Euros Lyn, one of the key directors who helped revisualise Doctor Who in the early years of the revived show (he worked on 12 episodes during the Eccleston and Tennant years), is set to direct the pilot of TNT’s Let The Right One In.
The series is based on the cult vampire novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist, which inspired both the brilliant Swedish film Let The Right One In (2008) and the perfectly decent American remake Let Me In (2010).
In the new TV version, which has MTV’s Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis as showrunner, a young boy, Henry, who is being tormented by his classmates, finds solace in a friendship with a charismatic vampire, Eli (Kristine Froseth), who appears to be near his age. Thin and pale, Eli’s actual age is unknown. Lonely and friendless (for obvious reasons), Eli lands in an apartment building in Vermont, and soon begins a strange friendship with Henry, an equally lonely 16-year-old boy who has no idea what kind of creature he’s dealing with.
Lyn has also recently worked on Netflix’s Daredevil as well as Happy Valley, Broadchurch and Cucumber in the UK.
