Vampire Chronicles TV Series in the Works
For those of you that grew up in the 90s a little movie by the name of Interview with the Vampire probably defined how vampires should look and act for you. At the very least it depicted them with a sense of class and refinement that other vampires movies hadn’t done. I personally loved the movie and have not seen a vampire movie that I liked more than that one since. Interview with the Vampire was one small part of a much bigger story called the Vampire Chronicles. Personally I have never read the books but fans of both the books and the movies should be excited to know that original author Anne Rice is working on a TV series for fans.
Back in 2014, Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment acquired the rights to author Anne Rice’s novels The Vampire Chronicles. Supposedly there was even another movie in the works that had a finished script. However, all that has gone down the drain as Author Anne Rice herself has announced that not only does she have “The theatrical rights to the Vampire Chronicles” back in her possession but that she is currently working on a TV pilot based on her books with her son Christopher Rice. Honestly I think this is very exciting news and can’t wait to see what she has in store for fans of the book and movie series.
So far there is no TV network that the pilot is connected to but I’m sure that won’t last long. With the success of shows like The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, True Blood, and Vampire Diaries I personally think something like this is long over due. In fact I can remember re-watching Interview with the Vampire a few years ago and thinking that a TV series based on noble vampires set in the 18th century would make a great TV series.
