Anne Rice Reveals Dream Cast for 'Vampire Chronicles' TV Show

Anne Rice recently revealed that she has obtained the rights to develop a television series based on her Vampire Chronicles books. Now, she is dishing on her dream cast!

The legendary author envisions a show like Game of Thrones for her book series.

While Anne did not reveal her pick to play Lestat, she did dish on her pick for Louis. “It’s Louis’ beauty that attracted Lestat to him, and I would hope it would be a beautiful actor like Matt Bomer. Somebody with that incredible beauty. Brad Pitt did a beautiful job in the original film, and he set the bar very high when it comes to physical beauty,” she told Entertainment Weekly.

Anne Rice Announces Plans for 'Vampire Chronicles' TV Series

Anne Rice has announced plans to develop a new television series based on her “Vampire Chronicles” novels!

The rights to the books were previously held by Universal and Imagine Entertainment, but the author was able to get the theatrical rights in her hands, “free and clear.”

“I could not be more excited about this! A television series of the highest quality is now my dream for Lestat, Louis, Armand, Marius and the entire tribe. In this the new Golden Age of television, such a series is THE way to let the entire story of the vampires unfold,” Anne wrote on Facebook.

“My son Christopher Rice and I will be 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 the many situations that readers expect to see,” she added. “We will likely begin with ‘The Vampire Lestat’ and move on from there. When we sit down finally to talk to producers, we will have a fully realized vision of this project with Christopher as the executive producer at the helm. I will also be an executive producer all the way.”

“Again, I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to be able to announce this,” Anne added.
