Originally a novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist, the story was scripted into the incredible 2008 Swedish film form director Tomas Alfredson, remade by Matt Reeves into the well-received American movie LET ME IN and brought to the stage by Jack Thorne and the National Theatre of Scotland, a production which just finished a run at Brooklyn's St. Ann's Warehouse. Now, channel A&E, currently airing PSYCHO series BATES MOTEL and the remake of the French THE RETURNED is bringing the story of a young boy and his vampire neighbor to series.

THR reports TEEN WOLF showrunner Jeff Davis and screenwriter Brandon Boyce will adapt the novel/film for the channel.

A few months ago came word that TEEN WOLF show runner Jeff Davis was set to take on that role for a TV series adaptation of the recent horror classic LET THE RIGHT ONE IN for A&E.

Appearing on Artist Alley, Davis says the recent renewal of MTV's TEEN WOLF for a sixth season has thrown a bit of a spanner in the works as he originally had no intention of taking on another show while TEEN WOLF was still running:

"I have to be honest, I thought season 5 was it. I thought we were ending... I have no idea what's going to happen with season six. Now I have the challenge of doing both, if we're that lucky on LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, to see it go to series. We're still in the script stage."

Davis confirms he does plan to take elements from the original Swedish novel and make them darker. He was also asked about he plans to expand on the work in a way that will lend the material to a TV series:

"[It] was only until I read the book. The book has details in it, and a broader story that I said to myself, 'okay, now I can see the series.' And I brought in another writer, a friend of mine, Brandon Boyce, who actually plays a doctor on [TEEN WOLF, and we started pitching around ideas, and then we went off and sold it.

The pilot will have elements from the book, but tell a new, different story. It will be, if the series goes forward, a whole lot darker. I never imagined myself doing a vampire show, actually, but something about this one kind of captured me. I don't know how involved with the show I'll be if it does move forward, but we'll see."

TNT has ordered a pilot for a TV series based on John Ajvide Lindqvist's vampire novel which was previous adapted into the Swedish film of the same name, and the U.S. film LET ME IN.

TEEN WOLF creator Jeff Davis is developing the project, an eerie drama about a young boy, long tormented by his classmates, who finds solace in a friendship with a charismatic female vampire who appears to be near his age. The vampire settles into the boy's small Vermont town with her mysterious caretaker as a series of bizarre murders begins attracting the attention of law enforcement.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I didn't like the unnecessary remake since Let the Right One In is one of my favourite movies. It's so hauntingly beautiful.

Yes but I found the remake to be interesting. Still I read that both films are different from the novel.
