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. Many years have passed and it seemed as though we would never see the vampire Lestat make a visual return again. That all may soon be changing.
We have learned that Anne Rice is looking to bring her world famous book series to television. The novelist recently shared a post on Facebook announcing that she had regained the theatrical rights to The Vampire Chronicles. She made it known that her intentions are to create an adaptation of the series that will flower into an open-ended TV series saying:
“A television series of the highest quality is now my dream for Lestat, Louis, Armand, Marius and the entire tribe. In this new Golden Age of television, such a series is THE way to let the entire story of the vampires unfold.”
Anne Rice will be partnering with her son, Christopher Rice, who is also an author. She also revealed that the two are "developing a pilot script and a detailed outline for an open-ended series faithfully presenting Lestat’s story as it is told in the books, complete with many situations that readers expect to see.”
A GAME OF THRONES style approach for the series was hinted at from the author.
Both Anne and Christopher will be executive producing the series, with Rice saying that they will likely start with the second novel, The Vampire Lestat and move on from there.
Here is the post in it's entirety.
