Vampire queen Anne Rice has an important message for her fans: She is once again in full creative control of her artistic, blood-sucking property and is ready to reintroduce Lestat, Armand and company to the world in her own way.

The Vampire Chronicles is the lengthy saga that beloved movie was taken from, but Rice has a bigger vision for her creation than just a reboot movie. The goddess of erotic vampirism envisages a Game of Thrones-style TV series for her series, sharing the news with fans in a long Facebook post:

The theatrical rights to the 'Vampire Chronicles' are once again in my hands, free and clear! I could not be more excited about this! --- A television series of the highest quality is now my dream for Lestat, Louis, Armand, Marius and the entire tribe. In this the new Golden Age of television, such a series is THE way to let the entire story of the vampires unfold... Over the years you all have told me how much you want to see a 'Game of Thrones' style faithful rendering of this material, and how much you want for the series to remain in my control. Well, I have heard you. I have always heard you. What you want is what I want.

Personally, my favorite era of Anne Rice was when she wrote all those pervy books like Belinda (basically a Penthouse fiction Lolita) and would love to see those televised, preferably on late-night cable with vaseline-smeared lenses.

Could Anne Rice really be plotting something that'll be more adored by her legions of fans than the 1994 movie adaptation?


Are you excited about a 'Game of Thrones'-quality, glossy TV adaptation of 'The Vampire Chronicles'?
