Jared Leto As The Vampire Lestat? Maybe

Earlier this week came the news that filmmaker Josh Boone’s remake of “Interview with the Vampire” is moving forward with he and co-writer and Jill Killington having finished the script.

Boone revealed the news himself on Twitter, and has since followed that up with another photo – one in which he seems to suggest actor Jared Leto might be the one taking on the role of the Vampire Lestat.

Are we all simply being trolled by Boone? Certainly no casting announcements have been made and so no further confirmations or denials have been forthcoming.

Whatever the case, author Anne Rice’s son Christopher Rice also tweeted this week about the announcement, saying: “We’re so excited about this and @JoshBooneMovies. Lots of great things to come. Stay tuned!.”
