Watch Out Tumblr, Bryan Fuller's Helping On Anne Rice's VAMPIRE CHRONICLES Show

Bryan Fuller Lestat-us Update: He's Working On Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles Show

It's high time we saw another Vampire Chronicles adaptation, and with the current trend for big-budget TV, you'll get all the gore and sexy vampire melodrama you could possibly want.

But he is helping Anne and Chris Rice write the pilot, and it's hard to imagine a better marriage of personal quirks and source material.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount TV president Amy Powell was asked about the network's much-anticipated Vampire Chronicles series, which she is calling "the Vampire Chronicles initiative".

Bryan Fuller has apparently found a new project after departing both Star Trek: Discovery and American Gods. 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. The most recent book, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, came out a year ago.

Bryan Fuller will leave his mark on Anne Rice's new Vampire Chronicles TV show

Anne Rice's son and collaborator on the project, Christopher Rice, revealed the news with an awesome anecdote on Facebook, sharing that when he was just a teenager, Fuller had looked Rice up in the phone book and told her he had a dream of adapting her books for the screen one day.

For those who've only dipped their fangs into Rice's supernatural writings, Lestat is the vampire played by Tom Cruise in the 1994 film adaptation of Interview With the Vampire (in which Fuller was not involved). He is also known for Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls and Hannibal. A loose, and far less successful, adaptation of Rice's 1988 book The Queen of the Damned followed in 2002.

Back in November 2016, rights to the characters of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles series of books had reverted back to the author who expressed her interest in turning her series into a TV show.
