Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.11.18] vampires

The last time we had any news on Anne Rice's personal quest to take "The Vampire Chronicles" to television was over a year ago when the author-turned-producer did a Q&A for fans with a very big-ideas discussion of the project.

Though she and her team, namely her son Christopher, have been working on the project for a few years now, it's been quite some time since we've seen any big announcements on the project beyond the news that it was happening. And then this morning, in a Facebook post to fans, Anne and Christopher made a big reveal: they have a new collaborator and though they've yet to announce his role, the very fact that he's involved is enough to get at least this fan excited.

Bryan Fuller, he of "American Gods," "Hannibal," and "Star Trek Discovery" fame, has signed on to the project.

Besides the fact that Fuller has excellent taste and an eye for the dark, perhaps the most exciting part of this announcement is also the fact that Fuller only signs onto projects he believes in and what's more, he's willing to step away if things don't meet his expectations. As a nice bonus, there's also the hope that regular Fuller collaborator David Slade will have a hand in shaping some of the look of the show.

Hopefully the announcement of Fuller is only the first of much more to come from the project which is moving forward slowly. Hopefully the snail pace also means that the team is simply doing everything in their power to ensure "The Vampire Chronicles" doesn't stumble before it even gets out the gate.

The full announcement can be read here.
