Jared Leto Cast as Lestat in INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE Reboot?
Yesterday, director Josh Boone posted an image of his completed script for the Interview With The Vampire reboot that he's been working on. Now it seems as if Boone has already cast the actor who will play Lestat. He posted an image on his Twitter feed of Jared Leto with the caption: “Lestat - there can be only one. #JaredLeto.” You can see that tweet below:
I don’t know if this is just wishful thinking on his part and he’s trying to get fans railed up, or if Leto will actually be playing the character in these upcoming Vampire Chronicles film adaptations.
Before this was posted Anne Rice’s son Christopher Rice prepared fans for some big announcements to come with the following tweet:
So maybe this Jared Leto casting is the real deal. If it is, he’s freakin’ perfect for the part! I thought Tom Cruise was great as Lestat in the 1994 film, but I can totally get behind and support Leto in the role. I think he’s the best actor they could have chosen for the part, and he’ll bring the character to the big screen again in the best possible way. The guy is an incredibly talented actor. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how this all plays out.
What do you all think about Leto taking on the role of Lestat?
