Anne Rice Regains Theatrical Rights to Vampire Chronicles Series

Posted by at 7:21 pm on November 27, 2016


Author Anne Rice, who’s works include Interview with a Vampire, announced Saturday that she has regained control of the theatrical rights for the series that includes that title and several others, the Vampire Chronicles. Most recently, Universal Studios and Imagine Entertainment had optioned the right to the series with plans to make a series of motion pictures, but after many attempts at development, the project had stalled.

On her Facebook page, Rice announced the following plans for the future of the series:

“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. 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.”
