Hollywood's Finally Broken: 'Interview With the Vampire' to Be Rebooted

By Emily Chambers | Trade News | August 8, 2014 | Comments ()


At this point, what do you even say about the over- saturated vampire genre? Maybe it could be summed up by the fact that we’ve reached over- saturation on articles criticizing the over- saturated vampire genre. But don’t worry because Anne Rice just got another book adaptation deal. After all, if Hollywood is going to bring us more vampire movies, it might as well bring us recycled vampire movies.

Universal Pictures, Imagine Entertainment, and Brian Grazer have acquired rights to Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles in a juicy deal that spans the entire library of Rice’s bloodsucker series.

Rice’s Vampire Chronicles novels are centered around 18th century French nobleman vamp Lestat de Lioncourt and previously spawned feature adaptations Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned at rival Warner Bros. The deal gives Universal and Imagine access to the entire Vampire Chronicle series as well as the adapted screenplay for Tale of the Body Thief by Rice’s son Christopher Rice and any future novels including the upcoming 11th book Prince Lestat.

Originally I was less than enthused at the idea of this franchise being rebooted. But then I remembered the hair. The glorious, ill-fitting, poorly-colored hair.

I forgot you were in this movie. Your hair is terrible.

And let’s not forget:

I would marry this picture if I could.

So forget what I said about the over-saturation. Bring on the remake! I want Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender in the leads with the worst wigs this century has ever seen. Because it’s not just in the movies that we get terrible hair. Sometimes this happens:

You are a miracle, Emma Thompson. Never change.
