Two exhibits have been by no means going to be sufficient for a cinematic world known as “the immortal universe”. And now AMC has discovered its subsequent goal in Anne Rice’s many novels: The community is growing a sequence concerning the Talamasca, Rice’s secret society that retains tabs on the supernatural.
If you happen to simply thought, “Oh, nice, Torchwood vampire,” you are positively not alone.
To be honest, the Talamasca existed, fictionally talking, lengthy earlier than Captain Jack Harkness got here on the scene. However you commerce aliens for vampires and witches and also you get the gist: Description of AMC explains, the present “is ready on the planet of Talamasca, a secret group featured in various Rice’s iconic novels devoted to the research of the supernatural world and the safety of mortals from its darkest parts.”
Talamasca exists all through Rice’s sequence and has a ton of potential as connective tissue (and cross-fodder) amongst Interview with the Vampire, Witches of Mayfairand no matter AMC is as much as subsequent.
John Lee Hancock is on board to write down and function showrunner for the sequence. It is a bit of an odd selection, as a result of Hancock’s resume consists of The blind aspect (as director and co-writer), Snow White and the Hunter (co-writer), and – maybe this one is a little more related – the Stephen King adaptation Mr. Harrigan’s cellphone (screenwriter and director). He additionally created the short-lived 90s TV sequence LA Docs.
AMC has the rights to Rice’s Vampire Chronicles and Lives of the Mayfair Witches, 18 books in complete, and wasted no time bringing these tales to the small display. Each Interview with the Vampire (pictured above) and Witches of Mayfair are coming into their second season.
The Talamasca sequence is just in improvement, so no casting or timeline has been introduced. But it surely looks as if a strong subsequent step in making this universe suitably immortal.
