FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DARK HORSE COMICS AND EXCLUSIVE’S HAMMER FILMS KICK OFF EXCITING NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH “LET ME IN”
CHICAGO, IL (April 15, 2010) – Dark Horse Comics and Exclusive Media Group’s Hammer Films announced today they are partnering to create a series of co-branded original graphic novels and comic books. Their first collaboration will be inspired by Hammer Films’ upcoming suspense thriller Let Me In. The film, based on the 2008 widely acclaimed Tomas Alfredson directed Swedish film Lat den ratte komma in a.k.a. Let the Right One In, is being produced by the legendary British film brand Hammer Films, and written and 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.
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.
