There have already been two film adaptations of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel Let the Right One In but now there will be a television series based on the novel about a pre-adolescent vampire and her outcast best friend. It comes as a bit of a surprise that we are getting a third remake of the novel in less than a decade.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, A&E has acquired the television rights to the original novel. The channel won the rights after a bidding war with Showtime to produce and broadcast the forthcoming series.
“Let the Right One In” the series will be headed by Jeff Davis, who has previously worked on the series “Teen Wolf.”
The series is still in development so details are very scarce. There is no word on who the studio is eyeing to star or an anticipated release date.
