Anne Rice's “The Vampire Chronicles” are known the world over. In 1994 her first entry of the series was adapted into a film of the same title INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE and 2004 saw the release of QUEEN OF THE DAMNED. Ten years have passed and it seemed as though we would never see anymore of Lestat on the big screen. That all may soon be changing.
Universal and Imagine Entertainment have scored the rights to Anne Rice's popular series. The deal allows access to every entry in "The Vampire Chronicles" including future releases as well as the adapted screenplay of TALE OF THE BODY THIEF which was penned by Chirsopher Rice, Anne's son. Currently there are 13 books within the series, with "Prince Lestat" coming to shelves in October.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will be producing the films, with Bobby Cohen executive producing. Overseeing for Imagine Entertainment will be Erica Huggins.
Who knows what will be decided as far as what films will be made. It will also be interesting to see who is chosen to portray the Lestat character. Will we see a continuation of the series, or will they decide to go with rebooting it all? We will continue to follow this story.
