Overture Films just sent over this first picture from the upcoming Let the Right One In remake, Let Me In. Here’s Chloe Moretz (Hit Girl from Kick-Ass) as “Abby” in all her vampiric glory, presumably repeating the film’s title.

It’s pretty obvious that they’re going to milk her newfound fame for all it’s worth with this one.

Let Me In is
set for an October 1st release. It will be interesting to see what, if
anything, they retain from the original novel that wasn’t included in
the first adaptation. 

On a personal note, I’m about two thirds of the way through the novel myself and am really enjoying it. For fans of the film (and really, why wouldn’t you love this utterly beautiful film?) it’s interesting to see more backstory for Eli, Oskar and Hakan. The story takes a few twists and turns that the film doesn’t, although most of the material Tomas Alfredson passed on was done for a reason. This is a rare case where the adaptation is superior to the source material.

We’ll just have to see how the remake stacks up.
