An eventual adaptation of Interview with the Vampire directed by Neil Jordan and produced by David Geffen was released inalthough not without controversy, particularly over fan reaction to the casting of Tom Cruise as Lestatan objection initially shared by Anne Rice, which she recanted after seeing the finished film.
After the commercial and critical success of InterviewNeil Jordan began initial development of the novel's sequel, The Vampire Lestatalthough this went nowhere. As the rights to the novels would revert to Anne Akasha Vampire at the end of initial story meetings to adapt one or both of the remaining Vampire Chronicles began in It was also decided to focus on Lestat as the primary character, and the back story of Akasha and the Story of the Twins were omitted, despite these being virtually central to the plot of the novel.
The key factor is that Akasha Vampire entire vampire contract terminates in the year All the properties revert to me at that time, unless production commences—principal photography that is—before then.
I don't think it is possible for Warner Bros. They simply weren't interested. It was very painful for me, Akasha Vampire I had been talking to a new director they'd hired and we were both excited about the idea.
I felt snubbed and hurt and have not bothered to approach them since. I'm not too surprised. I think any respectable script writer would be crazy to tackle that novel without having fully developed the background story of Lestat. Anyway, Killing Stalking Spoilers is where it is. Another Australian, Michael Rymerwas confirmed to direct. Rymer suggested the film be shot in his home city of Melbournewhich would save considerably on production costs.
The search for an actor to play Lestat took much longer—the idea of Tom Cruise reprising the role was considered but dismissed—although front runners included Wes BentleyJosh Hartnett and Heath Ledger.
With a large cast of international and Australian actors, Queen of the Damned began principal photography on October 2, and ended on February 27,in a former Sonja Bengtsson Sex factory, converted into a studio in the Melbourne suburb of St. Location filming took place around the city of Melbourne, although some filming was done in Los Angeles. For the scenes of Lestat's concert in Death Valleyover goths were recruited from Melbourne nightclubs and on the Internet, then driven on a fleet of buses to a quarry in Werribee to act as extras.
The songs for Lestat's band were written and performed by Jonathan Davis of the nu metal band Kornand Richard Gibbsalthough Davis's contractual commitments to Sony BMG meant that his vocals could not appear on the soundtrack album. Akasha Vampire is Jonathan Davis' version although the credits list it as the Wayne Static version from the album.
Davis also made a small cameo in the film. The score for the film was also composed by Gibbs and Davis. Both the main soundtrack album and score album were released in Frank Fitzpatrick and Rich Dickerson were the Music Supervisors for the film and the soundtrack album. The original studio recording of "Careless Akasha's Lament " was written and produced by Davis and Gibbs, during the Queen of the Damned sessions. Davis released the song in downloadable form via Amazon Akasha Vampire iTunes on November 16, Plans to record a duet between Aaliyah and Davis never materialised, due to Aaliyah's death.
By July Madam Shirley, author Anne Rice had mellowed her previous stance on the film, much as she had with Interview.
When asked about the film's progress, she answered: . Everything I hear about the movie is good. They are working very hard to make it perfect. I have no real news. Let me repeat what I mentioned in a recent message. I met Stuart Townsend, the young man who is playing Lestat and he was absolutely charming. He had Lestat's excellent speaking voice and his feline grace. I cannot wait to see him in the film. He claimed in court that it was Aaliyah's character Queen Akasha from the film that told him to do it.
