‘The Vampire Chronicles’ Receives Major Adaptation

Anne Rice’s entire books series now under development

Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment are planning feature film adaptions of Anne Rice’s “The Vampire Chronicles” book series.

The deal covers Rice’s existing and future novels along with “Tale of the Body Thief,” which was adapted into a screenplay by Rice’s son, Christopher.

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (“Star Trek”) will produce the project along with Brian Grazer (“24: Live Another Day”). Also aboard are Bobby Cohen (“Memoirs of a Geisha”), who will serve as an executive producer, and Erica Huggins (“Flightplan”), who will shepherd the films for Imagine Entertainment.

Rice’s work has received adaptions in the past, and it remains unclear if those works are slated for reboots. In 1994, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt starred in “Interview with the Vampire,” which was directed by Neil Jordan (“The Crying Game”). “Queen of the Damned,” starring Aaliyah and Stuart Townsend, followed in 2002.

“The Vampire Chronicles” made its debut in 1976 with “Interview with the Vampire,” and it includes “The Vampire Lestat” in 1985, “The Queen of the Damned” in 1988, “The Tale of the Body Thief” in 1992, “Memnoch the Devil” in 1995, “The Vampire Armand” in 1998, “Merrick” in 2000, “Blood and Gold” in 2001, “Blackwood Farm” in 2002 and “Blood Canticle” in 2003.

The next book in the series, “Prince Lestat,” is expected to hit stores in October.
