Hannibal Creator To Develop Vampire Chronicles TV Series

Considering he's now gone from American Gods (after the first season) and Star Trek: Discovery (before it truly began), and we haven't had an update on that Amazing Stories revival in a while, there is definitely room for Fuller to take on a new project.

Bryan Fuller is working on a Lestat TV series with Anne Rice; basically the ultimate dream-team for fans of bloody gothic romance. "We are hoping he chooses to stay on and potentially showrun", Powell said. The most recent book, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, came out previous year.

Paramount TV and Anonymous Content gained the rights to 11 books in the series in April, which started in 1976 with the publication of Interview with the Vampire. The series sprawls over several years and characters, but it mainly follows Lestat de Lioncourt, a French nobleman who was turned into a vampire in the 18th century.

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).

Fuller has not commented on his involvement yet, but a few fans took a tweet of his from a year ago as an opportunity to hope there was something in the works. He is also known for Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls and Hannibal. And those producers knew that Bryan would be a ideal addition to our creative team.

Fuller's attachment was also announced on The Vampire Chronicles' Facebook page, in which Chris Rice, Anne's son, tells a story about a young Fuller cold-calling Anne Rice as a teenager and telling her he would adapt her books one day.

As one of the most popular vampire series, there's a constant clamor for more adaptations of the books.
