It’s been 20 years since Neil Jordan’s film version of Interview With the Vampire saw Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt sucking blood, and now Universal is getting back into monsters in a big way. Not only are Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan spearheading a relaunch of the old Universal Monsters line, beginning with a new Mummy movie, the studio has snapped up rights to all of Anne Rice‘s Vampire Chronicles books.
So the whole 13-book series starting with Interview With the Vampire and ending with the forthcoming Prince Lestat novel, and the screenplay for Tales of the Body Thief, adapted by Rice’s son Christopher Rice, all belong to Universal for the time being.

In all his interviews discussing Jurassic World, star Chris Pratt has said over and over again how much he loves the franchise. He’s called it his generation’s Star Wars and seems genuinely stoked to be part of the fourth installment in the franchise.

That was in 2009 or 2010, long before anyone was cast or a full script was in existence. It eventually came true. Check out the Chris Pratt Jurassic World prediction video below. Read More »
