Interview With The Vampire Remake Is Still In The Works

After years in development hell, it appears a remake of Interview With The Vampire is still in the works.

Filmmaker Josh Boone, best known for The Fault in Our Stars, posted an image of a screenplay cover, dated April 2016. It says that it's based on Anne Rice's Interview With the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat.

While the Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise original was a big commercial hit, Rice's fans have never been totally satisfied with the liberties it took with the source material. A later Rice adaptation, Queen of the Damned, was even more reviled (and less commercially successful).

The Vampire Chronicles made Rice an international celebrity and arguably set the stage for later vampire-centered series like True Blood and Twilight which focused less on the monstrous aspects of the immortal bloodsuckers.
