Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles Coming to Theaters Again!

Every vampire fan knows of Anne Rice’s influential Vampire Chronicles, and we all know about the two film adaptions based on her novels – the flawless “Interview with the Vampire” and the terrible “Queen of the Damned” – but in spite of the disappointment of the last film, Anne is giving it another shot and is in talks to create yet another film based on the Vampire Chronicles! Yay! On top of that, she’s taking a break from her “Songs of the Seraphim” saga and writing another book about immortals! Excuse me while I explode from joy…

Ahem, ok. Anne held a book signing in Palm Springs this past weekend where she discussed her upcoming plans. Prior to the signing, she told fans that she plans on writing the third part of the “Songs of the Seraphim” series, but first she’s working on her next novel, to be released in 2012, which will be a separate work called “Born For Atlantis.”

Taking elements from her Vampire Chronicles, the new novel is about “immortals who came to the planet thousands of years ago, and they become involved with Atlantis and the fall of Atlantis, and they’re still alive now,” said Rice. They’re “immortals who don’t have to drink blood.” Yes, it’s not a vampire book, which is a little disappointing, but is about immortals and Atlantis, which makes this Anne Rice fan very very happy!

But books aren’t the only thing on Rice’s mind, she is also involved in discussions with Hollywood to make another Vampire Chronicles movie as a follow-up to “Interview With The Vampire.”

“We’re still in talks, and I hope we’ll have an announcement in a few weeks,” she said.

I can’t wait for the announcement! While I enjoyed “Queen of the Damned” as its own separate entity, I hated it as an adaption (as did every Vampire Chronicles fan and even Anne herself). So I am pretty geeked that there’s to be another film to follow “Interview With The Vampire.”

What do you think? Are you excited about the movie plans? Will you read “Born For Atlantis” even though it’s not about vampires?

  7. Well… I enjoyed Interview and felt Queen was often pretty but boring. Immortals from Atlantis? Hm, how about vampires from Transylvania? p

  12. Vampires who don’t drink blood with ties to Atlantis… Anyone else suddenly have the urge go look at Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series already sitting on their book shelves??

    1. But they aren’t vampires, they’re just immortals of some kind. Also, Kenyon and Rice’s writing styles are completely different, I love them both, but they are very different. So even if they did have a similar plot outline, the books would be nothing like one another.

  15. Ok, I’m assuming if it’s a “follow-up” to Interview With The Vampire, then it must be a movie version of The Vampire Lestat! If they’re going to make a movie of that book and it actually turns out well, I will be over the moon!! I adore that book and have wished for a movie version ever since I first read it.

  17. I love the idea of a new Vampire Chronicles movie. I think they should start from The Vampire Lestat and go from there.
