Tee Hi Valjeanne,

Queen of Damned (the book)set up the an entire mythos for the chronicles. Anne's use of the User (Orsiris) legend was a master stroke. Queen of the Damned (the movie)had the right lead female role, but should have had Crews as Lestat and should not have omitted the entire Egyptian backstory to such a limited degree. In fact, the movie (or future remake)should focus more on the back story, in my humble opinion.

Valjeanne Jeffers Co-sign Sister Tee. I totally agree. The movie was a big disappointment, except for casting Aaliyah in the lead role -:)

Tee Let me run this by you. If we were to propose a 'Queen' remake this would be my cast suggestions: Aaliyah recreated as a 3d virtual model/avatar
Tom Crews as Lestat
Djimon Gaston Hounsou as King Ankil
Kyle Schmid as Armond
Bláthnaid McKeown as both the Red Hair Twins
Henry Cavill as Marius

Still thinking about actors/actresses for the other roles. Would love to read your suggestions.
