Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist’s bestselling vampire novel Let the Right One In is heading to the small screen, with TNT placing a pilot order for a potential TV series.
“Let the Right One In combines elements of horror, revenge thriller, and adolescent romance into an unforgettable and truly unsettling tale,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT (via EW). “This novel is a watershed of rich storytelling, making it an abundant source from which [executive producers Jeff Davis, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, and Simon Oakes] will bring to life in this all-new adaptation.”
Let the Right One In follows a lonely young boy who befriends a vampire girl who moves into his neighborhood at the same time as a series of strange murders begin occurring. It was previously adapted for the big screen in 2008 by director Tomas Alfredson, as well as Matt Reeves’ 2010 American remake Let Me In.
