2008’s Let the Right One In is on every must-see list for horror fans. Now, the Swedish film is getting a loose series adaptation from Showtime, Variety reports.
 
Genre staple Demián Birchir, who you’ll recognize from The Nun, The Grudge (2020), Alien Covenant, or Godzilla vs Kong, is set to star in the vampire series.
 
“The series centers on Mark (Bichir), a father and his 12-year-old daughter, Eleanor, whose lives were changed forever 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the minimal amount of human blood she needs to stay alive.”
 
The original film is an adaptation of the 2004 novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist who also penned the script. It was directed by Tomas Alfredson and tells the story of a bullied young boy who finds love and friendship with Eli, a strange little girl who is far more than she appears.
 
We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, here’s a look back at the trailer.
