Richard Jenkins cast in Let Me In

Kodi Smit-Mcphee and Chloe Moretz starring in the remake

It might not be a film that anyone thought needed remaking, but at least the American version of Let The Right One In will have a top notch cast, starting with character thesp Richard Jenkins.

Jenkins will play the guardian of a girl who just happens to be a vampire. And playing the blood-hunting kid? Chloe Moretz.

She might not be a big name right now, but she's about to become huge after Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass, in which she plays Hit Girl (below), arrives.

Opposite her as the awkward boy who strikes up a friendship with the dangerous youngster is Kodi Smit-McPhee -   Viggo Mortensen's son in The Road.

Cloverfield director Matt Reeves is the man charged with making sure it doesn't embarrass itself - not an easy job, given the original's pedigree…

Does this cast make the new film sound watchable? Speak!

      My anger over this remake is unfathomable. I hate it. Wrong cast, director, title, production company, everything about it is wrong and it should never be made! The original is an outstanding reminder of just how good contemporary cinema can be amongst the likes of Transformers and Terminator which crowd our cinemas. Why would you want to remake it?!?!

      A remake of such an outstanding film is obscene

      normally i hate remakes, especially ones where the original is perfection. but there are alot of people that just shy away from foreign language films, and would never in a million years be convinced to watch the swedish original (like the ring for instance, or REC)

      I don't normally get agitated about remakes....but for some reason I feel very protective of Let The Right One In. This is stereotypical braindead hollywood stealing ideas from elsewhere.The best we can hope for is that it turns people onto the original. Let Me In (at least its got a different title) is a pointless movie.
