Downey as Lestat?

08.14.2009

Ever since his welcome return from relative obscurity, it seems like Robert Downey Jr. has been collecting franchises. IRON MAN, SHERLOCK HOLMES, and now... the vampire Lestat?

According to Bloody Disgusting, Downey is in discussions with Universal to slip on the fake fangs once worn by Tom Cruise and Stuart Townsend, for a new film featuring Anne Rice's bold bloodsucker Lestat de Lioncourt.

Considering vampires are everywhere these days, it's not surprising a studio would want to return to the popular series of books. It's unknown what direction the film would take -- the Lestat character has appeared in a number of the author's Vampire Chronicles novels, two of which were previously adapted to screen (INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE and QUEEN OF THE DAMNED).

Extra Tidbit: Personally, I'd rather see Downey do another Harry Lockhart mystery.
