Anne Rice To Adapt 'Vampire Chronicles' For TV

Dark angel.

The genius behind some of the most iconic vampire stories ever is adapting her works for the small screen. *Shrieking.* Anne Rice's genre-defining books have previously been adapted into cult movies Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned. Now, the literary legend will be creating her very own television version of The Vampire Chronicles!!!!!

"A television series of the highest quality is now my dream for Lestat, Louis, Armand, Marius, and the entire tribe," Anne announced on Facebook. "In this the new Golden Age of television, such a series is the way to let the entire story of the vampires unfold." Literally dying over this news. 

Anne added that the series would be a Game of Thrones-style epic that will begin with the story of Lestat (famously played by Tom Cruise in IWTV).
