Jared Leto Eyed for ‘The Vampire Lestat’

9 May 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Vampire Lestat director Josh Boone eyes Suicide Squad’s Jared Leto for the lead role. 

Josh Boone is no stranger to adapting books to the big screen. He successfully brought The Fault in our Stars to cinema masses and spent several months trying (and sadly failing) at bringing a big screen version of Stephen King‘s The Stand  to life. This experience doesn’t seem to have deterred him as it was last week announced that he has begun work on bringing some of Anne Rice‘s finest stories to life.

Whilst initial reports suggested Boone would be remaking 90’s gothic classic Interview with the Vampire it has now surfaced that he will focus in on a different novel, The Vampire Lestat, which does feature parts of Interview with the Vampire. The vampire features in several of Rice’s novels and was made famous on the screen in Interview with the Vampire »

Director Josh Boone tells social media the script for Interview With The Vampire is done and Jared Leto is the only one.

Rumours are circulating that there is a new Lestat in town. Director Josh Boone took to Instagram to post an image of the finished Interview With The Vampire reboot screenplay and that he has an idea for one of the two main vampire roles.

“Lestat - there can be only one. #JaredLeto”, Boone posted.

When the first Interview with the Vampire movie cast Tom Cruise as the rock star vampire, Anne Rice fans, and Anne Rice herself, were not best pleased. Rice envisioned the role as perfect for Rutger Hauer, Rice fans thought it would be risky business to turn the Vampire Chronicles into a Top Gun movie.

Boone’s posting followed a tweet from Anne Rice’s son Christopher Rice that said big announcements were on the way. »

Jared Leto Wanted as Lestat in Interview with the Vampire Remake

5 May 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Is Jared Leto Lestat in the upcoming Interview with the Vampire remake? While we have no directo confirmation that is the case, the movie's screenwriter Josh Boone has tweeted out his own personal pick for the iconic vampire Lestat de Lioncourt in this impending remake. Though, he doesn't give us much to go on. He simply says the following about his possible casting pick.

"Lestat - there can be only one. #JaredLeto."

Yesterday, we reported that the long-gestating remake of Interview with the Vampire is still moving forward, with writer-director Josh Boone showing off the cover page to his recently-completed script, which he co-wrote with Jill Killington. The image revealed that the project is based on two of Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles books, Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat, although nothing more is known about the adaptation, or how closely it will stick to these two novels. »

Interview with the Vampire Remake Script Is Finished

4 May 2016 6:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in the summer of 2014, Universal Pictures acquired the rights to author Anne Rice's entire The Vampire Chronicles novel series, including Interview With the Vampire, Queen of the Damned and The Vampire Lestat. A few weeks later, the studio brought on The Fault in our Stars filmmaker Josh Boone to write and direct an adaptation entitled The Vampire Chronicles, which would be based on Queen of the Damned and The Vampire Lestat. It seems the focus of this project has changed a bit, with Josh Boone recently revealing the title page of his script for a remake of Interview with the Vampire.

The filmmaker posted this photo of the script title page to his Instagram account last week, which revealed the title is in fact Interview With the Vampire, which will be based on the book of the same name, and The Vampire Lestat. The filmmaker co-wrote the script with Jill Killington, »

Viggo Mortensen Talks About Getting Cast in The Lord of the Rings, 15 Years Later

23 January 2016 5:15 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's hard to imagine anyone but Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings films, but once upon a time, someone else was supposed to get the part. Devoted fans probably know that Irish actor Stuart Townsend was originally cast in the film, but days into filming, he exited, and Mortensen stepped in. At an indie actors panel at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, Mortensen opened up about getting the role that eventually catapulted him to A-list status. "I came to [the movie] very late. There was someone who has already been cast, which was a tricky thing. It was a mutual decision - it was nothing personal - that he was too young for the part, so they asked me. I felt funny about that . . . I hadn't read the trilogy. I read The Hobbit. I first said I didn't want to do it. You have to know whether you can, »
