Before Twilight and the vampire love in, there was INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE, a 90’s tale that has become a huge cult favourite that starred Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, with a scene stealing and very young Kristen Dunst that surprisingly still holds up really well today on repeated watch.
Now AMC have confirmed that they are to adapt the Ann Rice books “The Vampire Chronicles” for the small screen and that Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul producer Mark Johnson will oversea the entire production.
Rolin Jones has been confirmed as the showrunner.
This is what Johnson had to say about the chance to be involved in such an iconic Vampire tale:
The challenge of adapting for television the ground-breaking and immensely compelling work of Anne Rice is both intimidating and exhilarating. Having previously produced films from such singular works, I recognize both the responsibility and the obligation we owe the material. I strongly believe that with AMC and Rolin Jones we are equipped to meet this challenge and to thrill and entertain both the loyal Anne Rice fan and the viewer who is just now discovering her work.”
