The TV vampire craze seems more or less behind us, especially after The Vampire Diaries comes to a close in 2017, but could Anne Rice’s original bloodsuckers bring it back? We might find out, as rights to The Vampire Chronicles are officially primed for a TV series of “the highest quality,” according to the author.
The Vampire Chronicles
Over the last few days, Josh Boone shared some photos seemingly unveiling his lineup for X-Men spinoff New Mutants, but that’s not the only thing he revealed. The director of The Fault in Our Stars also posted a photo of the title page for his screenplay for the reboot of Interview With the Vampire. Boone followed that with another photo update, which may or may not be part of some weird joke. It’s kind of hard to tell with social media sometimes, you know?
Seems like Universal is dead serious about their horror plans: in addition to rebooting 'The Mummy' franchise and their classic famous monsters, the studio has taken the rights to Anne Rice's 'The Vampire Chronicles' -- and yes, that means we'll likely see a new version of 'Interview with the Vampire' sometime in the near future.
