The nineties have given us great film classics that will last throughout history, one of the most remembered films of that decade is interview with the vampire that unites a great cast full of stars. The story starring Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Christian Slater, Antonio Banderas and Kirsten Dunst was one of the greatest hits of the 90s and is considered one of the best vampire and fantasy films. In turn, it is available in HBO Max.
The film directed by Neil Jordan is based on the novel of the same name by Anne Rice published in 1976 which focuses on love, loss, power and immortality. Rice also participated in the script of the film headed by Pitt. The story was a total success, it meant a reversal of the classic vampire stories, a new look at this horror classic, and it ended up being considered a surprising adaptation of Rice’s novel.
As is customary today, in recent years remakes or new adaptations to stories already told have prevailed. In this case, interview with the vampire It was no exception since AMC launched its series based on the book by Anne Rice, who passed away in 2021. The premiere took place through the AMC Plus platform at the end of 2022, in October to be precise.
The new adaptation of Rice destined for the small screen has as protagonists sam reid like Lestat, Jacob Anderson like Louis de Pointe du Lac, bailee bass like little Claudia and Eric Bogosian like journalist David Molloy. This new cast seeks to give a more current vision to the original story and that in its first season it will have eight chapters.
The main idea behind AMC is to start a franchise from the books written by Rice, being the beginning of this Interview with the Vampire. And the story will focus a lot on the original story of the book, with certain adaptations for a more current audience. The series will focus mainly on immortality, love and will have racism as a change, since the new Louis de Pointe Du Lac is African-American in a society where his color is the only thing that matters. This character must face the racial prejudices of 1900 society until his paths cross with Lestat. All we will see is what Du Lac is currently telling the journalist Molloy, just as it happens in the movie.
Currently the series interview with the vampire It is only available for the United States on the platform of AMC, for the rest of the world it will be released at the beginning of this year. So far, the series has been very well received, with 98% approval from critics and 74% from the audience in Rotten Tomatoes. Surely, depending on the views, the franchise that AMC intends can take off as not.
