I think I'm provisionally excited just because of the possibility that the story could get out there. Regardless of LTROI being a masterpiece, it will never be regarded as a classic -- just a "cult" film -- if it doesn't achieve name recognition. That means much bigger numbers. You know that the stage adaptations seen in a lot of different countries helps. Let Me In also introduced another one or two million viewers to the story.
Don't get me wrong -- I don't have any interest in millions of people finding and liking our film, but I'm very sure that there are another 800 or 900 amongst the millions who would be knocked out by it, as we were.
Hey, I never give up. In spite of my lack of success, I'm going to keep rooting for more people to see our film. And then see what happens (if anything).
Of course, an A&E series could also be the complete debacle that some people think LMI is. Sigh. Promoting LTROI is a lonely and thankless task.
