Compiled and written by Becket
Introduction by Anne Rice
Publisher: Anchor Books
Release Date: October 23, 2018
I have long been a fan of Anne Rice because of the way she blends the supernatural or preternatural with the sensual or suggestive. This sense of familiarity binds the characters together in such a way that we, as readers, are enabled to see the similarities in people and places rather than the differences. In Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles: An Alphabettery we get a full frontal view of this concept without reservation. Read on to find out more!
It’s been a hell of a past handful of years for Bryan Fuller. He was creator and showrunner on Hannibal, which ran from 2013 to 2015. He was creator and showrunner on Star Trek: Discovery, a dream job for him, before having to step down as showrunner. He was co-creator and co-showrunner on American Gods with Michael Green, before they departed as showrunners in November. He’s been working on a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories for Apple.
It wasn’t clear exactly why Fuller decided to walk away from American Gods. Considering it was both he and Green at the same time sounds a lot like creative differences with the studio. But we may now know of another reason. It’s been announced that Fuller has joined the creative team developing The Vampire Chronicles, a TV series based on author Anne Rice‘s book series of the same name, which began with Interview with the Vampire in 1976. This is another dream job for Fuller, as you can read about in the announcement below.
It was over two years ago that Universal Studios and Imagine Entertainment optioned the rights to Anne Rice‘s Vampire Chronicles with the intent to make film adaptations from the popular novels. Now, the author has revealed that the theatrical rights to the books are back in her hands, and she plans to bring the story to television.
Rice posted to her Facebook page that she and her writer son Christopher Rice will be developing a pilot script, as well as a detailed outline, for an open-ended Game of Thrones-style television series that will be faithful to the tale of the vampire Lestat. This is the opposite of the potential Twilight-like franchise Universal reportedly had been aiming for when they held the rights.
Author Anne Rice announced this week that a follow-up to her 2014 novel Prince Lestat is coming out this Fall.
Titled Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, Rice’s 36th book and the next installment in her wildly popular and successful Vampire Chronicles series, will be released by Random House in Hardcover, Paperback, and Kindle on November 29, 2016. Pre-order is available now.
