Universal only just put more energy into its efforts to adapt Anne Rice‘s vampire novels into films, as the studio renewed the option on 13 of Rice’s “Vampire Chronicles” books. The studio isn’t wasting any time getting moving on that option, as The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone is now in early talks to write and direct an adaptation of The Vampire Lestat, which was the centerpiece of Rice’s original trilogy of vampire novels.
The Vampire Lestat is a story very rooted in the ’80s, and we don’t know if this would be a period piece, or a modernized adaptation. If things come together, Boone would make this film after doing The Stand for Warner Bros.
