Bryan Fuller Is Working on Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles

'Hannibal' Creator Developing 'Vampire Chronicles' TV Series Bryan Fuller Lestat-us Update: He's Working On Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles Show
Herman Weaver | 15 January, 2018, 04:23

Based on the novels of Anne Rice, the drama centers on Lestat, a French nobleman who was turned into a vampire in 18th century New Orleans. "We bought 11 novels as part of the Vampire Chronicles initiative", she said.

Rice's son, gay author Christopher Rice, shared the news earlier this week in a Facebook post.

Facebook/OfficialVampireChroniclesAnne Rice's "The Vampire Chronicles" book series will become a television show with Bryan Fuller as collaborator.

Anne Rice's son and collaborator on the project, Christopher Rice, revealed the news with an unbelievable anecdote on Facebook, sharing that when he was just a teenager, Fuller had looked Rice up in the phone book and told her he had a dream of adapting her books for the screen one day.

Nigel Farage has said the historic Brexit referendum result could be overturned
They will go on whinging and whining and moaning all the way through this process". He said: "My mind is actually changing on all this.

Cowen Reaffirms Buy Rating for Pepsico (PEP)
Zacks Investment Research cut shares of Pepsico from a hold rating to a sell rating in a research report on Thursday, January 4th. Jbf Capital Inc increased its stake in Pepsico Inc Cmn (PEP) by 4100% based on its latest 2017Q3 regulatory filing with the SEC.


The series will revolve around Lestat de Lioncourt (the character Tom Cruise played in 1994's Interview With the Vampire), but there's no word on which books were optioned or how previous adaptations could come into play. A loose, and far less successful, adaptation of Rice's 1988 book The Queen of the Damned followed in 2002. He dug up the author's phone number and called her at home, apparently managing a friendly chat before (incredibly) being passed onto the producer who held the film rights.

Given Fuller's mastery of blending romance with the macabre, he makes the ideal choice to help develop this series. He was also the showrunner on "Hannibal" and "Dead Like Me". The second, is the announcement of this thrilling partnership with Paramount Television and Anonymous Content.

"The Vampire Chronicles" will soon pick out the cast after the Rice and Fuller finish writing the pilot.

Fuller's involvement with the project was revealed by Amy Powell, president of Paramount Television and Digital Entertainment, in a wide-ranging interview with The Hollywood Reporter. The writer and producer is also attached to the development of "Amazing Stories" with Steven Spielberg for Apple TV, as announced in October.
