Setting up a potential “Twilight”-like franchise, Universal Pictures has acquired movie rights to Anne Rice’s novels in “The Vampire Chronicles” series for Brian Grazer and Imagine Entertainment.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are on board to produce.
The deal — announced Thursday — includes the adapted screenplay for “Tale of the Body Thief” written by Rice’s son, author Christopher Rice. Other novels in the series include “Interview with the Vampire” and the upcoming “Prince Lestat.”

I was just last night Wikipedia'ing her novels to remind myself of the historical horror novel, Servant of the Bones, that I started in high school & never got to finish. Fellow Anne Rice fans ONTDers, are you excited for these new adaptations? Did you enjoy the original ones?
