LET ME IN’s Matt Reeves has signed on at Universal Pictures
to write and direct a feature based on the Ray Nelson short story “8 O’Clock in
the Morning,” which John Carpenter loosely adapted into his 1988 film THEY
According to Deadline,
the project isn’t considered a remake. Nelson’s story concerns a man who wakes
up one morning with the realization that we’re surrounded by the presence of
aliens that are controlling society. In Carpenter’s film, wearing special

"I saw an opportunity to do a movie that was very
point-of-view-driven, a psychological science fiction thriller that explores
this guy’s nightmare," Reeves tells the site. "There could be a desperate love
story at the center of this. Carpenter took a satirical view of the material
and the larger political implication that we’re being controlled. I am very
drawn to the emotional side, the nightmare experience with the paranoia of
INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS or a Roman Polanski-style film."
