LET ME IN

About The Hammer
Originally founded in 1934, the legendary British horror film studio Hammer Films has delivered a hugely successful run of movies over the years including Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein and The Quatermass Xperiment. Purchased by Exclusive Media Group, the iconic and beloved UK film brand has been revamped for 2010 and returns with Let Me In, the first new film production from the studio in over 30 years.

Simon Oakes, vice chairman of Exclusive Media Group and President and CEO of Hammer Films said: "We're thrilled to be bringing Hammer back with a film as fantastic as Let Me In. The movie perfectly sums up the modern incarnation of Hammer Films as the home of ‘Smart Horror'—cool, stylish and provocative films which aim to push audiences out of their comfort zones.”

Let Me In is a re-imagining of Let the Right One In, the cutting edge Swedish vampire movie. The subject matter first came to the attention of Hammer during 2007 in the form of John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel Let the Right One In on which the Swedish film was based. Hammer then saw clips of the Swedish version of the film, then in postproduction, which cemented its interest. Simon Oakes comments: "The early noise on this picture was that it was a marvellous film. So we made sure we were one of the first parties to develop a relationship with the producers and from there Hammer managed to fight off fierce competition to acquire the rights. We felt from the start that this was a story that needed to be told to a wider audience and that's why we went after it.”

Hammer's next film will be The Resident featuring Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) and Hammer stalwart Christopher Lee (Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein), due for release in 2011. Hammer's next production, which will start shooting in September 2010, will be The Woman in Black - a screen adaptation of the iconic novel by Susan Hill, on which the hugely successful stage play is also based. Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter film series) has recently been announced to star. The script has been written by Jane Goldman (Kick Ass) and James Watkins (Eden Lake) will direct.
