I know there are plenty of Aspiring Filmmakers (writers/Directors) here. So here is a scenario: What book/Comic/Graphic Novel would You Like to adapt into a movie? Would you be as faithful as possible or would you put a different spin on it? Who would be in the cast? Who be the Composer? What Music would be in the Soundtack? My choice would be Both Anne Rice Books from the Vampire Chronicles: The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned. However, Instead of ignoring Interview with the Vampire like the other "Queen of The Damned" movie I would link it. (and do what the WB Should have done an Made a Trilogy of the books) As far as being faithful, again I would be as faithful as possible to the Books, as much as Anne Rice was faithful in her screenplay. As far as Cast Goes For th most part I would keep it the same as it was for Interview with the Vampire: (ie: Lestat: Tom Cruise, Louis: Brad Pitt) But for the rest: (To Start) The Vampire Lestat: Magnus: Jermy Irons Gabrielle: Either Michelle Pfeiffer, Emma Thompson or Cate Blanchet Nicholas: Johnny Depp Marius: Either Sam Neil or Hugo Weaving Queen of the Damned Maharet/Mekare: Either Salma Hayek or Aishwarya Rai Akasha: Rosario Dawson Music: John Williams Sountrack: Some songs from Guns and Roses, Queen and Rolling Stones. Sympathy for the Devil (both versions) The Invisible Man Plus some Original Music from Lestat's Band.
