It’s a dream come true for novelist Anne Rice. After having seen the first part of her saga “The Vampire Chronicles”, which was adapted for the cinema in 1994, the AMC television channel has just acquired the rights to adapt this series, which contains a total of 13 volumes. The announcement was officially made on May 13. And that’s not all! The company has also acquired the “Lives of the Mayfair Witches” saga.
The High Priestess of Fantasy will work as executive producer, alongside her son, Christopher, on all future film and series projects resulting from this deal. The rights are estimated to be worth between 30 and 40 million dollars according to Variety magazine. Given that Anne Rice’s novels have sold more than 150 million copies around the world, one can imagine that audiences will inevitably be watching.
