Original director is pissed at vampire remake

Let The Right One In (original title Låt Den Rätte Komma In), a Swedish vampire film winner of every award it’s been nominated for (for now at least), is uselessly being remade in English by Cloverfield director Matt Reeves and original director Tomas Alfredson is understandably unhappy.

“Remakes should be made of movies that aren’t very good, that gives you the chance to fix whatever has gone wrong,” Alfredson tells Moviezine. “I’m very proud of my movie and think it’s great, but the Americans might be of an other opinion. The saddest thing for me would be to see that beautiful story made into something mainstream.” … “I don’t like to whine, but of course – if you’d spent years on painting a picture, you’d hate to hear buzz about a copy even before your vernissage!”

Hear hear Tomas Alfredson, I couldn’t agree more. See the original film’s trailer here.

Another useless remake, and from a crappy director to boot!

Despite the fact that it hasn’t been shown anywhere except from film festivals, the Swedish vampire film Let The Right One In (original title Låt Den Rätte Komma In) is already getting a remake courtesy of director Matt Reeves aka the guy who brought us Cloverfield, one of the worst, most overrated movies of all time. Why, God, why? As usual, watch the original’s trailer above.

Kate Hudson has settled on token rebound guy (no more applicants please)

The recently single Kate Hudson (Fool’s Gold), whose constant need of penis is well documented, has once again united with funnyman Owen Wilson (Drillbit Taylor), which makes this the third time the two blondes have been together. Let’s remember that Wilson attempted suicide early in 2007, a move widely believed to have been brought by Hudson just dumping him for the first time. But nothing happened after the second dumping, so one can assume she explained to him that from now on, she’s just going to come back to him each time one of her other relationships end.

The pretty 29 year old, who just separated from biker Lance Armstrong, has slept with pretty much everyone in Hollywood by now, and while I appreciate that can’t stay alone for five minutes, I have to wonder, when’s my turn? Sure, I don’t live in America but celebrities travel all the time, so Kate, if you’re reading and want a piece of me, contact me for details. Seriously.

Kate Hudson will next be seen in My Best Friend’s Girl, a comedy from director Howard Deutch (The Whole Ten Yards), alongside Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Dane Cook (Good Luck Chuck), Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield) and Jason Biggs (the first three American Pie movies). Owen Wilson’s next, the comedy Marley & Me,  co-stars the similarly bed-hopping Jennifer Aniston (The Break-Up)  as well as Alan Arkin (Get Smart), and is directed by The Devil Wears Prada helmer David Frankel. The movie is based on a bestselling nonficiton book by John Grogan, which was adapted by Scott Frank (The Lookout) and Don Roos (Happy Endings).
