Tale of the Body Thief coming soon?

All you Lestat fans you heard that right. THR is reporting that, the vampire Lestat may be heading back to the big-screen.

Braian Grazer and Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment has optioned the rights to Anne Rice's , The Tale of the Body Thief, the fourth book in The Vampire Chronicles.

Tom Cruise stepped into Lestat's shoes during 1994's Interview with the Vampire, which also starred Brad Pitt, Christian Slater and Kirsten Dunst. It was directed by Neil Jordan and made by Warner Bros. And it was utterly fantastic.

Then for some reason Warner Brothers skipped making the Vampire Lestat, and instead released Queen of the Damned, with Stuart Townsend as Lestat, which also starred Aaliyah, which wasn't nearly as successful as the first film, because let's face it, it wasn't all that good, especially compared to the source material.

Screenwriter Lee Patterson is working on the script, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing. 
In The Body Thief,  the story concerns body-switching. Lestat, depressed and lonely after centuries as a vampire, decides to transfer souls for a day with a psychic, who after the transfer reveals that he has no intention of switching back. Lestat, now in a human body and with the help of some friends, must track down the man and get his body back.

The project is in development and not set up at a studio. So bottom line, don't hold your breath waiting for this one, it could be a long time before it sees the light.
