Written by admin

The AMC cable channel, the home of the Walking Dead franchise, has decided to turn to another type of classic monster. This time it’s about vampires. Active preparations are underway for the premiere of the first season of the series, based on the cult novel “An Interview with a Vampire” by Anne Rice. The new film adaptation will be a multi-series project and will try to eclipse the full-length version of 1994.


The first footage of the upcoming series with starring actors Sam Reed and Jacob Anderson, who play the roles of vampire Lestat and Louis de Pon, respectively, has appeared on the Internet.

The new footage deliberately does not show any new details - AMC wants to keep the intrigue to the last and avoid comparisons to the 1994 film with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.

The novel, written by Anne Rice, was published in 1976 and was the debut in the career of the then novice American writer. In the following years, Rice wrote several sequels about the vampire Lestat, which formed the cycle “Vampire Chronicles”. The first book was about 25-year-old Louis, who lost his loved ones in 1791 and the desire to live with them. But after meeting the vampire Lestat, he begins a completely different life.

Judging by the entourage, the action will take place in the XIX or even XX century.

Geffen Pictures and director Neil Jordan screened the novel in 1994. The resulting film was a great success. The main roles in it were played by Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Christian Slater and the very young Kirsten Dunst, who gained popularity in those years. With a budget of $ 60 million, the film grossed more than $ 223 million worldwide and received two Oscar nominations.

We saw the first look at the upcoming series in February, when AMC presented teasers for its future projects during the Super Bowl as an advertisement for its AMC + streaming service.

The premiere of the first season of “Interview with a Vampire” has not yet been approved, but, according to insiders, AMC + plans to release a project later this year.

Meanwhile, FX introduced Danny Boyle’s first trailer for “Pistols”which will tell the story of the creation and creative path of the main punk rock band in history – Sex Pistols.
