Joins the network’s growing horror block

The Swedish coming-of-age story about a lonely boy and his vampiric neighbor that debuted to critical acclaim and instantaneous cult status, Let the Right One In, is getting a TV adaptation at TNT.

TNT made the announcement on Monday, adding that Teen Wolf and Criminal Minds creator Jeff Davis would be helming the project. The move from TNT comes just after MTV announced that Teen Wolf would have its last season this year, freeing up Davis to move onto other projects at other networks if he wanted.

Let the Right One In marks another horror project that TNT has ordered to fill its new block of mature, adult-oriented block of suspenseful programming. The network previously announced that it was working with horror master M. Night Shyamalan on creating a couple of horror shows, including a reimagined Tales From the Crypt series.

It’s unclear if TNT is planning to lean more into the classic horror aesthetic of the story, like Paramount’s Let Me In did, or focus more on the psychological aspects like the original did. Let the Right One In, a Swedish coming-of-age horror story about a young boy and his vampiric neighbor was remade with Chloe Grace-Moretz for an English-speaking audience back in 2010.

The pilot is not currently in development at this time, but Davis and his team are looking into hashing out the finer details soon.
