'Kick-Ass' and 'The Road' stars join Richard Jenkins for 'Let Me In'
With filming scheduled to begin next month in New Mexico, Overture Films and Hammer Films announced the cast for the English-language remake of the critically acclaimed Swedish film "Let the Right One In."
Based on the novel "Lat den Ratte Komma In," the new version still centers on the intriguing story of a young boy who meets a young girl in his neighborhood who only comes out at night. Director Matt Reeves ("Cloverfield," the pilot for "Felicity") has recruited Kodi Smit-McPhee to play the boy Owen and Chloe Moretz to play the blood sucking Abby. Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins will play the older man known as Hakan in the original Swedish picture.
Aussie Smit-McPhee will come to audiences attention in November as he stars alongside Viggo Mortensen in "The Road" which has gotten mixed reviews since debuting at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals.
12-year-old Atlanta native Chole Moretz plays Hit Girl in Matthew Vaughn's upcoming adaptation of "Kick-Ass" and has appeared in "500 Days of Summer" and the series "Dirty Sexy Money."
A longtime Hollywood character actor, Jenkins career took off in the Overture acquired "The Visitor" for which he was nominated for an Oscar and a Screen Actor's Guild award. He has a very busy slate with roles in the upcoming films "The Cabin in the Woods," the Channing Tatum romance "Dear John," Johnny Depp's "The Rum Diary" and Ryan Murphy's "Eat, Pray, Love" with Julia Roberts.
In a statement released by the studios, Reeves says, "Kodi, Chloe, and Richard are my absolute dream cast. I couldn't be more excited to be working with them."
The studio has not committed to a release date for the genre thriller at this time.
