Interview with the Vampire, an upcoming series adaptation of Anne Rice's famous book of the same name, has been released. The new teaser highlights the toxic relationship between Louis (Jacob Anderson) and Lestat (Sam Reid), the two main vampires in the story.
Louis, a vampire, discusses his transformation into a vampire by a guy named Lestat, whom he has a tense connection with throughout the years. Lestat is impulsive, selfish, and seems to enjoy manipulating Louis. When it comes to the younger vampire, he sees his transformation into a vampire as a gift, while others as a curse.
Louis describes Lestat as his maker, mentor, and lover in his new trailer. Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian), the reporter who is reading Louis' story, highlights how there's clearly an abuser and an abuser in the two vampires' interactions. Yet, Louis believes they are both equal in the dark.
Rice wrote a total of 15 novels, all of which might be adapted into limited series or follow-up seasons of Interview with the Vampire. The Lives of the Mayfair Witches collection is a testament to AMC's commitment to a new interconnected television universe.
The Vampire Chronicles is still unexplored by live-action adaptations, although Brad Pitt played the lead role of Louis in 1994 and Tom Cruise brought Lestat to life in 2002, when she performed the poorly-received Queen of the Damned. That demonstrates how AMCs upcoming series has the potential to uphold Rice's legacy.
Bailey Bass will play Claudia and Assad Zaman will play Rashid in the next episode of Interview with the Vampire. Rice, who died in 2021, is acknowledged as a producer, as well as her son Christopher Rice. Mark Johnson will also serve as an executive producer for the series.
On October 2, Interview With The Vampire will launch on AMC and AMC+. Check out the new trailer here:
