Bryan Fuller boards Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles TV series


The writer and executive producer has signed on to shepherd the new adaptation of Anne Rice's VAMPIRE CHRONICLES novel series, it was announced Thursday.

Anne and Christopher Rice welcomed Fuller into the creative team / vampire family for The Vampire Chronicles, a Paramount Television and Anonymous Content production. His wild gothic nightmare series Hannibal drew influence from Rice's books, particularly the turbulent relationship between vampires Louis and Lestat, as it did Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter series.

"We bought 11 novels as part of the Vampire Chronicles initiative", Powell said.

Anne Rice fans, rejoice (and Hannibal fans, too, for that matter): Bryan Fuller, who knows a thing or two about cranking up the atmosphere to wickedly tense effect, is on board for the pilot episode of the new Vampire Chronicles TV series that Anne Rice and her son, Christopher, are developing with Paramount.

On the heels of leaving Starz's American Gods, Bryan Fuller has signed on to bring another beloved piece of geek property to the small screen.

The move creates a deadline on talks over a nuclear deal the European Union says is working, and that it will not touch. Notably, the president is likely to also impose new targeted sanctions on the nation's businesses and people.

"The Vampire Chronicles", which was first published in 1976, had 12 books.

It's worth noting that Fuller hasn't commented on his involvement with the project, but he did recently tweet an Anne Rice quote. "And those producers knew that Bryan would be a ideal addition to our creative team". The co-creator of Discovery, he left the television revival before it debuted past year.

"Interview with the Vampire" came out in 1994 with Brad Pitt, Christian Slater, Kirsten Dunst and Tom Cruise as Lestat.

In the post, the author's son also notes how a teenage Fuller looked up Rice in the phone book in the 1980s and called her, saying he wanted to write a film adaptation of Interview With the Vampire.

In the years since that adaptation, the Twilight series and True Blood series have both proven just how effective and exciting stories of love and vampires can be, making it seem like an obvious decision to adapt more of Rice's stories.
