Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles Rights Secured by Universal, More Vampire Movies Incoming

Too! Too many vampire movies! Ah ah ah ah.

It looks like Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have sympathy for the devil: They—along with Brian Grazer—have secured the rights to Anne Rice's entire series of Vampire Chronicles novels. Although, the only way they'll ever have time to make movies out of all those books is if they're undead immortals.

Anne Rice Sics Her Fandom on Unaffiliated Lone Blogger for One Poor Review

the internet is serious business

If there's one valuable lesson a creator can learn, it's not to engage with reviewers. With very few exceptions, railing against a negative review reflects most poorly on the reviewed, who are likely to come off as petulant, not the reviewer. Unless a creator can prove definitively and objectively that a reviewer has misrepresented their work in some way (as has occasionally happened in video game reviews where publicly available play statistics and screenshots reveal reviewers who played merely the first few hours of the game, for example), it's better to simply ignore the review, and it should seem obvious that this maxim applies even more stringently when the source of the review is a lone fan rather than a professional. So when Kayleigh Herbertson picked up a used, abused dime store copy of Anne Rice's Pandora in order to use its pages in a craft project and wound up reading it for a lark, and then reviewing it, she should not have expected to be called out by an internationally famous author who tacitly invited her fandom to harass Herbertson in the comment section of her post.

i'll just leave this here

That crying man you see is Azriel, the title character in Anne Rice's new horror comic for IDW, Servant of the Bones, which is an adaptation of her novel of the same name. He is sad because a girl was murdered, but also because he finds out about an even bigger plot setting up the end of the world. ("Valentine's Day. Bummer.")

Anne Rice Calls Vampires in Highschool “Ridiculous”

Anne Rice news is making the entertainment blogs this weekend for an interview with Vulture Magazine in which she hypothetically casts a hypothetical modern adaptation of Interview With a Vampire, mentioning, among other people, Robert Downey, Jr. for the role of Lestat.

Now Lestat, there are a lot of people who could play Lestat... Jamie Bamber, he’s terrific, I was just watching him last night in England’s Law & Order. I’d seen him on Battlestar Galactica, but I’d never seen him unleash that beautiful diction. So I think there are many, many actors...
Robert Downey Jr.? That would be wonderful. He is a great actor. He would bring the gravitas and the wit and humor and all of that to the part, and I don’t think he’s too old. I think if he had a blond wig and makeup, he would be a wonderful Lestat. Lestat has to have the gravitas of a 200-year-old man and Robert Downey Jr. can do it.
But we were actually much more interested in her comments on Twilight.
