He's Working On Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles Show

Fuller is the writer and producer behind such as television series as Hannibal, American Gods and Star Trek: Discovery.

"We bought 11 novels as part of the Vampire Chronicles initiative", Powell said. His wild gothic nightmare series Hannibal drew influence from Rice's books, particularly the turbulent relationship between vampires Louis and Lestat, as it did Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter series.

Debuting in 1976 with the beststelling Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Chronicles has spanned a dozen novels and four decades, telling the story of Lestat de Lioncourt, a French nobleman who was turned into a vampire in the 18th century, and the people with whom his afterlife intersects.

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.

Today I'm thrilled to inform you that the young man of which I speak is Bryan Fuller, who grew up to be one of television's most innovative creative forces, responsible for such an unbelievable array of shows as HANNIBAL, DEAD LIKE ME and PUSHING DAISIES. The most popular adaptation is 1994 film Interview with the Vampire, directed by Neil Jordan and starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Kirsten Dunst. Last year, Rice announced she had regained theatrical rights to her books and was working on developing a television series for them with her son. Stuart Townsend then played him in the 2002 adaptation of The Queen of the Damned.

No word yet on a network, casting or timeframe, but we'd be shocked if a network doesn't pick this up especially with the fan base behind Anne Rice and Bryan Fuller has proven to be great at taking books to tv especially if Season 1 of American God's was any indication.
