Back in 2014 it was announced that Universal had acquired the rights to the second and third installments of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles series.

The volumes, titled 'The Vampire Lestat' and 'The Queen of the Damned' were expected to be combined into one movie which would essentially act as a sequel to Interview with the Vampire, Neil Jordan's Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt starring classic. Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) had been hired to write and direct the proposed movie. However now it appears that Boone has written a draft for a Interview with the Vampire remake instead.

Not only is there a script in place but it seems Boone has a firm idea as to who he'd like to take over from Tom Cruise as Lestat.

It could just be a case of Boone trolling fans but we could see Leto in the role.

Who else do you think would be right for the part? Let us know in the comments.
