Let Me In Graphic Novel Announced And Movie Synopsis

<em>Let Me In</em> Graphic Novel Announced And Movie Synopsis

Finally I can talk about this movie without tying it into comics via Chloe Moretz! Dark Horse comics are providing the tie in graphic novel and there is a plot synopsis for the upcoming movie..

Dark Horse Comics has announced that they will create a companion graphic novel for Let Me In, an american adaptation of Tomas Alfredson’s Swedish film Let the Right One In. The remake is directed by Matt Reeves(Cloverfield).

While the storyline of the companion graphic novel is being kept under wraps, Dark Horse Comics and writer Marc Andreyko (Manhunter, Predators) are working with Hammer to create a chilling and exciting comic that will incorporate some of the film’s characters and mythology with some fresh themes. The Let Me In graphic novel will be distributed in stores in conjunction with its theatrical release from Overture Films in October 2010.

I'm sure the GN will serve as a prequel, probably giving us Abby's horrific back story or something. The official plot synopsis for the movie has also been released. It really doesn't sound too much ..if at all different from the original movie, although it is just a brief outline here..

Let Me In, tells a terrifying tale about an alienated 12-year old boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloe Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Oscar® nominee Richard Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond.

I was against this remake when it was announced, but that cast is something else so I'm strangely looking forward to this. And if it sucks, well we have more fuel for our anti remake rants in the future!
