Back in the 1990s, Anne Rice’s novel, Interview with the Vampire was adapted for the big screen. It had great performances from Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and a huge breakout one from a young Kirsten Dunst.
In the years since then, Hollywood has tried to adapt this entire franchise, and vampires have since fallen in and out of fashion. However, it sounds like they may be getting close to cracking the code on this one.
According to Paramount TV head Amy Powell, Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller is hard at work alongside Anne Rice herself, as well as her son to bring it all to life. Here’s what she said in an interview with THR:
“We bought 11 novels as part of the Vampire Chronicles initiative. Bryan Fuller is working with Anne Rice and [her son] Chris, who are writing the pilot. We are hoping he chooses to stay on and potentially showrun.”
This is incredibly promising news. Recently, Fuller was able to work his magic on the too-short series Hannibal, as well as get things started with American Gods and Star Trek: Discovery. Clearly, this guy knows how to adapt long-form content, so Paramount could do much worse than him.
Does Fuller’s involvement — along with author Anne Rice — get you excited about how this adaptation could turn out? Let us know down below!
