If you are a lover of vampire books, then you most probably have heard about and read at least one of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. You might even have strong opinions about the movies based on her books, Interview With the Vampire and Queen of the Damned. Well, fans of the books but not the movies should be rejoicing. The lady herself, Anne Rice announced as soon as she got her rights back, that her and her son, Christopher Rice, would be starting to develop a script for a tv series in the vein of Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead. As I follow her on FB (click here for the link to her announcement) , I saw the announcement on the 26th when she dropped the news. I can’t wait to see what she is able to do with these characters in long format. I truly believe that she is right, and tv is where Lestat and Louis belong.
I feel like I need to go back and reread these, just to get read to watch it on tv. Although this does leave me wondering where this show might end up. FX who is now known for their cutting edge shows or a premium channel like HBO or Showtime, who are both known for pushing boundaries. Sadly, it will probably be awhile as I imagine it takes a while to get a tv show script put together and shopped around.
