In an interview with The Herald-Sun (in their HIT lift-out), young actor Kodi Smit Mc-Phee (“Romulus, My Father”, the upcoming “The Road”) reveals that he’s up for a role in the remake of “Let the Right One In”.
Though the deal isn’t done yet, the actor – currently filming the Aussie comedy “Love and Mortar” with ‘Chuck’ star Yvonne Strahovski – says it’s looking good.
Matt Reeves (“Cloverfield”) will direct “Let Me In”, inspired by the Swedish horror pic about a bullied 12-year-old boy who develops a friendship with a vampire child in Blackeberg, a suburb of Stockholm, in the early 1980s.
Due to the original film’s initial success at various film festivals, the rights for an English-language remake of the film sold before the film had its theatrical release.
The redo is scheduled to hit theaters next year.
