A&E is developing a vampire drama after muscling out a rival in a bidding war. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that A&E beat out Showtime for the rights to the Swedish vampire drama “Let the Right One In.”
“Teen Wolf” showrunner Jeff Davis and actor and screenwriter Brandon Boyce are adapting the story, THR reports.
“A&E landed the story, about a bullied teen boy who befriends a young female vampire — based on the best-selling Swedish book by John Ajvide Lindqvist that was subsequently adapted into the critically acclaimed 2008 movie directed by Tomas Alfredson — following a bidding war with Showtime,” THR reports.
A+E Studios and Marty Adelstein’s and Becky Clements’ Tomorrow Studios are producing.
