So we’re not going to go into too much detail except to say that the rumour is that The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone is in talks to direct the new Lestat movie (based on the books The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned) for Universal. It seems that, at the minute anyway, there are no plans to remake Interview With The Vampire, but the new movies will be faithful to Anne Rice’s original novels.
All the Anne Rice Vampire novels are being optioned for movies now – the idea being to create one united cinematic universe. Well, everyone wants one now, don’t they?
Boone is currently working on his adaptation of Stephen king’s The Stand which the author has given his blessing to. So, if this story is true, Lestat will probably be his next movie.
