Maybe this one just isn’t meant to be.
Last we heard, pre-production had begun on TNT’s pilot episode of a TV series based on John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Let the Right One In, and all seemed to be moving along smoothly. Jeff Davis was the showrunner attached to the project, and young actors Kristine Froseth and Ben Wadsworth had been cast in the lead roles. What’s the latest? Well, TNT just pulled the plug.
Deadline reports tonight that the network is not proceeding with the drama series’ pilot order. The site also notes that production had not yet begun on the pilot, ordered last August.
But all hope isn’t lost. Tomorrow Studios is reportedly shopping the series around to other networks in either “its current iteration or as a potential redo of the concept.”
Let the Right One In, originally set up at A&E, is about a young boy, long tormented by his classmates, who finds solace in a friendship with a female vampire who appears to be near his age. The vampire settles into the boy’s small Vermont town with her mysterious caretaker, just as a series of bizarre murders begins attracting the attention of law enforcement.
