Interview With The Vampire TAGS

Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles has been optioned for a TV series

Oh, and how the ladies swooned when Brad Pitt transformed from a human into a marble-skinned creature of the night. For real, I think that I can still hear their breathy sighs of titillation on the echoes of the wind to this very day. Oh, the punchiness of a Friday afternoon. You've got to love it.  Today, it's being reported that best-selling author of THE VAMPIRE...

Jared Leto may be Josh Boone's choice for Lestat in Interview reboot

Things really seem to be picking up steam on Universal's planned reboot of Anne Rice 's INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE. Back in 2014, Josh Boone came aboard the project with designs on writing and directing a new version of the story that might focus more on the second and third books of Rice's The Vampire Chronicles than a strict retelling of INTERVIEW.

C'mon Hollywood: Have some integrity with your "adaptations"

Last week I went and saw WORLD WAR Z with an open mind. I read the book, ironically, while at a combat outpost in Iraq and it was an amazing, provoking, and creative tale that brought forth some awesome imagery, especially given my circumstances. It was so much more emotional and resonant than I thought it would be and when I finished the last page my first thought was, “That...

The Ten Spot: Our Favorite Tom Cruise Performances

This weekend sees the release of Tom Cruise’s latest extravaganza, OBLIVION, a film many of us have been looking forward to ever since that awesome trailer came out in December. Just a few short months ago, Cruise’s JACK REACHER- which for my money was just an OK Cruise pic- did so-so business in North America, but was a huge hit overseas (to the tune of 200 million).

Having grown up on a bevy of vampire films,...
