysterious past of his own.” That’s more or less the plot of the entire movie, so it’ll be interesting to see how they can stretch this out for eight to ten episodes. Between this show, Bates Motel and the remake of the French zombie drama The Returned, A&E is quickly finding its niche with horror based television.
The original novel has some more controversial elements that the film versions barely dealt with, mostly about the relationship with the young female vampire and her guardian (and in the case of Matt Reeve’s American adaptation, didn’t deal with at all), so it will be interesting to see if the TV show will “go there,” as they say. Television is more daring than movies these days after all. No date has been given for when A&E would like the show to premiere, but I expect we’ll be hearing a lot more about this one very soon.

That's interesting.  I think it could be worked into a very good series.

One thing though, It's almost guaranteed that the ages of the boy and girl will
be older, say seventeen or eighteen-ish.  I highly doubt that the series would
be about two thirteen-year-olds.

Let's see what happens

If the ages of the girl and boy are kept the same as in the two films then it could be an interesting TV series.

Maybe the series will start where the 2 movies stopped, the boy leaving on a train with a big 'heavy' suitcase, if so, they could still be 13, and it would be about him finding safe places for the 2 to hide.

If it is A&E then they will start from the beginning. Let's just hope it catches on and then they will continue the story from where the two movies stopped.

By the way, I downloaded the book and I'm reading it  Grin

I hope they keep the kids the right ages and not make them teens and romance it up.
