On the casting of Stuart Townsend as Lestat, Anne Rice stated "Everything I hear about the movie is good. Warner Bros. is extremely enthusiastic. They are working very hard to make it perfect.

He had Lestat's excellent speaking voice and his feline grace. I cannot wait to see him in the film". See more »

Not even a score of 1 is low enough for this movie. It is a complete butchering of Anne Rice's masterpiece novel "The Queen of the Damned" which you should read if you haven't already because once you read this book you will realize how bad the movie truly is. In my opinion the only reason it did as well as it did in the theaters is because of all Aaliyah's fans who wanted to come see her last movie. Take my advice stay as far away from this movie as you can get!
