More Anne Rice movie vampires

Well, maybe they’ll get the casting right this time. Universal Pictures, Imagine Entertainment and Brian Grazer have acquired the film rights to author Anne Rice’s “Vampire Chronicles” series, including any future books about the vampire Lestat. Rice’s “Interview with the Vampire” was released as a feature film in 1994, starring Tom Cruise, about whose casting Rice famously said “[Cruise is] no more my vampire Lestat than Edward G. Robinson is Rhett Butler.” (She later, upon seeing the movie, revised her view.) Hmm, who might be good casting this time around? Don’t even think of Robert Pattinson.
