John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel became the incredible Swedish film let the right one in in 2008, which spawned the new American version Let me in just a couple of years later. The vampire tale is now heading to the small screen, with Term informing that Show time has ordered a pilot episode of a potential series with Demián Bichir (The hole) attached to the star.
Andrew Hinderaker (Far) is the showrunner, with Since the man (Homeland) steer.
The project comes from Tomorrow Studios, who have been trying to get a “Let the Right One In” series off the ground for the past several years, previously established on A&E and TNT.
Deadline details, “The series centers on a father, Mark (Bichir) and his 12-year-old daughter whose lives were forever changed 10 years earlier when she became a vampire. Locked up at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed life, able to go out alone at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the minimum amount of human blood she needs to stay alive. “
“The series is both a love letter to the original film and a story entirely ours,” Hinderaker said. “And casting a true artist like Demián embodies our audacious aspiration to be one of the scariest shows on television and one of the most moving.”
