(Offering my neck...)
So now--Robert Downey, Jr. as Lestat? HELL YEAH. He would be fantastic. I love vampire stories...with the big, fat exception of that goddamned "Twilight" crap. It's time for GROWN UP vampires again, yes?
Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that the ever-charming Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., is in “close talks” to play the vampire Lestat in a “restart” of The Vampire Chronicles, a series of novels by author Anne Rice first written in the ’70s. It (mostly) tells the tale of a French nobleman, Lestat de Lioncourt, who gets turned into a vampire in the 18th century.Again. Yes, please.
