Bryan Fuller and Anne Rice are teaming up for a TV series based on Rice's Vampire Chronicles. Fans have even more reason to get excited, as Hannibal and American Gods showrunner Bryan Fuller is helping the Rice family develop the series' pilot.
Paramount TV and Anonymous Content are developing Rice's Vampire Chronicles books for TV, with Fuller collaborating with Rice and her son Christopher on the pilot episode. But for now, please help us welcome this brilliant and wildly talented force to Team Vampire Chronicles.
Bryan Fuller has officially moved on.
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. "For a year now, my mother and I have had the joy of working with creative partners at Paramount Television and Anonymous Content who share our vision for a prestigious, long-form, high quality and high production value television series focusing on the journey of the immortal Lestat as he travels the lengths of the vampire world detailed in The Vampire Chronicles", he writes.
'Hannibal' Creator Developing 'Vampire Chronicles' TV Series
Fuller has not commented on his involvement yet, but a few fans took a tweet of his from past year as an opportunity to hope there was something in the works.
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. He went on: "Almost instantly after we sold the rights last April, we knew we were working with some of the finest producers television had to offer".
There is no release date or casting information for the TV adaptation of the series. The co-creator of Discovery, he left the television revival before it debuted a year ago. The 2002 movie Queen Of The Damned combined plot elements from the second and third books, The Vampire Lestat and The Queen Of The Damned.More news: Russian Federation will explain to United States sanctions against Iran, DPRK are vicious - diplomat
