Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles


I don't know about you all, but I am VERY excited to see that Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles is going to be made into films! Universal Pictures just acquired movie rights to the series:

Interview with the Vampire (1976)
The Vampire Lestat (1985)
The Queen of the Damned (1988)
The Tale of the Body Thief (1992)
Memnoch the Devil (1995)
The Vampire Armand (1998)
Merrick (2000)
Blood and Gold (2001)
Blackwood Farm (2002)
Blood Canticle (2003)
Prince Lestat (2014)


Interview with the Vampire and The Queen of the Damned have already been adapted into feature films, but fans are hoping for remakes -- apparently many people didn't think Tom Cruise made a good Lestat in Interview and Queen of the Damned wasn't well received by Rice fans or critics. I loved both versions, though. Watch Rice's opinion of Tom Cruise as Lestat and Queen of the Damned.

Want to add The Vampire Chronicles to your library? Buy the first four books on Amazon.

Interested in Prince Lestat, the newest addition to The Vampire Chronicles? Watch Rice discuss her newest novel.


Truly a die-hard Rice and Lestat fan?
Go to Lestat's Coronation Ball in New Orleans!
Rice will be at the Meet and Greet at St. Alphonsus Church, October 30th!
