Interview with the vampire

In a period in which dozens and dozens of series are launched a week, the most varied communication strategies are adopted. This also applies to Interview with the Vampire, the ambitious new series that the American network AMC is working on. The production is obviously taken from the homonymous book by Ann Rice which, released in 1976, had then given inspiration in 1994 to the famous film by Neil Jordan which starred Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Christian Slater and a very young Kirsten Dunst. The original novel also gave rise to a saga, the Vampire Chronicles, which has over a dozen titles. The series wants to launch a real universe taken from the books of Rice, who recently passed away, and in the meantime a series of short teasers spread on the web in recent months is making itself known.

How to See in the clips above, we are gradually introduced to this vampire-populated world, first wandering through the darkened corridors of a mansion and then seeing a character from behind making his arrival in New Orleans. Obviously, the latter is none other than Lestat de Lioncourt, a young French noble who has fallen into a vampire in the eighteenth century and finds himself at the center of the many events of this saga. If in the first film his role was played by none other than Cruise, in the serial version he will instead have the face of Sam Reid (Australian actor seen in Anonymous and The girl in the painting), while Louis de Pointe du Lac - the vampire actually interviewed in the first novel - will have the face of Jacob Anderson (the Gray Worm from Game of Thrones), after being played by Pitt. Just Louis is the protagonist of the latest teaser released in the past few hours.

The interviewee asks Louis if he has always been a vampire, to which he replies: “No, before to become a vampire I was a man of thirty-three ”. It is not yet clear what will be the renewed context in which these well-known characters will be inserted in this new adaptation. where you go from horse-drawn carriages to cassette tape recorders. What is certain is that to take care of the series as showrunner will be Rolin Jones, who had recently worked on the remake of Perry Mason, while to produce with him there will be Mark Johnson who, in addition to having a great experience in series such as Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and Halt and Catch Fire will also have the task of supervising the entire universe linked to the Vampire Chronicles, given that the Amc project is to draw several serial titles from the various novels of Rice, with the collaboration of his son. her, Christopher. Interview with the Vampire, meanwhile, is expected to debut by the end of 2022.

New Interview With the Vampire Teaser Released

AMC has released a new teaser for its upcoming Interview With the Vampire. The new teaser, shared to the series' official Twitter account on Monday, is just under 20 seconds, but gives viewers a little taste of the titular interview with its subject explaining that he wasn't always vampire but instead, was a 33-year-old man before he was turned. This latest teaser follows one released last month that focuses more on Lestat, so it seems only natural that this one hints at Louis.

AMC's Interview With the Vampire stars Sam Reid as Lestat de Lioncourt and Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac and from everything we've seen thus far, appears to be set in the early 20th century. AMC's adaptation of Anne Rice's beloved 1976 novel of the same name has taken a long path to the small screen. The book was previously adapted into a film starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in 1994, but Rice didn't regain rights to the novel until 2016. There have been numerous attempts over the years to adapt her The Vampire Chronicles series, but only AMC's that progressed beyond the initial stages of development. The network officially moved forward with Interview With the Vampire in 2021.

'Developing this series carries great pressure and responsibility,' Johnson said. 'What Anne Rice created and what her fans have been transfixed by forces us to take this book-to-television show transition with a great deal of responsibility. It is imperative that we do not disappoint her fans and yet we need to make sure that this tory, these characters sing for a modern audience.'

He added, 'We are hoping that this series compels the Anne Rice fan to rediscover her works. We are also hoping that those viewers who have never read an Anne Rice novel go running to the bookstore eager to understand what all the fuss is about.'

Interview With the Vampire isn't the only one of Rice's novels being adapted by AMC, either. The network is also adapting Rice's Lives of the Mayfair Witches books as well and recently cast Alexandra Daddario in that series' lead role. Sadly, Rice passed away in December of last year before either series could premiere.

In addition to Reid and Anderson, Interview With the Vampire stars Bailey Bass as child vampire Claudia, and Succession star Eric Bogosian as Daniel Molloy, the investigative journalist conducting the titular interview. 

Interview With the Vampire is expected to debut on AMC and AMC+ this fall.
