It is being eyed as a launchpad for a franchise universe based on Rice’s novels.

Anderson, whose credits also include the acclaimed crime drama Broadchurch, will next appear in a recurring role in the upcoming season of cult sci-fi series Doctor Who.

A 1994 feature adaptation of Interview With the Vampire starred Brad Pitt as Louis and Tom Cruise as Lestat.
