New Mutants director Josh Boone is developing a new film adaptation of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat, Boone announced.
Jill Killington—who wrote 2016’s All We Had with Boone—will serve as co-writer. As reported in 2014, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (The Amazing Spider-Man, Star Trek) will produce, with Bobby Cohen (The Mummy, Now You See Me) as executive producer.
Rice has been publishing the Vampire series since 1976, with the most recent title having been released in 2014. Interview with the Vampire—which was adapted to film in 1994—centers on the lives of vampires Louis de Pointe du Lac and Lestat de Lioncourt with the twelve-year-old girl turned into their vampire daughter.
