Richard Jenkins joins Right One

Burn After Reading star joins Let the Right One In remake

Richard Jenkins (Burn After Reading) has been tapped to headline “Let Me In,” the remake of the arty Swedish vampire pic “Let the Right One In.”

The coming-of-age horror tale revolves around the relationship between a preteen boy and a girl who just moved to the neighborhood and happens to be a vampire.

Smit-McPhee and Moretz play the kids, while Jenkins is the girl’s vampire-hunting guardian.

Production begins later this yar in New Mexico with Matt Reeves (“Cloverfield”) helming.
