Hammer Films to Remake ‘Let the Right One In’?!

We broke the news that JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot was attacking the remake to the Swedish vampire flick Let the Right One In a few weeks ago, only it looks as if things have changed. We received word this afternoon that Hammer Films has officially acquired the remake rights. No word on whether it’ll be a feature film or an online series (like Beyond the Rave), but we’ll keep you posted when we hear more. The original played at this past weekend’s Tribeca Film Festival and will hit DVD later this year from Magnet Releasing (Magnolia Pictures). In the film Oscar, an overlooked and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl who turns out to be a vampire.
