By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Fantastic Fest scored a solid opener for its September event, announcing this afternoon that Matt Reeves’ remake, “Let Me In,” will launch the multi-day celebration on Thursday, Sept. 23. It will be the film’s U.S. premiere.
Chloe Moretz (“Kick Ass”) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (“The Road”) star in the modern-day vampire film about a young boy who befriends a special girl.
“We are truly honored that Fantastic Fest has chosen to open their festival with the U.S. premiere of ‘Let Me In.’ It is incredibly exciting to be able to present the film to an audience who I know are just as passionate about John Ajvide Linqvist’s story as I am,” said Reeves.
“Fantastic Fest has been following the development of this movie with rabid interest and we couldn’t be more excited to share what Matt Reeves has up his sleeve in adapting this incredible story. We anticipate that this will solidify his place as a visionary genre artist,” said Fantastic Fest co-founder Tim League.
