Kodi Smit-McPhee Joins Let Me In

First casting rumoured for remake

It doesn't seem to be a done deal yet, but Moviehole have found a nugget of info in the Herald Sun that suggests Australian youngster Kodi Scott-Mcphee, who we've yet to see as the co-star of The Road with Viggo Mortensen, is likely to be cast as Kare Hedebrant's replacement in Matt Reeve's Americanisation of Let the Right One In.

We've not seen much of Scott-McPhee to date, but if he can hold his own alongside Mortensen in Cormac McCarthy's bleak, brutal post-apocalyptic landscape, he ought to be well-prepared for John Ajvide Lindqvist's chilly horror.
