Hammer & Spitfire Acquire Alfredson’s Tribeca Winner

ON

Hammer Films and Spitfire Pictures have acquired remake rights to Lat den ratte komma in, the Tomas Alfredson-directed Swedish film that last week won the feature prize at the Tribeca Film Festival, says Variety.

Spitfire will produce the remake, and set a writer shortly to pen an English-language version that will play under the translated title of Let the Right One In.

Simon Oakes, Guy East and Nigel Sinclair will produce. Alex Brunner and Tobin Armbrust will executive produce along with John Ptak, Philip Elway and Fredrik Malmberg.

Let the Right One In is a contemporary vampire tale about a 12-year-old boy who befriends a young female neighbor who moves to town.
