hopefully they redo the whole series.
I really loved the original. Don't really see the need for a remake. But it will be a mix of IwtV and The Vampire Lestat.

Boo, I love the original.
1. River Phoenix was going to play the role of the interviewer until he OD'd. Christian Slater did the job for basically nothing.
2. The cover of Sympathy for the Devil was the final straw for Guns and Roses. Axel didn't like Slash's guitar work, sent him a memo to rerecord it more like the Keith Richard's version and when he didn't Axel just got another dude to record the track instead. That's how fucking stupid Axel Rose was at the end there.
3. Tom Cruise gives one of his best performances ever as Lestat. Anne Rice hated the casting initially but upon seeing the film did nothing but praise Cruise.
Weird, last time I heard anything about any of this stuff it was talks about Cruise coming back to play Lestat years ago
The original is dope.
I hope HBO or somebody picks up the Witch books for a series instead of movies.

Hoping they are remaking just so they can have a consistent cast through the rest of the movies they never got to. Loved this series in book form, but Queen of the Damned the movie was a total shitshow. Early rumor is they want Jared Leto for Lestat.
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
I read the series a longggg time ago,and really only liked the first one. The rest just devolved into trash even the Lestat book.
I thought the movie was a pretty good vision of that first book, but I could see a remake if it was handled like "Let me In", and not some flashy Hollywood mess.
Kirsten Dunst was the perfect gothic loli.
As far remake goes, this is ok with me. Simply because I hope we get the first three books. Interview was great and as a stand alone doesn't need a remake, but we never really get to see the rest, and that kinda sucks.
My one true complaint with the movie is that it should have been set in the early 80s rather than the mid 90s. That way they could have used Bauhaus. But Bauhaus was probably too expensive anyway.
The effects were cheesy as shit, but some of the visuals in Queen outstripe Interview. And that's what goth is, really. It's just an aesthetic. They completely nailed it.
Finally! I like my vampires that crisp in the sun. No more sparkling Hollywood vampires!
