Right One remake talk

In his last directing effort, Matt Reeves smashed the hell out of Manhattan with a gigantic monster.

Now the CLOVERFIELD director wants to take his predilection for creatures down a few notches with a Americanization of the outstanding Swedish vampire movie LET THE RIGHT ONE IN.

Reeves tells the LA Times he was "hooked" by the original: "I was so taken with the story and I had a very personal reaction. It reminded me a lot of my childhood, with the metaphor that the hard times of your pre-adolescent, early adolescent moment, that painful experience is a horror."

Reeves has switched the location to Reagan-era Colorado, but how will he handle the touching yet touchy tale of a young outcast who falls for his new neighbor, an unusual but captivating girl who turns out to be a vampire?

Fans of the acclaimed original shouldn't worry too much if you can believe Bad Robot regular Reeves, who insists he's not going to go all TWILIGHT and drag the characters into their hormonal teens. "I have nothing but respect for the film. I'm so drawn to it for personal and not mercenary reasons, my feeling about it is if I didn't feel a personal connection and feel it could be its own film, I wouldn't be doing it. I hope people give us a chance."

Extra Tidbit: The remake will be titled LET ME IN, the English translation of John Ajvide Lindqvist's original novel.
