Tom Cruise to Play Vampire Lestat Again?   

December 4, 2007 I'm a huge fan of "Interview with the Vampire." It was easily one of the best horror titles of the 1990s and it was a crime that Tom Cruise, who was exceptional as Vampire Lestat, didn't come back for "Queen of the Damned."

Well, according to, Cruise may be coming back for the role, following in the footsteps of Sly Stallone resurrecting Rocky and Rambo to resurrect a career.

"There are rumours swirling that Cruise’s production company United Artists are in talks to obtain the rights for the 4th book in Rice’s Vampire Chronicles, The Tale of the Body Thief. While it has not been explicitly stated that the movie would be a vehicle for Cruise to star in, it does seem to be the most likely option."
