Bryan Fuller set to adapt "The Vampire Chronicles" for TV

Bryan Fuller of American Gods, Star Trek Discovery Hannibal and Pushing Daisies will help bring the vampire Lestat to TV.

Partnering with Paramount Television and Anonymous Content to create a show that will focus on the journey of the vampire Lestat as he travels the world based on The Vampire Chronicles.

Christopher shares a funny story about Bryan Fuller wanting to do a film adaption of The Vampire Chronicles. Sometime in the 1980’s, a young teenager from Washington State, who dreamed of working in Hollywood one day, decided it was his destiny to write a film adaptation of a novel called INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE. So that teenager did what any resourceful, gifted and determined young person would do in such an instance; he got a copy of the San Francisco phone book and checked to see if the novel’s author had a listed phone number.
It turns out she did. To his astonishment, the author, my mother Anne Rice, answered the phone herself when he called, and when this young man declared his intentions to adapt her book for the big screen, she gave him the number of the producer in Hollywood who owned the rights. Naturally, the producer’s response was something along the lines of, “You’re too young, kid. Go hone your talent. Maybe someday.”

No other announcements regarding casting or creative team.

Dream cast for the roles? Does this interest you ONTD?
