Does Josh Boone sleep? It’s a fair question these days, as the director of The Fault in Our Stars has become one of the most in-demand filmmakers in Hollywood. One week he’s teasing fans with the cover of his New Mutants screenplay and exactly one week later he’s reminding us all that, oh yeah, he’s also the guy who Universal picked in 2014 to handle the reboot of Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles. And while it’s now one week later and Boone is back to teasing his New Mutants adaptation, this time with art for the characters, people just suddenly noticed the above screenplay cover for Interview With the Vampire, and there was enough buzz to shoot it on up the trending news ladder on Thursday.
Of course, it’s easy to miss something that Boone is working on, because the guy is seriously working on so much right now. Remember, this is the guy who was finally chosen to direct that massive, two-or-three installment film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand, after endless directorial shuffling and casting rumors galore, and he had to put that on hold so he could direct another King adaptation, Revival. And according to his IMDb profile, he’s also writing and directing one of King’s personal favorites, Lisey’s Story. Hell, for all we know, this Instagram post from Boone isn’t a celebration of King’s work as much as it’s his own to-do list.
